Quote "Sounds like you need some roadside assistance."

Ivan (pronounced ee-van, not eye-van) is a minor antagonist in Cars 2.

Cars 2

"Most tow trucks just look tough, but Ivan is really tough. From his front grille to his rear hook, he's built solid. What else would you expect from Victor H.'s personal chauffeur ? The rumor that he demolished a subcompact with one drop of the tow boom may sound preposterous, but it's absolutely true. Still, every tough truck has a weakness, and for Ivan it's helping a pretty sports car with a flat tire. All she has to do is give a wink and a shy smile, and he's ready with "roadside assistance"."[1]

Ivan is a blue tow truck who works for Victor Hugo. He is Victor's personal transportation, towing him place to place. He also serves as a body guard. During the film, when Mater was trying to get McQueen's attention in a crowd, the lemons grab him and Ivan takes his place. Mater disguises himself as Ivan to infiltrate the lemon meeting being held in Porto Corsa to get info. Holley Shiftwell tazes Ivan before this so he doesn't blow their cover. He later regains consciousness and captures Holley. In the end, he is attacked by Mater when he tries to get Lightning McQueen, and is arrested in London with lemon employers.


  • Ivan resembles a Chevrolet 4100 tow truck.
  • Ivan's license plate reads PN-217-63.
  • His model based Mater. In fact, they are based each other.
