In a world premiere, IVECO BUS unveils its new identity, which symbolizes the capacity for innovation and renewal of this pioneering brand. The new logo maintains the strong personality of the original brand, born in 1975, which is reinterpreted in a more open and dynamic design with the new “energy blue” colour flash in the letter E
The energy of the new identity is also reflected in a redesign of the front end of the vehicles, which features full LED lights, a faired protection of battery on the roof for electric versions, and the brand’s signature with the new IVECO logo.
The new front face design also features the smart integration of the new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) devices, which comply with the GSR (General Safety Regulation) regulation, ahead of its coming into force in July 2024.
Visual and audible alerts related to new ADAS functionalities are integrated into the dashboard, which features a new interface that facilitates navigation of the menu. The new ADAS devices on IVECO BUS vehicles include: MOIS (Moving Off Info System), ISA (Intelligent Speed Assist), BSIS (Blind Spot Info System), TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring), REV (Reversing Detection), ESS (Emergency Stop Signal), DDAW (Driver Drowsiness Attention Warning), ALC (Alcohol Interlock Preparation) and Cyber security.
ADAS specific devices will be available on every delivery from first quarter 2024.
