Tesco takes huge order for new Iveco eDaily

March 5, 2024

Supermarket giants Tesco has taken delivery of its first Iveco eDaily in what will eventually see 150 units join their home delivery fleet. The 42S14E mode eDaily is a 4.25-tonne van which has been chosen for its payload and range.

A further 150 Iveco eDaily vans, all with two-batteries, will join the Tesco electric van fleet by the end of 2024.

This first new van will join the Tesco Horwich home delivery fleet, with drivers making use of its 140kW electric motor and 400Nm of torque. It's claimed to be capable of rapid charging at 80kW, adding 62 miles of range in just 30 minutes. There's also a 22kW onboard charger to allow vans to charge on a three phase AC charger at local stores.

Built with a refrigerated Solomon Commercials body, the eDaily vans will use a 15kW e-PTO to cool perishable goods. A second 12V e-PTO provides low-voltage power for additional cooling from the GAH Transport Refrigeration fridge. Tesco is also using the eDaily’s connectivity features to control the vehicle's driving modes, remotely selecting the best for optimised performance and efficiency.

Rob Smallwood, Fleet Manager at Tesco said: “The delivery of the IVECO eDaily electric home delivery van to our Horwich store is an exciting step as we move towards a fully electric fleet across the UK by 2030.

The extended range the eDaily offers will enable us to reach more customers in a single trip at our bigger catchments stores, and help us reach our commitment to be carbon neutral in our own operations by 2035.”

The IVECO Daily has been a familiar sight on the nationwide Tesco delivery fleet since 2010. A class-leading turning circle is a strong asset for drivers frequently operating in urban environments, something that makes manoeuvring these vehicles effortless. The transition into the all-electric eDaily should be an easy one for drivers thanks to the diesel vehicles being already specified with the Hi-Matic automatic transmission.
