Iveco has used the 60th UITP World Congress and Mobility & City Transport Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland as a venue to introduce the change of name of its passenger transport business from Iveco Irisbus to Iveco Bus and to launch its latest passenger vehicle complete with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) option — the Iveco Urbanway.
Iveco explains the new Iveco Bus brand reinforces the identity of this business together with the rest of the company’s international activities. This promotes further development and recognition for the products of the bus range as a part of Iveco, specifically in markets such as South America and China, where the company has an important consolidated presence.
The launch of the all new Urbanway citibus is the first of the brand’s vehicles to be offered with a Euro VI engine. The driveline can be custom ordered with alternative Diesel, CNG or Hybrid drivelines. Euro VI chassis versions are also available for bodybuilder adaptations.
Available in 10.5, 12 and 18 meter-lengths, the vehicle can be equipped with two, three or four doors. As a BHNS (Buses with a High Level of Service) model, the Urbanway accommodates a wide range of configurations from basic to premium with over 3,500 styling combinations from extended side windows to roof streamlining, custom seating and trims.
All vehicle aspects have been taken into consideration with a focus on performance, durability and simplified maintenance allowing for low Total Cost of Ownership.
The CNG version is equipped with a Cursor 8 CNG engine. This Euro VI approved engine allows operators to continue to expand their fleet of CNG buses with the same technology as Euro V / EEV vehicles. The Cursor engine layout makes for easy access with a simple and wide opening for the front and rear panels to allow for easy daily checks and rapid maintenance.
