From 7 to 11 November 2022, Iveco Group has presented Latin America’s first complete alternative propulsion truck and powertrain range at the Fenatran transport fair in São Paulo, Brazil.

The group showcased a full range of advanced, clean emission and sustainable transport solutions from the Iveco and FPT Industrial brands.

The fastest growing commercial vehicle “full liner” in Latin America, with sales increased by three times in the last three years, Iveco is the first brand in Brazil to offer the market a complete “green” portfolio in all segments in which it operates, reaffirming its commitment to global trends in urban mobility, innovation and sustainability.

By 2025, approximately USD$200 million will have been invested by Iveco Group to meet the region’s fast-changing needs. Much of the amount is being allocated to the development of the Euro VI engine line, which meets requirements of the Program for the Control of Air Pollution by Motor Vehicles (Proconve P8), which will become mandatory in 2023.

The Euro VI portfolio includes the Iveco Daily 35-160, the first Euro VI commercial vehicle presented to the Brazilian market, positioning the Daily as one of the major players in the lightweight segment and in the fast-developing e-commerce business. Also debuting at the show are the Daily Hi-Matic, the first light cargo vehicle with an automatic gearbox, and the eDAILY, a fully electric version aimed at urban missions.

In the heavy-duty segment, the S-WAY, just launched in Brazil, brings together robustness, technology, comfort and safety in a modern and award-winning design that privileges aerodynamics; overall, the model ensures up to 15% reduction in fuel consumption versus the previous truck range. The S-WAY powered by biomethane is also debuting, with the best-in-class gas engine and related autonomy in the market, while significantly reducing the CO2 emissions. For heavy and semi-heavy duty off-road missions, Iveco’s Tector range gains a CNG-powered version. Both the S-WAY and Tector CNG models will be available in Brazil by the end of 2023.

“We are strongly committed to reaching our environmental, social and financial targets and applying what is needed to pave the road to an increasingly sustainable transport model, including here in Latin America,” said Gerrit Marx, CEO of Iveco Group.

“This is definitely a strategic region for Iveco Group and plays a key role in our future success.

“It is one of the main focus areas of our investments and growth today, which will consolidate the Group’s commitment to continue evolving our business in a region that keeps showing enormous potential.”
