The Eurocargo: The truck the city likes

Medium range vehicles are mainly used for missions such as urban distribution and municipal services: this is why IVECO has set performance improvement and fuel consumption reduction as a top priority. With the FPT engines, 15 to 18.5 tonnes of GVW, the Eurotronic and Alison transmissions, the HI-SCR system with passive diesel particulate filter (DPF), and Advanced Driving Assistance Systems such as the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the Eurocargo is the truck the city likes.

The multi-mission truck

More attractive, versatile, efficient and maneuverable than ever: the Eurocargo boasts a new design and functionalities while maintaining and improving the essentials that have made it the reliable, robust and versatile vehicle of choice customers around the globe. In this continuously changing world and increasingly competitive market, the New Eurocargo is the business partner – and companion – for everyone.

IVECO HI-SCR SYSTEM: The most efficient Euro VI technology

IVECO’s exclusive HI-SCR technology is the only emission control system that does not alter the combustion process, because it works through fresh and clean air intake rather than exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). This makes the percentage of particulate so low that there is no need for an active DPF, therefore no forced DPF regeneration is required.
