The important award was presented at the gala evening of the 64th edition of the Hanover International Motor Show, the largest commercial and industrial vehicle show in Europe.
“We are proud of this award. The new STRALIS sets a benchmark in efficiency, quality and value for the customer. The vehicle is a true showcase of our revamped company strategy of being close to our customers, delivering excellent products”, said Alfredo Altavilla, Iveco CEO, receiving the award. With a winning score of 138 votes, the new Italian heavy-duty, long-haul truck fought off the strong challenge posed by Mercedes-Benz’s Antos heavy-duty short-range distribution truck which collected 107 votes. Ford Otosan’s New Cargo finished in the third place, while the all-wheel drive six-tonne Fuso Canter 4×4 was fourth. So Iveco is better than Mercedes-Benz?? Really???
