Iveco Trucks New Zealand is enjoying its best year ever in New Zealand history, and this is only the beginning, claims General Manager Ian Walker.

Auckland, 17 October 2016

September registrations released by the MIA saw IVECO commercial vehicles up a staggering 400% month on month compared to 2015. In the first 9 months of 2016 IVECO has retailed a huge 67% more vans and trucks than the same period last year, making it the fastest growing brand in the country.

“The results for the brand have been very encouraging, and show that we are giving customers what they want,” says Walker. “We have put a lot of effort into putting many dedicated resources into developing the right product offering to meet our customer’s requirements and reaching out to the market to explain how our vehicles and our services can help their businesses. It has been a great team effort and this has meant expansion in many ways, including new jobs”.

“In the last 18 months IVECO has focused its product offering to be exactly what the Kiwi van and truck buyer is looking for. We are completely renewing our entire product offering with first-class vehicles. Our new ranges are winning many prestigious awards, like the Daily’s International Van of the Year 2015 title or the Eurocargo’s Truck of the Year 2016. These recognitions, awarded by industry experts, are testament to our commitment to quality. Our European and Australian stables offer far more products than what traditionally has been offered in New Zealand. The new addition to our line-up is the fabulous Trakker 6x4 bulk cartage truck that we will launch in the next few weeks and proudly display at T.H.E. EXPO 2017 in Hamilton, where we have taken a significant investment to show off our products.”

In the same time period IVECO have launched to the 3.5T GVM market the multi-award winning New Daily, with great success to both retail and fleet operators. It has expanded and strengthened its dealer network to be closer to the customer and raise the level of sales and service support. It has also introduced several new packages specifically developed for IVECO customers, such as free servicing on Daily, competitive repair and maintenance programs on all trucks, IVECO Assist Roadside assistance and finance packages. Iveco has also expanded its sales force and will shortly be announcing a multi-million dollar investment into a new location in Auckland.

“We now have good established dealers that want to represent us as service and parts dealers and we will shortly be rolling our phase 2 of our dealer network program including brand signage around the country. IVECO Trucks New Zealand is here for the long haul (excuse the pun) and operators will be seeing a lot more of our vehicles on our roads, that’s for sure”.
