The new Volvo VNL 300 tractor is now available for the U.S. and Canada with a natural gas-powered Cummins ISX12N “Near Zero” engine.

“The Cummins ISX12N represents best-in-class gas engine technology for local pick-up and delivery and regional haul operations,” said John Moore, Volvo Trucks North America product marketing manager – powertrain. “The low carbon footprint, expanded delivery and distribution, abundant supply and stable pricing of natural gas offer substantial benefits to fleet operators looking to utilize the fuel as a clean, quiet and cost effective alternative to diesel without the need for a DPF or SCR system.”

With available engine ratings of 350 horsepower with 1,450 lb-ft torque up to 400 horsepower with 1,450 lb-ft torque, the ISX12N natural gas-powered engine is approved for gross combination weights of up to 80,000 lbs, making it well suited for heavy-duty regional-haul truck and tractor applications, port drayage, vocational, refuse and conventional straight truck applications.

The natural gas power plant can be operated on compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, or renewable natural gas. The ISX12N engine is OBD (On-Board Diagnostic) compliant and U.S. EPA and CARB certified.
