At the IAA Commercial Vehicles show in Hannover, Iveco has unveiled the Vision Concept, a design study of a commercial vehicle that explores solutions and for cargo management and low environmental impact.


Based on the new Daily commercial vehicle – which has recently won the “Van of the year 2015” award – the Iveco Vision Concept was designed for door-to-door delivery missions.

The exterior design was centered around the idea of “total visibility” and features large glazed surfaces – including a panoramic roof and the “see-through” front pillars – and LED headlights.

The cabin features an adaptive Human/Machine Interface and is equipped with a tablet which communicates with the on-board electronics. A rear camera sight is displayed on a panoramic screen on top of the windshield.

The Iveco Vision also introduces a load management system based on a series of sensors which identify the goods and then indicate the correct positioning of these within the vehicle interior, triggering containment devices which prevent the movement of larger packages.

Beside protecting valuable goods from damage, improved space management also makes loading and unloading faster.

The powertrain features the Dual Energy system, a technology which allows for the use of two different types of traction – one is exclusively electric, ensuring zero local emissions and low noise levels, and the other is hybrid (thermoelectric) and suitable for longer journeys and for extra-urban missions, reducing consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 25%.

In this architecture, a specific transfer unit couples the electric motor with the transmission shafts enabling to have an hybrid that is also an adaptive traction system with real-time energy management.

Based on mission-related elements, the vehicle self-adapts to the most suitable traction: the hybrid mode improves commercial speed and autonomy range on intercity routes; while the electric mode allows unrestricted, no-emission mobility in metropolitan areas.

Technical partners of the project included Bosch, Dainese, Brembo, Streparava, Arcelor Mittal, CRF, Denso, FPT, Sole, Trucklite, Xperion, ZF – for the Dual Energy Chassis – plus Comftech, Essence and ST Microelectronics.
