IVECO shows off right-hand drive S-WAY tractor26 November 2020

At a digital event held at IVECO UK’s headquarters in Basildon, Essex hosted by Cara Roberts and motor-racing driver Steve Parrish, IVECO introduced right-hand drive variants of its new IVECO S-WAY heavy truck to the UK.

The new truck, available now, is said to offer new levels of aerodynamic performance and style, outstanding fuel efficiency and advanced connectivity.

The IVECO S-WAY is the first vehicle to arrive in the UK under the new WAY range.

An entirely new cab has been redesigned around the needs of both the driver and operator. The design is said to provide greatly improved all-round visibility and a reinforced ECE R29.03 cab crash compliant structure.

Available as a rigid truck and tractor, a variety of cabs are available to suit all missions, starting with the AD short, low-roof cab, AT sleeper cab with low or medium-high roof to the largest AS sleeper cab which measures 2.5m wide.

The dashboard has been redesigned; the ignition key has been replaced with a high-mounted slot and simple engine start/stop button.

In redesigning the cab from the ground up, IVECO has taken every opportunity to reinforce cost savings to benefit the operator. The striking new design optimises aerodynamic performance, boosting its predecessor’s already excellent fuel efficiency by up to a further 4%. The new 5-slat grille along with careful integration of air deflectors, door extensions, flush-fitting headlights and relocation of the parking cooler from the roof to under the front facia are just a handful of features that have contributed to a 12% reduction in drag coefficient.

Also contributing to that all-important total cost of ownership are design features such as the three-piece bumper that dramatically reduces repair costs, as only the affected segment need be replaced in the event of damage.

The distinctive new one-piece headlights feature LED technology for the daytime running lights (DRL) and direction indicators with halogen dipped, driving and fog lights as standard.

The new IVECO S-WAY features a host of IVECO ON services enabled by fitment of an advanced connectivity box. Fitted as part of the standard-fit Smart Pack, it runs off a service platform co-developed with Microsoft. Provision of safe data management is the backbone of multiple value-added services, processing and exchanging data in real time. Operators and drivers can remain connected to the vehicle on their mobile device or PC through the user-friendly IVECO ON portal and/or app.

Advanced connectivity has also been developed to help logistics operators maximise vehicle uptime, providing a consistent and predictive service with IVECO ON, strengthening the low TCO proposition. It also unlocks a new modular offer of premium personalised services, including professional fuel advising, fleet management and maintenance, to optimise the fleet’s performance and efficiency.

Through a connection to the IVECO network and the European Control Centre, the new IVECO S-WAY can communicate early warnings, sparking a response that can include remote diagnostics, over-the-air updates or preventative maintenance bookings. Should the need arise, a driver is able to summon the 24/7 support of IVECO Assistance Non-stop via their smartphone app, utilising automatic geolocation technology to precisely locate the vehicle.

All IVECO S-WAYs get two years/130,000km protection through the top-level Elements 3XL repair and maintenance pack. The vehicles can adapt their servicing requirements on an individual basis dependent on their use, IVECO says.

The new IVECO S-WAY builds on the outstanding sustainable performance of the brand’s heavy line, achieving further reductions in PM, NOx and CO2 emissions. True to the brands values, it combines low TCO with low emissions. This is achieved with the

The S-WAY comes with IVECO’s exclusive HI-SCR exhaust aftertreatment system to reduce emissions, as well as Smart EGR and 12-speed HI-TRONIX automated transmission. The gearbox is further enhanced by IVECO HI-CRUISE, the GPS-based predictive drive system that monitors the road ahead to ensure the correct gear is always engaged.

Conventional diesel power is provided by a proven range of IVECO/FPT-developed Euro VI/D-compliant inline-six-cylinder engines. The 8.7-litre CURSOR 9 offers 325, 355 and 395bhp and up to 1,700Nm of torque. The mid-range 11.1-litre CURSOR 11 gives 414, 454 and 473bhp with 2,000 to 2,300Nm of torque, while the range-topping 12.9-litre CURSOR 13 gives 503 to 562bhp with a hefty 2,300-2,500Nm.

A natural gas variant is available as well. IVECO claims to be the only manufacturer to offer a 100% natural gas-powered vehicle in 6x2 configuration. Additionally the IVECO S-WAY Natural Power is the only LNG (liquefied natural gas) truck offering a range of up to 1,600km. The Natural Power CURSOR range is offered in two capacities, a 266, 335 and 395bhp CURSOR 9 8.7-litre inline-six as well as the 12.9-litre CURSOR 13, producing 454bhp and 2,000Nm. Both units can run solely on liquefied or compressed natural gas, or a combination of both.
