"The decision to manufacture this model in Argentina is a sign of the company's global confidence in our Productive Pole and is also a new advance in the ambitious import substitution process that we have proposed to carry out", he claimed Marcus cheistwer, President of CNH Industrial Argentina, owner of Iveco.

Designed for short and medium-distance urban commutes, the 15-ton Tector currently arrives from Brazil, but preparations are underway to transfer production to the Córdoba plant.

The Tector 150E21 has the highest power (206 hp) and torque (720 Nm) on the market. These results are possible thanks to the cutting-edge technology of the NEF4 engine 4,5-liter SCR four-cylinder engine to begin production at the factory in FPT Industrial, also within the CNH Industrial Productive Pole in Córdoba.
