In News, Iveco2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineSeptember 30, 2022

The Iveco X-Way 570 belonging to Daily Freight OD AJ Singh has been voted 2022 Top Truck of the Year. AJ received more than twice the number of votes than the next favourite during voting, which ran from 12 August to 18 September on the New Zealand Trucking website.

AJ’s affable and humble nature reflects his career journey, which started at 16, working on the family farm in India. At 18, AJ had arrived in New Zealand seeking greener pastures and a route into the driving seat of a real highway rig. Just over seven years later, he took delivery of the Iveco and has been living his dream since.

As ever, the Top Truck of the Year competition is supported by the good folks at Power Retreads, who will award AJ a new set of retread drive tyres, valued at up to $4500. Rochelle Thomas of Auto Art by Rochelle will also provide a bespoke painting of the winning truck based on the Top Truck poster printed with the August 2022 issue.

These prizes, along with the 2021-2022 John Murphy Memorial Top Truck of the Year plaque – awarded in memory of the former editor of New Zealand Trucking magazine – will be presented to AJ soon, so look out for that report in an upcoming issue.

Congratulations to AJ, and well done to all the other trucks in contention this year. Our thanks to everyone who voted.
