Hagglund Bv206 with Iveco diesel engine

Renovated all-terrain vehicle with new diesel engine. Manufactured by us on the basis of the original Hagglund Bv206. Main differences:

  • new Iveco diesel engine;
  • 6-speed automatic gearbox;
  • 12V or 12V/24V electrical system;
  • other improvements and changes that noticeably update this successful, but age-old vehicle.

The main drawback of the BV-206 is the lack of new BV-206’s. Their production was discontinued in 1993. However, the margin of safety allows these all-terrain vehicles to be operated for many decades. All they need is the renewal of units and systems, as age and normal wear and tear take their toll. The updated BV-206 with a modern, reliable and powerful Iveco diesel engine is an excellent solution if you need a relatively compact, reliable and passable all-terrain vehicle.

Characteristics of the renovated Bv206 with an Iveco diesel engine

Most of the parameters of the Bv206 do not change during the update process. The dimensions and weight characteristics of the rear section remain the same. These options can be found here. The following characteristics of the all-terrain vehicle are changed.


At your choice, two versions of Iveco diesel engines can be installed in the renovated Bv206:

  • 146 hp, 350 N/m;
  • 197 hp, 450 N/m.

Other characteristics of the engines are the same:

  • I4;
  • turbodiesel;
  • 3.0 litre;
  • Common Rail.

The 197-hp version differs from the 146-hp version with a simple turbocharger (not variable geometry turbocharger), and the absence of many systems that improve the “ecology” of the engine. As a result, the 197-hp version is more powerful, while being simpler and more reliable.

Advantages of this engines

Reliable fuel system

Despite the fact that modern engines are always electronically controlled Common Rail, simplicity is the main advantage of these Iveco engines. They are equipped with a simple system with a mechanical high pressure fuel pump, and an electric booster pump (its task is to supply fuel from the tank to the engine, no more). The engine does not use expensive and capricious pump-injector s. The result – the engine proved to be quite loyal to the quality of the fuel.

Minimum electronics on the engine

These engines are equipped with only those sensors that it needs for normal operation and for the operation of control and measuring equipments. In addition, when installing the engine, we carefully seal all connections, and use only sealed connectors.

Reliable timing drive

The timing drive is a chain whose resource without problems allows you to forget about it until the engine is overhauled.

Simple and reliable turbocharger

In the 197-hp version engine install a simple turbocharger without a variable geometry. This engine are practically no systems for improving the “ecology”. The engine turned out to be more powerful, simpler and more reliable. To better protect the turbine during non-professional operation, we can install a turbo timer.

Convenient maintenance

For example, on Iveco engines, the oil filter is traditionally changed from above. On an all-terrain vehicle, absolutely devoid of access to the engine from below, it is very convenient.

Spare parts availability

Engines of this series are very common. Spare parts for them are quite affordable, and will not leave the market for a long time.

Extended Warranty

The new engine itself is reliable and comes with a warranty like any new unit.


The transmission of the Bv206 was developed for a gasoline engine, and has never been altered. But modern diesel engines are very low-speed, and their maximum torque is in a fairly narrow rev range. This is done to achieve maximum engine efficiency. But to ensure an acceptable range of machine speeds paired with such an engine, the installation of multi-stage automatic transmissions is required.

With the Iveco diesel we install a six-speed automatic gearbox. This is a classic hydromechanical gearbox with electronic control. The gearbox are undergoing a complete overhaul. The gearbox is technically refined for better operation in difficult conditions and the fastest gear shifting. Software methods allow you to optimize the algorithms for any operating conditions. Cooling system automatically maintains the optimum operating fluid temperature.

During operation, the automatic transmission requires a minimum of maintenance – only cleaning from dirt, and changing the oil and filter.

Other changes and improvements

Fuel system

The fuel system is equipped with an electric fuel priming pump, and a heated fuel filter with a water-in-fuel indicator. Optionally, the ignition system can be blocked in the presence of water in the fuel. For regions with a cold climate we can install the heaters for fuel intakes.

Electric system

Since the engine and gearbox control systems are 12-volt, it is advisable to convert the all-terrain vehicle to 12 volts. We can implement an version in which the system of the all-terrain vehicle will remain 24-volt, and the engine and gearbox control systems will be 12-volt. However, as experience shows, it is more promising, more reliable and easier in terms of weight to still transfer the entire all-terrain vehicle to 12 volts.

The instrument panel is being redesigned – instruments and indicators are changing.

Other modifications may be made as agreed with the Customer.

The weight of the renovated Bv206

After all the improvements, the weight of the front section of the vehicle increases by 150 … 200 kg. We recommend reducing the payload of the front section to 430 kg or 4 people.

Work carried out to renovate the vehicle

The renovated Bv206’s are built on the basis of the original vehicles produced from 1971 to 1993. The level of renewal of the all-terrain vehicle depends on the condition of the original vehicle, and the wishes of the Customer.

Minimum version

Basic maintenance of the vehicle, and bringing it into a state of readiness for operation. This is the basic, most budgetary preparation option, performed along with the replacement of the engine.

Maximum version

Full restoration of the vehicle. Bringing it, if not to a new state, then as close as possible to this. Such a machine is supplied to the Customer on the terms of delivery of new equipment. This is the longest and most expensive – but also the most reliable option.

These two variants do not mean that you can choose one or the other. They define the points of the many variants that you can choose between when ordering an vehicle from us. In any case, we discuss all the details and determine the best variant that suits you.
