Constant reduction in cost, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Reduction of pollutant emissions and noise pollution. Strengthening of road safety and supporting technologies. Here are the guidelines of Iveco Italy for a more sustainable mobility. He explained them Andrea Bucci, General Manager of Iveco Italy, a company that has been involved in freight and public transport for years and not only in Italy.

Iveco Italia is one of the sponsors of MobilityTech Milan 2012, scheduled for 22 and 23 October.

1) What is your approach to sustainable mobility?

Our approach is based on three fundamental pillars that we apply from the very early stages of research and development to the production of all our vehicles. First of all, we aim to constantly reduce the total cost of ownership, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Another commitment is the abatement of pollutant emissions and noise pollution. Our third pillar is the enhancement of road safety and supporting technologies.

The new STRALIS Hi-Way Euro V and Euro VI, Iveco's heavy range vehicle, just launched on the market, is the demonstration of all this, and has also conquered the "International Truck of the Year 2013"As" the best contribution to the efficiency of the road transport sector, in terms of reduced consumption, safety, driveability, comfort and reduced environmental impact ". The main features of the new STRALIS Hi-Way are the reduction of the total cost of ownership (TCO), up to 4%, and the Hi-eSCR catalytic reduction system, which leads it to comply with the limits imposed by Euro VI regulation, reducing nitrogen oxide levels by over 95%.

2) Are you studying fully electric vehicles? What difficulties are there and how will those proposed by you be?

In fact, the development and construction of the first electric Daily dates back to 1986 and today Iveco offers a New electric Daily ideal for short range missions and door to door deliveries especially in LEZ (Low Emission Zone).

Electric propulsion has advantages for purely urban uses, both of a technical and economic nature: the engine is quieter and cleaner, the operating costs are contained.

The challenges still to be faced for the wider deployment of electric commercial vehicles are reducing the cost of the asset, further improving battery technology and reducing charging times. These challenges cannot be overcome without defined and implemented support policies at the EU and individual member state level.

3) Iveco also invests heavily in vehicles with low environmental impact, with fuel enginesalternative: which vehicles do you offer?

Our vehicles they are already today compatible with biomethane, one of the renewable energy sources with the best credentials in terms of reducing CO2 emissions and which represents the most effective and immediately available technological choice for solving pollution problems in urban areas and for reducing CO2 emissions. In particular, methane generates very low polluting emissions compared to Euro VI diesel engines (60% less NOx and 70% reduction in particulate emissions), reduces CO2 emissions by 23% compared to petrol operation and produces a consumption savings of approximately 38% per kg transported.

4) What goals do you set for freight transport?

We aim to offer different technologies able to reconcile different needs with the collective need for sustainability of road transport. This is why we work for the continuous improvement of efficiency of our vehicles with diesel engines, with the introduction of new technologies for efficient combustion. In addition, to encourage the purchase of the electric version of the light commercial vehicle, we have introduced financing packages.

After the experiments conducted, including for medium-distance transport, we moved on to the marketing of hybrid vehicles: the latest Iveco generation allows fuel savings of up to 30% in urban areas, with the relative reduction of CO2 emissions.

On the preventive safety front, automatic emergency braking and driver support systems will soon be introduced on trucks, while we are working on developing sensors that will enable even more sophisticated functions, such as monitoring of the driver's alert status.

5) What products do you offer for freight transport?

Since its inception, Iveco has pursued its commitment to safe, ecological and efficient mobility, developing technological solutions that respect the environment and mankind for more than thirty years. It is the only manufacturer to offer both diesel and methane ecological engines for all missions and in all ranges.

Iveco was the first full-liner of industrial vehicles to invest heavily in methane, developing engines with specific components and tuning optimized for CNG. From light range on-road and off-road vehicles (Daily), to medium vehicles (Eurocargo), to heavy vehicles (Stralis) and special vehicles for civil protection, law enforcement and firefighters. All products are also offered with engines EEV (Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle).

6) What about public transport?

Iveco Irisbus offers a complete range of means for transporting people: urban and interurban scheduled buses, touring and coaches and minibuses.

In collaboration with some international customers, we have developed theCitelis city bus with the diesel-electric serial hybrid drive system. This type of traction is ideal for passenger transport in urban areas. Depending on the conditions of use, the hybrid propulsion makes it possible to obtain a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 37% and CO2 emissions from 21 to 42 tons per year (over 50,000 km / year and depending on the length of the vehicle) compared to a traditional vehicle. In addition, there is a 50% reduction in NOx emissions.

The Magelys Pro was recently launched, the latest addition to the Gran Turismo buses, a vehicle that combines great comfort with the most complete range of safety devices in its segment and guarantees operators very competitive operating costs.

7) Which cities have already adopted them and with which user responses, pollution and expenses?

In the passenger transport sector, Iveco is progressively expanding its activities worldwide, annually marketing around eight thousand units in over 40 countries and in more than 70 European cities. In April, Iveco obtained a record order for diesel-electric hybrid buses: with 102 vehicles, 41 standard and 61 articulated buses, the city of Dijon, France, formalized the largest hybrid bus order ever registered in Europe until till today. There are also new orders for vehicles for the cities of Rouen, Annecy, Dijon and Bordeaux. Also in France, in Orleans, a partnership was started with Keolis for the use of a 12-meter hybrid bus for three years.

In Canada, moreover, the STM (Société de Transport de Montréal) and the RTL (Réseau de Transport de Longueuil) will test for a few months on their urban networkarticulated bus Citelis hybrid from 18 meters. Some hybrid Citelis are also currently being tested at other European operators, such as in Vienna in Austria.
