He was seen with Holley Shiftwell when she tricked him to thinking she needed her help for her grandfather. He was eventually tasered by Holley. When Mater was abducted by the Lemons, Ivan showed up and talked to Lightning for a while to cover the lemons' tracks. In the end, Mater hit Ivan unconscious while everyone was fighting in London.

Also, Ivan is manipulative like Sir Miles Axlerod, the Lemons' leader. He manages to trick Lightning McQueen by convincing him he was the tow truck trying to catching his attention in order to distract him while the Lemons captured Mater and to prevent McQueen from knowing the Lemons' planning to assassinate him when Mater tried to warn him. However, Ivan is not as manipulative as Axlerod as McQueen was still convinced that he heard and saw Mater.
