Iveco Australia is all set to debut its locally-made Euro6 Stralis X-Way at the upcoming Brisbane Truck Show (BTS).

With focus on showcasing its latest Euro 6 emission technologies, the Iveco stand will feature vehicles with Euro 6 engines across its light, medium and heavy duty weight categories, including some that will be on public display in Australia for the first time.

Both a prime mover and a rigid model of the recently-launched Euro 6 Stralis X-Way will be on display at the stand.

As well as benefiting from a range of intelligent active and passive safety features, the Stralis X-Way is equipped with fuel-saving measures including Ecoroll, Ecoswitch and engine anti-idling.

Emission control on the X-Way is also advanced, coming courtesy of Iveco’s unique Hi-eSCR system which does not require driver intervention.

Iveco will also display the all-new, next generation Euro 6 ACCO, which has also been manufactured in Australia.

Still in the midst of extensive in-field development testing prior to launch later this year, the new ACCO will build on the toughness of its predecessor while delivering new levels of comfort and safety never before experienced in an ACCO, Iveco says.

Also on display will be a 6x4 model with Bucher compactor body and an 8x4 featuring a Hiab hooklift body.

Representing Iveco’s medium duty range is a Euro 6 Eurocargo equipped with an INNOV8 attenuator body, while at the lighter end of the product offering is the Daily 70C van with 7 tonne GVM, 19.6m³ volume and Euro 6 engine.

Iveco will also preview a prototype new version of its Daily 4x4 with increased GVM capabilities of up to 7 tonnes and other enhancements including availability of Iveco’s Hi-Matic, 8-speed full automatic transmission.

For those interested in bonneted, North American-style trucks, an International ProStar prime mover model will also be on show.

Iveco Australia marketing manager Darren Swenson says this year’s stand will hold true to the brand’s global positioning to be ‘Your Partner for Sustainable Transport’.

"Iveco is very proud to be a global leader in low emission technologies and at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show, our low emission capabilities will be strongly displayed and promoted," Swenson says.

"Increasingly our customers both in the private and government sectors, are requesting vehicles that meet stringent environmental standards, even before being officially mandated through legislation.

"Iveco is very pleased to be able to provide an extensive Euro 6 product offering across vans, minibuses and its light, medium and heavy duty truck ranges."

Iveco and International will be staged at stand 47 in Hall 1 on the foyer level of the BTS.
