The on-road IVECO S-WAY is the first vehicle in the new IVECO WAY heavy range, developed to deliver a complete package of features and services focused on the driver, on sustainability and on an advanced level of connectivity-enabling new customised services. A natural gas version is offered, the only alternative to diesel.
The IVECO S-WAY was launched at a global event held in Madrid, involving global leader partners Amazon, Shell and Microsoft. Hubertus Mühlhäuser, Chief Executive Officer of CNH Industrial, presented the strategic outlook and vision of CNH Industrial at the event.
Mühlhäuser commented: “Within CNH Industrial, IVECO is part of something bigger and uses the synergies within the Group. This new flagship Heavy Duty Truck is not only an achievement for the IVECO brand, it is also an important milestone for CNH Industrial as a whole.”
With this launch, the brand is introducing its new IVECO WAY heavy range that marks a strong shift towards providing customers with an integrated transport solution, economically and environmentally sustainable, in which the services around the product become more important than the product itself.
In his speech, Gerrit Marx, President Commercial and Specialty Vehicles, explained: “We want to become the Easiest-to-work-and-innovate-with Truck OEM for our suppliers and customers, while tailoring our vehicles around a driver´s life, which today is more than just the route he travels. Sustainability also entails our responsibility to make this job, which is crucial for our society, a more attractive and enjoyable one… which goes beyond just adding leather and wood applications.”
The Complete Package plus Reduced TCO
The IVECO S-WAY carries over all the advances introduced in the previous generations and adds a new cab entirely redesigned around the driver’s and the owner’s needs. In the face of fierce competition, logistics operators need top-level uptime, efficiency and productivity from their fleets. The new IVECO S-WAY perfectly meets this requirement, providing a complete package of features and services without equal, developed with focus on driver centricity, sustainability and a new, extended level of connectivity aimed at reducing Total Cost of Ownership.
The driver-centric design of the new cab provides first-rate living and working conditions with a spacious environment, outstanding driving ergonomics, and a well-planned layout that combines functionality with comfort. The design also addresses driver safety with the reinforced structure (ECE R29.03 cab crash compliant) and much improved visibility all around and in all conditions.
In redesigning the cab from the ground up, IVECO has taken every opportunity to deliver cost savings and productivity gains to the benefit of the owner’s profitability. The new design optimises aerodynamic performance, further increasing the vehicle’s excellent fuel efficiency by up to 4%. Also contributing to the low Total Cost of Ownership are design features such as the multi-piece bumper that dramatically reduces repair costs, as only the affected part needs to be replaced in the event of damage.
The new, advanced Connectivity Box in the IVECO S-WAY is a powerful connectivity enabler and true game-changer. It collects, processes and exchanges data in real time. It works off a service platform developed in partnership with Microsoft that provides safe data storage and management, and many value-added services.
IVECO S-WAY: Natural Power
For logistics operators wishing to run a ‘green’ fleet, the IVECO S-WAY Natural Power remains the only LNG truck offering a range of up to 1,600 km for long haul missions with 460 hp. With this vehicle, they will benefit from all the advantages of natural gas, the only immediately available low-emission alternative to diesel in the heavy segment, which delivers Particulate Matter emissions 99% lower than diesel, 90% less NO2 and, with biomethane, CO2 is 95% lower, near zero.
