On April 19, Iveco Bus announced that it is expanding the CROSSWAY intercity bus range with hybrid technology. The CROSSWAY Hybrid is compatible with XTL (X-To-Liquid) renewable fuels and biomethane. Available in 10.7, 12, and 13-meter lengths, it features a new front end with full LED lights, ADAS devices, and the updated IVECO logo.

The hybrid system pairs a Euro VI Step E compliant CURSOR 9 engine with a Voith DIWA NXT gearbox and a 35 kW peak electrical recovery motor. The setup significantly reduces fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. The electrical motor, mounted on the roof with a high-energy LTO battery, assists the engine during start-up and energy recovery phases.

The new CROSSWAY Hybrid meets the upcoming GSR safety regulations effective from July 2024. Manufactured in Vysoké Myto, Czech Republic, the CROSSWAY Hybrid is available for orders with deliveries starting in Spain next July 2024.

With this addition, Iveco Bus offers a multi-energy lineup including CROSSWAY POP & LINE with XTL or biomethane compatible TECTOR 7 or CURSOR 9 engine, CROSSWAY CNG/ CNG hybrid POP & LINE compatible CURSOR 9 engine, and CROSSWAY B100 POP & LINE, all Euro VI Step E compliant with TECTOR 7 engine.

On April 10, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) announced that CEOs of major European automotive companies (Renault Group, DAF Trucks, Iveco Group, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Scania, and others) met with the EU Commissioner for Climate Action to discuss the sector's green transition. They aim to maintain production in Europe amidst global competition, rising costs, and evolving EV market. Europe must enhance competitiveness and strengthen the business case for green and digital transformation.

The roundtable, committed to by the EU Commissioner, aimed to identify barriers to implementing the Green Deal. Participants stressed the urgency of deploying zero-emission trucks and buses by 2040, focusing on battery-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles. Technology neutrality is crucial, with the recognition that internal combustion engines will persist in heavy-duty transport.

However, achieving carbon dioxide reduction targets is challenging due to lacking infrastructure like charging stations and a supportive carbon pricing framework. The sector urges policymakers to take ambitious action to address these concerns.

On April 4, CGT announced that IRMA (Regional Institute of Mediation and Arbitration) aimed to resume negotiations for the collective agreement between the Iveco Madrid factory's Works Committee (UGT, CGT and CCOO) and the company in a meeting on March 22, 2024. However, negotiations remain stalled due to the company's unsatisfactory proposal, prompting criticism from the Committee representing 3,000 workers.

Despite four meetings, Iveco Madrid failed to make progress on key worker issues. At the IRMA meeting, the company refused to negotiate amidst ongoing strike calls, ignoring staff demands voiced in two massive assemblies on March 19, 2024.

The Works Committee proposed reactivating negotiations and withdrawing strike calls, contingent on genuine negotiation efforts from the company. Unfortunately, the company showed no willingness to negotiate. The RLPT (Legal Representation of Workers), representing workers, presented basic points agreed upon by the Works Committee, addressing worker demands such as CPI Clause, purchasing power recovery, salary recovery, reduced summer hours, flexible working hours, and others.

Despite Iveco's significant profits in 2023, it rejects these demands, prompting workers at the Iveco Madrid plant to announce strike days in April 2024 from 5th, 6th, 10th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 27th, 29th, and 30th, during 8 hours per shift.
