​Dear business partners, colleagues,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of our newsletter. This is the way we want to bring you regularly the most interesting news from the realm of IVECO BUS and I hope our new e-bulletin will perfectly serve for this purpose.

In this first issue I would like to highlight briefly the exceptional results achieved in 2016. I am very pleased that we were again able to increase our market share in the CEE region, especially in Slovakia where our brand has become the absolute leader with the market share over 53%, in the segment of intercity buses it was more than 69%.

Also in the Czech Republic our brand notched up 40.5% share and has become a leader in this segment. This success was achieved mainly thanks to our Crossway product range being manufactured in Vysoké Mýto, which is the leader not only in Central and Eastern Europe but in the whole continent. This fact has also contributed significantly to notching up the record of 3,885 vehicles made by Iveco Czech Republic per annum (year-on-year + 4.2%).

In addition to the intercity vehicles, I must point up our category of Urbanway city buses where we have also achieved important successes in the field of CNG, and last but not least, our Daily minibuses that are becoming more and more popular for their comfort and driving parameters, not only with our bodymakers but primarily with a wide range of our customers. The proof of that is the minibus Daily Tourys, which was awarded the “International minibus of the year 2017”.

We are indeed very delighted by this success, since it indicates that we will see more and more of vehicles of Iveco BUS brand on our roads.

The aspect of reliability of our buses and customers’ satisfaction are a reflection of the quality and consistency of all IVECO BUS departments and teams which has become an integral part of the entire sales cycle and contributed significantly to the success and value of the IVECO BUS brand both at home and around the world.

I would like to thank all colleagues but especially our customers and business partners without whom we would not be able to achieve the long-lasting success of our company. It is precisely their loyalty and favors that helped us significantly to succeed in attaining our goals and fulfilling our working dreams.

May you find the reading interesting and enjoyable
