IVECO stands out as one of the most prominent manufacturers in the Australian market. Renowned for its extensive range of trucks catering to diverse industries, including the Daily Van and Cab Chassis, Acco, Stralis, and X-Way models, IVECO consistently excels as a top contender in their respective categories. Their consistent appearance in top-selling truck statistics reinforces their popularity. Therefore, when IVECO unveils alterations to their manufacturing operations, it inevitably prompts dedicated patrons to ponder the potential implications. How will these changes influence existing vehicles, the acquisition of new IVECO trucks, stock availability, and securing new truck loans?
From the vantage point of a specialized truck lender, Jade Truck Loans tackles the query surrounding the potential impact of IVECO's recent announcements on new truck loans.
Starting from mid-2022, IVECO is making a strategic shift by discontinuing production at its Dandenong manufacturing plant. Instead, the focus will be on the customization of fully imported vehicles to cater specifically to the Australian market. The company's announcement, made on November 24, 2021, by Michael May, the Managing Director of IVECO Australia New Zealand, outlined these changes as integral to the broader global transformation process of the company.
Mr. May unveiled that IVECO is in the process of establishing a Customization and Innovation Centre (CIC), which will mark a pivotal shift towards innovation and tailoring. This center is set to enhance the support provided to both customers and body-builders, streamlining the fitment and design process.
The media release emphasized that IVECO's distinctive value proposition lies in its capability to specialize and customize vehicles to meet market requirements, leveraging the expertise of local engineering. By further enhancing this aspect, the company aims to offer heightened value to customers, expand the CIC's capacity, and broaden the scope of its operations.
Moreover, the announcement indicated that the company would transition to entirely importing its heavy-duty vehicle range from its Spanish manufacturing facility. It's worth noting that the light, medium, and select heavy-duty models are already fully imported.
This transition to fully imported vehicles also facilitates aligning new model releases with the parent company's global plans. As part of this transition, the introduction of the S-Way model in Australia will coincide with the global rollout plan.
Imported models will be specifically tailored to suit the unique conditions in Australia, undergoing rigorous testing to ensure compliance. These changes are projected to be implemented around June 2022.
New Truck Loans for IVECO
As noted by Mr May in the announcement, IVECO currently have many imported vehicles in its range. As finance is readily available for imported and locally built vehicles across multiple makes and models, it would not be expected that there would be any direct impact on truck loans as a result of this shift in IVECO operations.
We offer affordable interest rates for truck loans on the entire range of new IVECO vehicles. This encompasses vans, light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks, as well as off-road models.
