The last ACCO Euro 5 model truck left Iveco's assembly line back in Melbourne in November 2019, heralding the launch of the 6th generation in coming months.
Introduced in 1961 the ACCO has remained a favourite in the Australian trucking scene.
Iveco said over the ACCO's lifetime, more than 4,300 specification changes have occurred, ensuring the truck remained fit for purpose over the years.
Iveco Australia and New Zealand Managing Director, Bruce Healy said the ACCO had proud heritage and that the final unit would be retained by the company for posterity and for display at future events.
Mr Healy said the new model had undergone an extensive local development program, with several evaluation vehicles currently in year-long trials with key refuse customers, where they have performed exceptionally well according to feedback and performance benchmarking.
Features of the new model will include a Euro 6 engine, adaptive cruise control, an advanced emergency braking system, electronic brakes with braking assistance, an electronic stability program and daytime running lamps.
