IVECO also unveils at IAA 2022 the new colour it has chosen for its brand logo to signal the strength of this ambition, powering up” its flagship blue by switching to the new Energy Blueshade, a contemporary colour that associates the brand with power, dynamism and digital innovation.

IVECO: a unique legacy to drive the road of change 

The exhibition stand draws in visitors and takes them on a journey through IVECO history, which begins with the brand’s Tree of Energy: an inverted tree with roots pointing up to the historic brands in IVECO’s unique legacy – Fiat, OM, Lancia, Unic, Magirus, Pegaso. The Tree of Energy harnesses this rich heritage to power the brand’s latest technologies displayed around it on the stand. IVECO’s forward-looking vision is tangible throughout the stand: 17 vehicles representative of the brand’s latest alternative propulsion solutions and dedicated integrated services. A further 29 vehicles are exhibited in the outdoor area, showcasing the brand’s full line covering all light, medium and heavy commercial vehicle missions as well as people mobility. IVECO is also offering visitors the opportunity to test drive the new IVECO eDAILY BEV, Nikola Tre BEV and prototype eDAILY FCEV, and experience the DAILY featuring the revolutionary Air Pro suspension.

New eDAILY: a game changer in zero emissions regional transport 

IVECO leads the charge toward zero-emission electric transport with the official launch of the eDAILY. The ‘electric twin’ of the iconic DAILY, it offers the full range with all body variants – van, cab and minibus, from 3.5t to 7.2t. It maintains the DAILY’s celebrated signature features and features a 37kWh fully modular battery set that allows range optimization and makes the eDAILY adaptable to all missions.

The new eDAILY also breaks new ground by introducing electric vehicles in the conversion business with the game-changing opportunity to install different types of ePTOs up to 15kW. This means that it can power refrigeration units, cranes and other superstructures – even the most demanding ones such as waste collection and aerial platforms, as showcased on the stand.

IVECO offers a full ecosystem of services with the eDAILY to help customers find their way to e-mobility. Dedicated e-services include the innovative eDAILY Routing app, which interacts with the vehicle to predict vehicle range, required battery charges to reach the destination, and the precise arrival time. The IVECO ON Easy Daily app, integrated with the IVECO DRIVER PAL vocal assistant, offers information specific to electric vehicles, such as vehicle health check, battery level, remote scheduling of recharge and preconditioning, navigation to recharging stations, and more.

Ahmet Oğuz from Devir Saati has been able to test the new IVECO eDAILY at the press day of the IAA Transportation 2022 fair. His opinion in short: “I liked the eDaily. It proves me that the future is electric and it has already started. Who does it fast and best will win both the hearts and pockets of the customers.

Strategic partnerships on the path to decarbonizing regional and long-haul transport 

IVECO shared the stage of the Press Conference with two strategic partners in its path to decarbonization: Nikola Corporation and Hyundai Motor Company

Nikola’s hydrogen powered fuel cell electric heavy long-haul truck Nikola Tre FCEV has seen the light of the day for the first time in front of international journalists at the press day of IAA Transportation 2022 fair on the 19th of September 2022 in Hanover. Nikola and IVECO have together been investing in electric trucks both battery electric (BEV) and hydrogen powered fuel cell electric (FCEV) since the beginning of their collaboration and pioneering the global truck industry by developing high-tech zero emission long-haul trucks with alternative driveline solutions. So called FCEV (Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle) has two major advantages over BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle), the first having a longer maximum range and the second a much shorter refueling time both comparable to vehicles with internal combustion engines.

Nikola Corporation (Nasdaq: NKLA), whose exhibit is hosted on IVECO’s stand, announced the official opening of orders for the European 4×2 Artic version of the Nikola Tre BEV and presented a prototype Nikola Tre FCEV in its European 6×2 Artic version – the brand’s latest solutions to decarbonize regional and long-haul missions with vehicles that are intended to increase performance, efficiency and durability. These first-generation vehicles, capable of ranges of approximately 500km and 800km respectively, are competing in the toughest heavy-duty missions against very well-established fossil diesel, which has had more than a century and many generations of vehicles to reach their current state.

Nikola Corporation, whose exhibit is hosted on IVECO’s stand, announced the official opening of orders for the European 4×2 Artic version of the Nikola Tre BEV.

IVECO and Hyundai unveiled a working prototype of eDAILY FCEV equipped with Hyundai’s 90 kW hydrogen fuel cell system and 140 kW e-motor, and a battery pack by FPT Industrial, the powertrain brand of IVECO Group. The GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) 7.2 ton prototype has been tested in Europe, confirming a range of 350 km, maximum payload of 3 tons and a refuelling time within 15 minutes. While the eDAILY BEV is best suited to short journeys, the eDAILY FCEV will be ideal for deliveries requiring a long range with high payload. The eDAILY FCEV prototype and a Hyundai Fuel Cell exhibit are on display on the IVECO stand.

His opinion in short: “It is fun, exciting and intriguing. I can’t wait to drive it personally at the first opportunity.”
