Commercial vehicle maker Iveco has unveiled a new zero-emission eDAILY with a 250 mile range.
Designed to be the “electric twin” of the Daily – which is most commonly seen as a supermarket delivery van in the UK – the eDAILY will covers all body types, including heavy-duty conversions. It has a 250 mile claimed range.
This is said to be a unique proposition in a market where rivals are focussed on smaller vans for urban deliveries.
Iveco claims the eDAILY is the only electric LCV to offer up to 20m3 cargo volume, up to 4.6t payload and up to 3.5t towing ability.
Performance is in line with the diesel version, with 190hp max power and 400Nm max torque. . Energy use can be optimised thanks to the Driving Mode Selector – which allows either to extract maximum power or minimise power use.
The eDAILY also has a One-Pedal Drive mode makes driving easier and converts brake kinetic energy into electricity through regeneration.
The company says the eDAILY also has significant reduction in maintenance and repair expenditure versus the diesel versions. It is offered in van, cab, crew cab, chassis cowl and minibus body variants from 3.5 to 7.2 GVW, in single wheel and twin-wheel versions, with a range of height and wheelbase options.
A range of electric power take offs of up to 15kW are available to power refrigeration, cranes and other superstructures, even the most demanding ones such as waste collection and ‘cherry picker’ aerial platforms.
The eDAILY recharges from public chargers, industrial sockets and domestic sockets. Charging options include fast charging at 80kW, which adds up to 62 miles of range in 30 minutes. Charging can be fully managed via the dedicated app.
eDAILY can be already ordered across Europe, with deliveries starting from the beginning of next year.
