Iveco launches its latest heavy truck – Stralis Hi-Way

Turin, Italy: Iveco has launched launches the Stralis Hi-Way, the next generation of the company’s heavy-duty vehicle range.

Alessandro Mortali, senior vice president heavy range, Iveco, said: “The new Stralis maximises savings in all key cost areas. As a result, the total cost of ownership for the ten most common vehicle missions decreases by up to 4%”.

Enzo Gioachin, senior vice president sales and marketing, Iveco, said: “The current economic situation is among the most critical our industry ever faced. With the launch of the new Stralis, we are countering the negative trend. Our package offers the right combination of innovation, enhanced services, and direct cost advantages to our customers”.

The Stralis Hi-Way uses new engine technology, including the patented HI-eSCR developed by FPT Industrial for Euro VI, to meet the latest emission standards while leaving fuel efficiency gains “uncompromised”.

The Hi-Way has a redesigned cab, integrated telematics systems, improved customer service tools, as well as state of the art road safety applications.

The new vehicle generation has undergone extensive quality and reliability audits with over 6m kilometres of durability testing and over 11m kilometres of real-world driving exposure.

The Stralis is made at the Iveco heavy vehicle factory in Madrid, Spain. This plant was recently awarded a silver medal in the prestigious World Class Manufacturing programme, one of the highest scores possible.

New Stralis Hi-Way innovations:

  • The new Stralis comes with Cursor FPT Industrial engines, ensuring low fuel consumption and excellent performance. The unique High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) catalytic reduction system, designed, patented and produced by FPT Industrial, makes the new Stralis the only heavy vehicle on the market to meet Euro VI emission limits without the use of EGR. This exclusive solution has allowed Iveco to simplify the after-treatment system and to use the same “body-in white” of the existing cab, since with HI-eSCR the engine does not require any additional cooling.
  • HI-eSCR offers Iveco’s customers many advantages, such as a weight reduction, lower fuel consumption and increased durability due to a less complex, yet highly efficient, technology.
  • The carefully redesigned Stralis Hi-Way cab with improved ergonomics and comfort is the product of close cooperation with dealers and customers. The external restyling of the cab has focused on improving vehicle aerodynamics and therefore fuel efficiency, and features a new central grille and redesigned “air deflectors” and a new bumper dam design, among others.
  • Offering an all-round transport services solution for all operations and fleet management needs, the new Stralisadds to the already broad range an offer with the unique “Driving Style Evaluation” function; Ivecoconnect, an exclusive Iveco system that incorporates in a unique device infotainment, navigation, driving support and fleet management services, and the Iveco connect Fleet function for fleet management.
  • The Stralis Hi-Way incorporates the most advanced electronic systems available, such as EBS with the Brake Assistant function, Lane Departure Warning System, ESP, Adaptive Cruise Control, Daytime Running Lights, the new Driver Attention Support function and the Advanced Emergency Braking System.
