The tractor launch follows last year's X-Way lighter truck for mixed on- and off-road duty.
The on-road IVECO S-way is the first vehicle in the new IVECO Way heavy range, featuring a new cab design and extra connected services. It was launched at a global event held in Madrid.
The design also addresses driver safety with the reinforced structure (ECE R29.03 cab crash compliant) and improved visibility all around and in all conditions. It also is said to improve fuel efficiency by up to 4%. A multi-piece bumper reduces repair costs, as only the affected part needs to be replaced in the event of damage.
The new, advanced connectivity box in the IVECO S-WAY collects, processes and exchanges data in real time. It works off a service platform developed in partnership with Microsoft that provides safe data storage and management, and many value-added services. Owners and drivers are constantly connected with the vehicle on their mobile device or PC through the user-friendly MyIVECO portal and app.
My IVECO Way Solutions offers a new modular offer of premium personalised services, including professional fuel advising, fleet management and maintenance, to optimise the fleet’s performance and efficiency.
A Natural Power gas engine version is also available.
The new IVECO WAY design is said to reflect a key trends driving the transport industry: a blurring of the lines separating the vehicle and the services around it, the advanced connectivity, the need to attract and keep highly skilled professional drivers, and increasingly demanding requirements in sustainability.
