Iveco launches hybrid truck


Iveco’s hybrid Eurocargo will make its UK debut at the Low Carbon Vehicle event.

It is powered by a 16-valve, four-cylinder EEV diesel engine with maximum rated power of 180 hp, working in combination with a 60 hp electric motor-generator. 

The truck is available at 12-tonnes or 7.5-tonnes, and uses a diesel-electric parallel hybrid driveline. 

The engine and motor are driven through a six-speed automated gearbox and a lithium-ion battery pack with 1.9 kWh capacity.

Martin Flach, product director at Iveco UK, said: “We have managed to engineer all of the hybrid technology into the Eurocargo with only a 250kg payload deficit over a conventional diesel engine model.”
