Hyundai and Iveco have signed a supply agreement of an IVECO-badged all-electric light commercial vehicle for Europe, based on Hyundai’s Global eLCV platform.

The new vehicle will join Iveco Group’s electric light commercial vehicle lineup, enhancing the Group’s LCV portfolio alongside the IVECO Daily.

Hyundai and Iveco initiated their partnership in March 2022 and have since generated concrete results related to hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles, including the co-development of the eDAILY FCEV and the launch of the E-WAY FCEV city bus.

The IVECO-badged vehicle will be the first export model to apply Hyundai’s new Global all-electric Light Commercial Vehicle platform, a dedicated global EV platform made for commercial vehicles ranging from GVW 2.5 to 3.5 tonnes. The platform features Hyundai’s latest technology for next generation BEVs with a low-floor design that allows enhanced usability for cargo loading and carrying.

Under the partnership, Hyundai will manufacture and supply the IVECO-badged chassis cab for the European market and Iveco Group will locally customise and distribute the complete vehicles exclusively through its sales channels.

Iveco Group’s new product based on Hyundai’s Global eLCV platform will launch at this year’s IAA Transportation 2024, planned to be held from 16 to 22 September 2024, in Hannover, Germany.
