Iveco Bus presence in Turkey

Iveco Bus states it has “achieved its targets in the Turkish market thanks to fruitful partnerships and collaborations to strengthen its position as a brand able to provide both complete vehicles and minibus chassis“. The brand has already delivered respectively 10 Crossway to Balıkesir and to Mugla with the support of FSM Demirbaş Otomotiv, the dealer on the territory, that plays a crucial role being close to the customers. 

Almost 2,000 Daily chassis are body-worked each year in Turkey by bodybuilders partners.

On top, thanks to the signature in 2020 of an industrial agreement here in Turkey with Otokar, Iveco Bus has expanded its manufacturing capabilities to produce its Crossway range locally and thus support its continued growth. The Crossway, with a record production of more than 65,000 units, recently entered the Turkish market

Being 10, 12 or 13m long, the XTL compatible Crossway models can be powered either with a Euro VI-e Tector 7 or the Cursor 9 engine and offer the choice between ZF and VOITH gearboxes for great driving comfort and optimized performance in terms of fuel efficiency. 

The vehicle’s passive safety has been strengthened with front collision mitigation to ECE R29.03 regulation certified by TÜV Sud. 

Iveco Bus at Busworld Turkey: E-Way, and Evadys

The Iveco Bus Evadys is a multipurpose vehicle designed to accomplish any mission from the shuttle bus to the excursion or scheduled lines bus. It is equipped with the 400 HP Cursor 9 engine, whose environmental performance can be further improved by using renewable fuels. The Evady benefits from all the step E novelties outlined for the Crossway. It builds on a versatility in terms of lengths (12 and 12.96 m), gearboxes (ZF Ecolife 2 – VOITH Diwa NXT), doors layouts (three types), that customers can specify to match very precisely their specific requirements. Multiple seats layouts are possible, for example, 63 seats capacity on one side, 3GBK German standard on the other side. 

Evadys offers up to 12 m3 luggage capacity, with higher entrance height for luggage loading (8.6 on the vehicle displayed at the stand).

Iveco Bus electromobility solutions is represented on the booth by a 12-meter-long E-WAY model. 

The E-WAY portfolio includes models available in four lengths (9.5m, 10.7m, 12m and 18m), and three charging modes: charging at the depot is now also available on articulated versions as well as opportunity charging via bottom-up pantograph on 12-m long versions. In addition, the 12- or 18-meter-long models of the E-WAY is also available as a Bus Rapid Transit system (BRT version), named LINIUM. 

Bringing e-mobility outside of Europe: the Streetway Elec

To also meet the different requirements of targeted markets in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Iveco Bus extended last year its electromobility offering with a new battery-electric city bus: the Streetway Elec, built in Otokar’s factory. Compliant with the most widespread European product and safety standards, this 12-metre-long electric city bus is designed for all-day use with night-time recharging at the depot. It can accommodate more than 90 passengers. 

The entire electromobility offering benefit from the 69kWh NMC battery pack assembled by FPT Industrial. The modular energy storage architecture offers a choice of various combinations of battery packs layouts between the roof and the rear to maximize passenger capacity based on expected range and charging strategy. 

The newly-launched division Energy Mobility Solutions aims to support the customers on their journey to e-mobility, advising on the best energy solution for the operation and coordinating complex infrastructure projects. On top of zero-emission buses, it is a complete ecosystem that begins with the simulation all the way to the bus, includes the battery type and technology, the associated charging solutions, as well as financial services and telematics. This business model approach enables to be flexible in tailoring solutions to perfectly fit the customer’s application and offer the best trade-off on Total Cost of Ownership.
