Iveco launch new Daily Electric van
- Created: 10 November 2015
Iveco, the Italian industrial vehicle manufacturing company have launched an electric version of their popular Iveco Daily large van.
Unveiled at Ecomondo, a trade fair that's dedicated to helping produce a greener economy, the new Iveco Daily Electric is 100% electric and produces zero-emissions.
The new vehicle is perfectly suited for an urban environment and for undertaking services like passenger transport and door-to-door deliveries thanks to the best-in-class efficiency boasting an extended range of up to 280km, measured in accordance with type-approved NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) obtained with a three-battery configuration.
Battery life has been extended by 20% thanks to low energy consumption that the Daily Electric owes to it's high-efficiency, low-weight electric auxiliaries. The new battery performance has been optimised for all weather and temperature conditions - also the batteries are 100% recyclable.
Recharging the vehicle is simple thanks to Iveco's patented flexible charging modes that allow operators to recharge the Daily Electric in private or in public infrastructure by connecting to a 'fast-charging' station - with an average charge time of just two hours.
The new Daily Electric allows drivers to choose between two driving modes; Eco and Power. In Eco mode the engine's torque is moderated to help minimise energy consumption without imposing any restrictions on the vehicle's maximum speed, Power mode allows the driver to utilise the full performance of the electric drive motor.
Another major new feature is the Regenerative Braking system where the driver can decide which braking method to use while driving, depending on the characteristics of the road and the traffic conditions the Regenerative Braking system applies the most appropriate braking mode for that moment, helping to minimise energy consumption and maintain driveability.
