The compact and light natural gas engine with an engine capacity of 7.7 litres achieves the performance of a diesel engine while simultaneously setting benchmarks in terms of noise and emissions. The turbocharged engine is based on the state-of-the-art OM 936 turbodiesel engine. The vertically installed, six-cylinder, in-line, mono-fuel engine runs on compressed natural gas. It produces 222 kW (302 hp) while consistently delivering a peak torque of 1200 Nm between 1200 rpm and 1600 rpm. In many instances, the natural gas engine undercuts the Euro VI emission limits by a considerable margin. Automatic transmission units with torque converters bring the power onto the road.
