Melbourne manufactured Stralis X-Way en route to dealerships

The first locally produced group of Stralis X-Way models have rolled from the manufacturing facility to dealerships across Australia.

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, IVECO, announced its Euro 6 emissions friendly heavy duty truck in prime mover and rigid variants had been extensively tested and developed for Australian conditions ahead of its public unveiling at last week's Brisbane Truck Show.

New technology that includes the most comprehensive safety suite yet offered by IVECO, includes an Electronic Braking System (EBS), Brake Assistance System (BAS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hill Holder, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) and daytime running lights as standard.

Optional equipment such as a hydraulic retarder, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Driver Attention Support (DAS), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Bi-Xenon headlamps can also be specified.

The Melbourne factory will allow IVECO customers greater input on special needs specifications to suit the nuances of their end application.

Prime mover models have been rated for a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of 25 tonnes are offered in 6x4 AD/AT.

The rigid variants of the Stralis X-Way come in 6x4 AS, 6x4 AD/AT, 8x4 AD/AT and 8x4 AS and range between 25 and 30 tonnes GVM.

Cabin options include a ‘Day’, ‘Sleeper’ and ‘Active Space Sleeper'.

Powered by Euro 6 compliant IVECO Cursor 9, 11 and 13 common rail engines that range between 310 hp and 1300 Nm for the entry level Cursor 9 to 510 hp and 2300 Nm for the Cursor 13, the Stralis X-Way models have been paired with a new HiTroniX automated transmission and a 12-speed, direct drive unit for fast gear changes.

IVECO ANZ, SEA and Japan Product Manager, Marco Quaranta said the company is a global leader in low emission technologies and at the Stralis like its other offerings at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show showcased the low emission capabilities of the new model range.

“Increasingly our customers both in the private and government sectors, are requesting vehicles that meet stringent environmental standards, even before being officially mandated through legislation," he said.

“IVECO is very pleased to be able to provide an extensive Euro 6 product offering across vans,
minibuses and its light, medium and heavy duty truck ranges,” said Quaranta.

Additional stock will arrive at dealerships in the coming weeks to fulfill what the company has called a successful forward-order program amid growing buyer interest in the new model range.
