IAA Motor Show Hanover
Iveco will be taking part in the 65th running of the International Motor Show of Commercial Vehicles (IAA) in Hanover from 25 September to 2 October 2014. The company will be introducing a number of innovations in what has been confirmed as the most important international showcase for the commercial vehicle sector. On a stand covering more than 2,500 square metres, Iveco will provide visitors with a complete display of its range, from light commercial vehicles to heavy on-road and off-road vehicles, buses and dedicated quarry-construction site vehicles.
At the centre of the stand there will be a totem showing the milestones in the history of Iveco, starting in 1864 when the Magirus brand was created, which this year will celebrate its 150th anniversary, moving onto the birth of Iveco in 1975 and covering a long history which has made the brands of
CNH Industrial famous all over the world.
The real star of the Iveco stand will be the New Daily, the third generation of the light commercial vehicle which after its international press launch at the beginning of June, will make its public show debut in front of a large international audience. New Daily is a completely renewed vehicle which presents itself with a load volume efficiency at the top of its category, best-in-class for volume and capacity, car-like comfort, plus driveability and fuel consumption further optimised. While 80% of components have been redesigned, the New Daily has preserved its classic ladder frame chassis structure, a part of its DNA and a feature which ensures strength, versatility and duration over time as well as maximum bodybuilding flexibility on chassis cab models.
In the New Daily area, as well as the vehicle itself, technological innovation will play a major role with the F1C engine, the new HI-MATIC gearbox and the new Quad Leaf suspension.
A major innovation is the new HI-MATIC 8-speed automatic transmission that establishes high standards of flexibility, efficiency and fuel economy, ensuring maximum travel comfort. HI-MATIC changes quicker and more precisely than an expert driver, needing less than 200 milliseconds for a
gear shift when greater acceleration is required.
