Iveco has signed an MoU with Enel X to develop e-mobility for commercial vehicles in Europe.
The truck manufacturer will work with Enel X on a number of different areas of future transport.

The two companies will assess how Iveco electric trucks can support the transition of Enel’s fleet to zero emission vehicles.
In addition, they will examining new joint opportunities in other transport segments.
The collaboration also aims to develop a joint offer addressing the e-mobility of commercial fleets.

“We are confident that this will create opportunities to further accelerate the energy transition we are driving.”
