History

NGV Powertrain is a young company but has a great tradition: our expertise is the result of years lifelong experience on the field.

The founders started their activity 25 years ago, in a workshop maintaining all kinds of engines. Initially, only diesel and petrol engines and from 1997 dealing with the very first gas engines.

Later they started working on the conversion of diesel engines in natural gas and dual fuel, especially for buses and trucks.

In 2019 David Caponi and Luca Iori founded NGV Powertrain. They treasured all precious experience gathered in the past, with a future based vision. 

We continue our activity of conversing engines to natural gas, but we added a new mission: project and produce powertrain with alternative fuels right from the start.

Our new challenges regard the design of alternatives engines, fueled by hydrogen, alcohol or hybrid electric ones.

As we aim to please our clients, we broaden our horizons. We now project and realize integrated powertrain frames for on-road vehicles as well as a series of special vehicles. All have one common denominator: client tailored planning and design, excelling in audacious personality.

We are a reference for those who look at the future.
