The Iveco eDaily has made its first public appearance in the UK at the CV Show in Birmingham.
The large electric van has been available to order since 2022, but this is the first opportunity for customers to get up close and personal with the eDaily.
Iveco says it has received high levels of customer enquiries from across the light commercial vehicle industry since the Iveco eDaily order books were first opened. Early adopters have included Tesco and The AA.
Mike Cutts, Iveco light business line director, said: “The IVECO eDaily’s high degree of connectivity means that operators will be better informed about vehicle performance than ever. Better planning leads to better efficiencies, and so having intelligent eDaily tools at your disposal will make a big impact for customers.”
The new IVECO eDaily electric LCV is a fully fledged workhorse, with a 3.5-tonne towing capacity, built on a truck-based chassis that can carry up to 4.6 tonnes of payload.
The eDaily uses a modular battery concept, allowing customers to specify their vehicle with one, two, or three 37kWh units. This allows operators to tailor their Iveco eDaily to its specific mission, balancing range with payload and journey patterns.
The vehicle has a range of up to 248 miles and can be rapidly charged at a speed of up to 80kW, adding 62 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
Another notable feature is the eDaily's 15kW high voltage ePTO, which enables the vehicle to provide supplementary power to run specialised vehicle bodies such as refrigeration units, waste compactors, and emergency equipment.
The eDaily is also one of the most connected commercial vehicles on the market, with all models coming with the four-year eSTART package as standard for both fleet and retail customers.
