Especially for the presentation, the entire Iveco, New Holland, Case and Magirus Deutz range were displayed, and Mr. Sergio Marchionne, then CEO of the Fiat Group, was also present at this historic celebration.
At this event, hundreds of firefighters from around the world also attended with the aim of testing the innovative cab in simulated actions.
