The name Iveco first appeared in 1975 after a merger of Italian, French and German brands. Its production plants are in Europe, Brazil, Russia, Australia, Africa, Argentina and China, and it has approximately 5,000 points of sales and service in over 160 countries.
With over 28,000 employees, Iveco is present in all five continents: 27 plants located in 16 countries around the world manufacture vehicles with top level technologies developed in 6 research centres. Outside of Europe, the company operates in China, Russia, Australia and Latin America. An extensive after-sales service network guarantees our support in all geographic areas where an Iveco vehicle is at work.
The joint venture of Iveco, FPT Industrial and Nikola will produce electric and fuel cell trucks for the European market at Iveco’s headquarters in the German city of Ulm. The first trucks will roll off the assembly lines next year.
Nikola Tre, a truck designed for the European market, was presented in December 2019. Iveco, FPT Industrial and Nikola announced last week that the large electric vehicle would be made in Ulm, which is the home of the IVECO’s chassis engineering hub. The joint venture partners will invest 40 million euros in the modernization of the factory.
“The decision to build the Nikola TRE in Ulm – a centre of heavy-duty truck engineering excellence – underscores the site’s strategic location at the heart of Germany’s fuel cell technology cluster.”
