Iveco has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Enel X, which will see the companies explore a possible collaboration that will unlock the potential of e-mobility for commercial vehicles in Europe, with a focus on light commercial vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles and buses.

The two companies will assess how Iveco electric trucks can support the transition of Enel’s fleet to zero emission vehicles, while examining new joint opportunities in other transport segments.

The collaboration also aims to develop a joint offer addressing the e-mobility of commercial fleets, including but not limited to recharging infrastructure for light and heavy commercial vehicles. Iveco and Enel X will leverage on their research & development and technical expertise to evaluate the interoperability of the Enel X charging infrastructure with Iveco e-vehicles, and the potential joint development of advanced services.

“We have embarked on a path towards zero CO2 emissions, where electrification is a fundamental enabler for achieving the objectives of the entire commercial vehicle sector,” said Luca Sra, president truck business unit, Iveco Group.

“We are fully committed to this path, and the MoU that we are signing today with Enel X marks the beginning of a strategic collaboration for Iveco with one of the most advanced players in the energy sector. We are confident that this will create opportunities to further accelerate the energy transition we are driving.”
