Iveco’s Crossway interurban bus range has broken a new production record for the company as the 60,000th vehicle rolled off the assembly line, a milestone which the manufacturer says is testament to the success of the internationally recognised range, which has collected multiple awards over the years. Since its launch in 2006, the Crossway has been made available in multiple variants, including 10.8, 12, 13 and 14.5 metre options, and with a wide choice of energy including biogas, hybrid or electric propulsion to meet varying customer needs. It is manufactured at the firm’s Vysoke Myto plant in the Czech Republic, which it says is the world’s largest bus manufacturing plant.

“With this new record of 60,000 units produced, our Crossway confirms its leading position in the Intercity segment. With its extensive choice of configurations and multiple available alternative energies, the Crossway range is uniquely capable of meeting the specific requirements of a wide variety of transport operations. This accounts for its continued success as the best-selling intercity bus in Europe and its appeal in markets on other continents,” said Stéphane Espinasse, Head of Iveco Bus Sales, Operations and Product Management.
