Basildon, April 26, 2016

Iveco has chosen the CV Show as the first opportunity to put the New Daily Euro 6 family on public display anywhere in the world, following its launch to the world's international media only six days ago – atop the Helbronner peak, high in the Italian Alps.

New Daily Euro 6 highlights:

  • Up to 8 per cent fuel savings
  • Up to 12 per cent savings on repair and maintenance costs
  • A comfortable and quiet cabin with a 4 dB noise reduction
  • A new world of connectivity in the cab, with the DAILY BUSINESS UP app
  • Extended Daily Hi-Matic Euro 6 family with five engine ratings
  • Wide range of 4-cylinder engines with outputs from 120 to 210 hp
  • Choice of Euro 6 engine technologies to match customer missions

After New Daily launched in 2014, it took the market by storm and received awards across the world, including International Van of the Year 2015. Iveco has now raised the bar even further with the New Daily Euro 6 and its revolutionary DAILY BUSINESS UP app for tablets and smartphones. Leveraging on its reputation for strength, versatility, performance and durability, the New Daily Euro 6 introduces additional features that use technology to push the boundaries of performance, raise comfort, deliver more connectivity and lower the total cost of ownership, reflecting its true Business Instinct and ability to be the perfect business partner.

Speaking at the international launch, Pierre Lahutte, Iveco Brand President, said: "We have sold more than 2.8 million Daily vehicles since the first model rolled off the production line. With the New Daily Euro 6 we aim to add to this number considerably. The best Daily ever just got even better."

Productive comfort in a professional work environment

The New Daily Euro 6 introduces new features that further raise the levels of comfort and functionality of the cab. The cabin is even quieter than in previous models, with the noise level reduced by 4 dB, improving the vehicle's acoustics and sound recognition by 8 per cent.

The comfortable interiors feature a new leather steering wheel, blue seat covers and new textile foam headrests. The layout has been revised to include up to 18 storage compartments strategically placed around the cab for greater accessibility. The functional dashboard introduces new features designed to create a connected professional workstation. The new digital radio (DAB) integrated into the dashboard offers all the main DAB and FM features with all the multimedia and phone management functionalities expected on a high-end vehicle. A practical cradle can hold mobile devices of different sizes and can double as a clipboard. Two easily reachable USB ports make it possible to enjoy multimedia content through the new DAB radio and to charge mobile devices. An optional inductive charger is also available for smartphones featuring the latest technologies. With all these features, the cabin provides a professional environment where driver and passengers can work productively in full safety.

To make the most of the time spent in the cab, the New Daily Euro 6 is the first light commercial vehicle to take on-board connectivity beyond the concept of infotainment, turning it into a true professional work tool with the exclusive dedicated application called 'DAILY BUSINESS UP'.

DAILY BUSINESS UP can act as the customer's Driver Assistant with features such as the Driving Style Evaluation (DSE) system, Sygic professional navigation and the Interactive User Handbook. The app also serves as the driver's Business Assistant, helping to optimise the fleet's efficiency with Fleetwork and to keep track of scheduled services. The app also takes care of customer assistance, providing a direct link to Assistance Non-Stop, Iveco's 24/7 roadside assistance service. All these features contribute to the New Daily Euro 6's lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a healthy bottom line for the customer.

The New Daily Euro 6 also introduces a new way of delivering connectivity that doesn't require the installation of any equipment in the vehicle; drivers are able to communicate with the vehicle and its engine through their own smartphone or tablet, using the DAILY BUSINESS UP app. Bluetooth connection with the vehicle is automatically established through the new digital radio and in a few seconds the New Daily Euro 6 becomes a connected professional workstation.

Absolute driving pleasure with the new generation Daily Hi-Matic Euro 6 family

The New Daily Euro 6 range also includes the class-exclusive Hi-Matic family, which offers ultimate comfort and all the benefits of safety, performance and productivity with features such as the ergonomic multifunctional lever and self-adaptive shift strategy. It also benefits from the intelligent EcoSwitch PRO system that knows exactly when to step in without intervention from the driver, recognising if the vehicle is loaded or not, reducing fuel consumption and further lowering emissions with no compromise for the customer's productivity. Daily Hi-Matic is an example of how Iveco puts the driver at the core of its design process, improving productivity and providing absolute driving pleasure. The new generation Daily Hi-Matic family has also been extended to include a wider range of models to meet all business needs.

Sustainable technology at the service of transport operators

The New Daily Euro 6 range offers two four-cylinder engines, with displacements of 2.3 and 3.0 litres, power ranging from 120 to 210 horsepower, and torque from 320 to 470 Nm – all this with considerable fuel savings of up to 8 per cent (on NEDC cycle), compared to the previous Euro 5 models.

Iveco's engine strategy leverages on its leadership in engines and SCR technology: it is driven by its aim for excellence and will introduce RDE (Real Driving Emissions) ready hardware well in advance of the new regulations that will be mandatory starting from 2020.

The two 4-cylinder engines guarantee top performance in the extensive range of missions that have gross vehicle weights up to 7.2 tonnes. It also features the exclusive patented MULTIJET II system, which optimises combustion.

The brand new 2.3-litre F1A engine has been re-engineered from the oil-sump up. By using modern materials and virtual optimisation Iveco has been able to reduce the engine's weight by 6 per cent. By reducing friction, further optimising the cooling and the MULTIJET II injection system, installing a variable displacement oil pump, and other such improvements, fuel consumption has been cut by 8 per cent on the NEDC cycle.

Tested over 35,000 hours on the test bench and more than 1.3 million kilometres on the road, F1A's combination of these technical interventions, together with a slightly higher displacement compared to Iveco's competitors, and a Low Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation system, ensure that the engine has naturally reduced raw emissions, which only require a simplified after-treatment system.

At the next product update of the New Daily Euro 6 family, at the beginning of 2017, the F1A engine will feature Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. With this solution, Iveco, a pioneer with more than 25 years of SCR experience, takes the lead and will be ready for 2020 Real Driving Emissions limits three years before they come into force.

And, confirming its Business Instinct, the new Daily Euro 6 has the flexibility to maintain availability of Low Pressure EGR on models featuring the F1A engine for customers with low mileage missions who prefer this solution.

In terms of performance, new features such as the Variable Displacement Oil Pump and Variable Geometry Turbine on the F1A engine, the EcoSwitch PRO, the lighter engine, and the reduced friction in engines and axles, further contribute to the Daily's outstanding fuel economy, low running costs, and high power and torque.

The optimised 3.0-litre F1C engine, tested over 20,000 hours on test bench and over 1.5 million kilometres on the road, features Selective Catalytic Reduction technology that controls NOx emissions and new injectors that help to optimise combustion and to lower Particulate Matter at engine out. This enables it to develop all the power needed for the most demanding high mileage and heavy-duty missions with remarkably low fuel consumption, long maintenance intervals and thus low operating costs.

The wide engine line-up also includes the New Daily Natural Power, which runs on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or compressed biomethane (CBM), providing an advantage in urban areas with restricted traffic for its clean and quiet operation. There is also the New Daily Electric, the silent, zero-emissions version.

Low TCO

All the new features contribute to lowering the New Daily Euro 6 model's total cost of ownership. The vehicle is packed full of features that result in excellent fuel economy: from the Variable Geometry Turbine on models ranging from 140 to 180 hp that ensures a more efficient use of the engine, to the new EcoSwitch PRO intelligent system that automatically reduces torque when needed without driver intervention, reducing fuel consumption with no compromise to productivity.

These innovative solutions, together with the efficient engine and driveline technologies, result in an outstanding reduction in fuel consumption: up to 8 per cent compared to Euro 5 models. In addition, as much as 15 per cent of fuel can be saved by the driver following the real-time suggestions of the Driving Style Evaluation system.

Maintenance intervals have been extended to 50,000 km through the use of longer lasting components and consumables, resulting in 20 per cent more uptime between services. The optimised braking system, with new tougher brake pads, is more efficient and durable. All this, together with the harmonisation of maintenance interventions resulting in more vehicle uptime, adds up to a significant reduction in repair and maintenance costs: up to 12 per cent depending on the vehicle's mission.

Maximum bodybuilding flexibility

The Daily is the most versatile vehicle in its class with the widest line-up in the industry ranging from 3.5 up to 7.2 tonnes, and loadspace volumes from 7.3 m³ to 19.6 m³. The exceptional versatility and variety of versions available – van, semi-windowed van, chassis cab, chassis cowl and crew cab – opens up a wealth of possibilities for a wide variety of missions.

In addition, the unique ladder frame chassis which is engineered with C-section side members in special steel, is the best platform for bodybuilders to adapt for very diverse missions, such as motorhomes, ambulances and bodies for vehicle-recovery or refuse/recycling-collection. This outstanding versatility is further extended with the introduction of the new 5,100 mm wheelbase on the 7 tonne model, which maximises the possible body length for the chassis cab versions and adds even more adaptation opportunities for bodybuilders.

New Daily minibus Euro VI: moving people in luxury and comfort

The extensive range of New Daily Minibus models at Euro VI offers a solution for a wide variety of passenger transport missions: from tourist to student transport.

The 6.5-tonne version at the top of the range represents the best standard vehicle in its class, with a capacity of up to 22 passengers and ample luggage space. Like the other models in the Daily family, it is available with a choice of diesel, gas and electric engines.

Made in Suzzara, home of the Daily

The New Daily Euro 6 is manufactured at Iveco's production plant in Suzzara, Italy, which is entirely focused on this product family. The facility relies on World Class Manufacturing (WCM) processes to manage the high degree of complexity that comes with producing the extensive Daily range, which has as many as 11,000 product variations. WCM is a methodology that aims to create error-free processes in order to achieve zero defects, zero waste and zero accidents. It is a continuous improvement process that centres on the involvement of every operator involved in production.

The Suzzara plant introduced WCM in 2007 and in just five years achieved Silver Medal certification, which attests to the high levels of quality it delivers.
