The IVECO S-WAY tractors pulled some celebratory floats during the parade, a very important event in England that took place just recently. IVECO supplied three of its IVECO S-WAY tractor units, to pull three of the pageant’s floats, of which two vehicles were CNG-powered (Compressed Natural Gas), which provided a sustainable approach to the event.
The two bio-methane fuelled IVECO S-WAYs (AS440S46TP natural gas) pulled the ‘70s Northern Soul Trailer and the Platinum Pals float featuring beloved children’s characters over the years including Postman Pat, Sooty & Sweep, Bill & Ben, Bagpuss, Paddington Bear, Danger Mouse, and Wallace & Gromit. The third IVECO S-WAY tractor unit (AS440S49TX/P) pulled the ‘80s Breakdance float. The Platinum Jubilee Pageant had all the excitement and spectacle of an international parade and carnival with street arts, theatre, music, circus, carnival and costume to celebrate Her Majesty’s duty, love of the natural world and dedication to the Commonwealth.
