Yesterday, Iveco opened the doors of its e-powertrain plant in Turin. This is the company’s first-ever electrification-centered manufacturing facility. Furthermore, the 15,000 m2 plant is completely carbon neutral.
The plant runs on solar and wind energy, with the large roof area being covered in solar panels. Iveco has also planted 100 plants at the facility with an expected CO2 absorption of 7 tons per year. This green facility is set to produce over 20,000 battery packs and e-axles annually.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Iveco is taking its sustainability mission seriously. Producing electric vehicles is the first step, but doing so carbon-neutral is quite impressive. Going even further and planting plants with the goal of even further reducing CO2 in the air, is truly following through with a goal of improving the environment.
