Hendy Iveco are getting ready to host a special two day truck stop event on the 4th and 5th March at Rownhams Services (M27, J3-4), during which drivers will be able to experience the ultimate test drive in the new Stralis Hi-Way.
“The purpose of the two day event at Rownhams Services is to offer potential buyers and drivers the opportunity to appreciate the unique ‘Driving Style Evaluation’ function, fuel economy, safety and drive-ability of the new Stralis,” comments Alastair Kidd, Hendy Iveco Franchise Director.
“During the two day event, Stralis Hi-Way experts from Hendy and Iveco will be available to take interested parties on test drives, putting it through its paces and demonstrating its new features. Anyone interested in finding out more about the new Stralis Hi-Way or wanting to take a test drive is welcome to join Hendy at the Rownhams services on the 4th and 5th March,” adds Kidd.
The main features of the new STRALIS Hi-Way are the significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and the proprietary catalytic reduction system HI-eSCR, developed by FPT Industrial.
Combining the quality of the product with a range of integrated services, including programmed assistance, fleet management and driver training for economical driving, the new STRALIS can achieve a reduction in TCO of up to 4% on an international mission with a tractor STRALIS Hi-Way over an average distance of 130,000 kilometers a year, for four years.
The new STRALIS is equipped with Cursor FPT Industrial engines, ensuring low fuel consumption and excellent performance. The unique High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) catalytic reduction system, designed, patented and produced by FPT Industrial, makes the new STRALIS the only heavy vehicle on the market to meet Euro VI emission limits without the use of EGR. The FPT Industrial High Efficiency SCR system reduces nitrogen oxide levels by over 95%. The after-treatment technology of FPT Industrial for Euro VI vehicles is unique and exclusive, since it meets the strict limits for nitrogen oxide emissions, without increasing fuel consumption.
The STRALIS Hi-Way comes, in addition, with a thoroughly redesigned cabin. The improved ergonomics and comfort are the product of close cooperation with dealers and customers. The external restyling of the cab has focused on improving vehicle aerodynamics and therefore fuel efficiency, and features a new central grille and redesigned “air deflectors” and a new bumper dam design, among others.
To improve driver performance, the new STRALIS adds to the already broad range an offer with the unique "Driving Style Evaluation" function, an instrument that allows the driver to improve driving behaviour in real time. Additionally, if connected to the IVECONNECT FLEET system, this program allows the fleet manager to remotely assess the performance of each individual driver.
The Hendy Iveco team will be at Rownhams services on the 4th March between 2pm and 9pm, as well as on the 5th March between 6am and 2pm, to guide you through the “International Truck of the Year” the Iveco Stralis Hi-Way.
