CNH Industrial Village hosts an important institutional visit

At CNH Industrial Village of Turin, our company hosted Mr. Giovanni La Via, Member of the European Parliament and also Chairman of the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety of the European Parliament.

The visit was an opportunity to share with Mr. La Via the CNH Industrial products, with the peculiarities and the complexity of the different brands, and to highlight technical and regulatory challenges we face over the years ahead. During the visit, the main Europian matters, which currently have most impact on both sectors, on-road and off-road, were discussed.

During the meeting, conducted in cooperation with FCA, Mr. La Via had the opportunity to acquire relevant information on the reliability, versatility and safety of these solutions, thanks to the test drive of a few CNH Industrial products, such as the New Holland Ag T6.175 tractor, the Iveco Daily vehicle powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) and the Stralis fuelled by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

Benefits in terms of energy efficiency of the “DICIOTTO” project were also presented, an effective and innovative project – launched by ANFIA - which responds to the need to reduce consumption, CO2 emissions and congestion on the roads, increasing productivity thanks to the use of articulated trucks up to 18 meters. Iveco is the project’s promoter which is experienced in certain European countries today.
