After unveiling the Crossway Low Entry Hybrid in late 2022 (also available in battery-electric version), Iveco Bus is now updating the range with the mild hybrid version of the Crossway normal floor intercity bus. It’s available in 3 lengths: 10.7, 12, 13 meters, POP and LINE versions. It will be at the beginning available in 12 and 13 meters powered by natural gas, biomethane-compatible. The new model is already available for orders, with the first units to be delivered in Spain next July, Iveco Group says.

The Crossway Hybrid is in Vysoké Myto, Czech Republic, and features the new front end that introduces full LED lights, ADAS devices and the brand’s identity with the new Iveco logo.

Iveco Crossway Hybrid is ready

The hybrid technology is available with the Voith DIWA NXT gearbox combined with a 35 kW peak electrical recovery motor. The motor acts as a starter and generator to recover the kinetic energy accumulated during the deceleration and braking phases with a high-energy LTO battery (48 V) mounted on the roof. The electric motor supports the Cursor 9 engine during the starting phases.

The Crossway Hybrid features a new front-end design that incorporates the new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in compliance with the upcoming GSR (General Safety Regulation), which is scheduled to come into force in July 2024.

Giorgio Zino, Head of Iveco Bus Europe Commercial Operations said: “The introduction of our hybrid technology to our Crossway normal floor will enable transport operators to benefit from a significant reduction in energy costs and CO2emissions compared to internal combustion models. It is a concrete alternative available to customers. With this addition, we further strengthen our brand’s ability to provide the widest sustainable offering on the market, confirming our strategy to drive the energy transition with a mix of technologies and consolidating our leadership as one of the key players in sustainable mobility in Europe”.
