Our Sales Specialist, Sam Hargreaves, got the chance to attend the Go Electric event held at Multiply at Logistics North, Bolton. The invitation came from Simon Brobyn, Light Commercial Vehicle Specialist at Northern Commercials Ltd, and it was a chance for Sam to get closer to the Iveco Daily Blue Power, International Van of the Year 2018.
Launched internationally in October 2017, the Daily Blue Power range offers customers freedom of choice between three different technologies:
The vehicle has an extended range of up to 200km in real urban conditions, thanks to a flexible battery configuration of up to 3 units and the newly added efficiency features like the EcoPower driving mode and the new regenerating braking strategies.
The battery, which only takes 2 hours to recharge, is optimised for all weather conditions. With the IVECO patented Flexible Charging Modes and the unique electric vehicle inlet and connecter, it is possible to recharge the battery whenever and wherever you are.
The Daily Electric has the widest line-up in the industry, with 100% zero emissions Traction (zero tailpipe emissions). Its silent running operation contributes to a reduction in noise pollution and enables night-time deliveries in urban areas.
The new Web Monitoring Application enables fleet managers to monitor all the Daily Electric vehicles in their fleet in real time, checking multiple parameters.
The vehicle’s 2.3 litre engine featuring the advance Selective Catalytic Reduction technology, has been tested and verified by an independent body for the more stringent regulations to be introduced from 2020 that will measure emissions in real-life driving conditions.
The Daily Euro 6 RDE 2020 Ready features the class exclusive 8-gear automatic gearbox. With the self-adaptive shift strategy, the HI-MATIC engages smoothly the correct gear in less than 200 milliseconds.
The vehicle includes standard features such as Michelin Eco Tyres and the Start & Stop system and delivers up to 7% lower consumption compared to the current version based on real urban customer missions.
The line-up includes panel van, chassis cab, semi-windowed van, crew cab and chassis cowl, available with 136 hp, 156 hp and up to 380 Nm.
The Daily HI-MATIC Natural Power is the best solution for those who have to face everyday city traffic. The driver is fully concentrated on the traffic and driving conditions thanks to the ergonomic multifunctional shift lever.
The vehicle delivers the same performance and transient response as its diesel equivalent, thanks to its sustainable CNG technology. Teamed up with the 3.0 litres Natural Power engine, it pushes the boundaries in terms of fuel economy, resulting in up to 2.5% fuel savings compared to the manual version.
The HI-MATIC transmission coupled with the Natural Gas engine reduces CO2 emissions by up to 5% compared to the diesel version in real driving and in an urban context.
