Hyundai to develop new electric van for Iveco

Hyundai Motor Company and Iveco Group have signed a supply agreement for a new Iveco-badged all-electric light commercial vehicle for Europe, based on Hyundai’s Global eLCV platform.

The new vehicle will join Iveco Group’s electric light commercial vehicle lineup, alongside the Iveco Daily.

The Iveco-badged vehicle will be the first export model to apply Hyundai’s new all-electric Light Commercial Vehicle (eLCV) platform, a dedicated EV platform made for commercial vehicles ranging from GVW 2.5 tons to 3.5 tons.

The platform features Hyundai’s latest technology for next generation BEVs with a low-floor design that allows enhanced usability for cargo loading and carrying, designed to fit the emerging needs of future electrified Purpose Built Vehicles in the market.

Under the partnership, Hyundai will manufacture and supply the Iveco-badged chassis cab for the European market and Iveco Group will locally customise and distribute the complete vehicles exclusively through its sales channels.

The new vehicle will be launched this September at the IAA Transportation show in Hannover, Germany.
