Iveco launches electric variants of the New Daily
CNH Industrial chases New Daily success with an upgraded iteration of its electric Daily range
CNH Industrial brand Iveco has launched an electric version of its New Daily light commercial vehicle (LCV) at the 19th edition of Ecomondo – a trade fair dedicated to the green economy.
The Iveco New Daily Electric (NDE) presents a number of notable upgrades on the previous Daily Electric, with reduced energy consumption thanks to high-efficiency low-weight electric auxiliaries, up to 20% more battery life.
The result is an extended range of up to 280km, measured in accordance with New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) standards, together with an increased payload capacity of around 100kg.
The vehicle also features a regenerative braking system that allows the driver to select the most suitable braking method based on the characteristics of the road and the traffic conditions.
Iveco’s patented flexible charging modes meanwhile allow the NDE to recharge in public or in private infrastructure, by connecting to fast charging stations for an average charge time of just two hours.
In addition to near-silent running characteristics, the NDE is equipped with an acoustic alert system that is activated automatically when driving at speeds below 30kmph to further reduce noise pollution.
The New Daily was recently launched in the Middle East by International Equipment & Contracting Company (IECC), a Suhail Bahwan Group company and Iveco’s dealer in Oman, at an event in Muscat.
Building on the success of the Iveco Daily, which sold more than 2.6 million units worldwide, the New Daily has already been named “International Van of the Year 2015” for its performance in the LCV segment.
