Iveco launches new S-Way

Iveco has launched its new S-Way truck with a redesigned cab, enhanced connectivity and greater fuel and emissions efficiency.

The S-Way is the first truck in Iveco’s new Way heavy range and is a replacement for the Stralis.

The new cab has been designed to be spacious with a layout that combines functionality with comfort. The cab also has a reinforced structure (ECE R29.03 cab crash compliant) and improved visibility all around.

The new cab has also been designed to be more aerodynamic, which can increase fuel efficiency by 4%, according to the company. However, it has gone with outside wing mirrors, rather than following the Mercedes-Benz Actros by having them on the inside via camera screens.

There are other touches, such as a multi-piece bumper, which means that in the event of damage, only the affected part needs to be replaced.

The new Iveco S-Way also has further reductions in PM, NOx and CO2 emissions compared to the Stralis. Iveco says this is achieved with the exclusive HI-SCR after-treatment system and through fuel efficiency resulting from the advanced engine technology and Hi-Tronix transmission, and the multiple fuel-saving solutions such as the Smart EGR.

For logistics operators wishing to run a ‘green’ fleet, the Iveco S-Way Natural Power remains the only LNG truck offering a range of up to 1,600km for long haul work with 460hp. With this vehicle, they will benefit from all the advantages of natural gas, which delivers particulate matter emissions 99% lower than diesel, 90% less NO2 and, with biomethane, CO2 is 95% lower, near zero.

The new S-Way is also much more connected than its predecessor, thanks to a new, advanced Connectivity Box, which Iveco describe as a “game-changer” as it 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. Owners and drivers are constantly connected with the vehicle on their mobile device or PC through the MyIVECO portal and app.

The S-Way uses connectivity to provide advanced driver assistance and driving style features combined with services developed to help them operate effortlessly and efficiently, accessed through the MyIVECO EASY Way App.

Its advanced connectivity also aims to help logistics operators by maximising the vehicle’s uptime, providing a consistent and predictive service with My IVECO Way Solutions. There is also a new modular offer of premium personalised services, including professional fuel advising, fleet management and maintenance, to optimise the fleet’s performance and efficiency.

At the launch, Gerrit Marx, Iveco’s president commercial and specialty vehicles, said: “We want to become the easiest-to-work-and-innovate-with truck OEM for our suppliers and customers, while tailoring our vehicles around a driver´s life, which today is more than just the route he travels.

“Sustainability also entails our responsibility to make this job, which is crucial for our society, a more attractive and enjoyable one… which goes beyond just adding leather and wood applications.”
