The smart vehicle that future-proofs the customer’s business

IVECO breaks new ground with the new Daily Air-Pro family, featuring the unique intelligent pneumatic suspension with smart electronic controls – an industry first – that enhances driving comfort, protects the vehicle’s driver and load, and adapts to the requirements of the mission.

The New Daily takes connectivity and collaboration to a new level with IVECO Driver Pal through Amazon Alexa voice commands. The new vocal companion enables the driver to interact with the vehicle and with the driver community via voice commands, delivering a safer, stress-free, comfortable driving experience.

The state-of-the-art engine technology and after-treatment system ensure full Euro 6-D Final and Euro VI-E compliance in real conditions and for life (Conformity Factor =1) ahead of regulations. The optimised 2.3-litre engine delivers up to 6% fuel savings and enhances the Daily’s versatility with up to 15% torque increase for demanding applications.

IVECO presented the New Daily to its dealer network and the international press in a live digital event streamed on its IVECO Live Channel platform. The latest evolution of the Daily family of light commercial vehicles breaks new ground, introducing new adaptive and intelligent solutions that take interaction and collaboration with the driver and owner to a new level, turning the vehicle into a true companion in business success.

Thomas Hilse, IVECO Brand President, said: “With the New Daily we move to the next level and go smart. It offers a level of innovation with no equivalent on the market. It brings on board best-in-class comfort and safety, extraordinary flexibility and mission focus, together with a substantial TCO reduction and a constantly expanding portfolio of IVECO ON services. For us at IVECO, improvement is a never-ending process – when we reach one goal, we immediately start working on the next one. We never stop.

Davide Diana, IVECO Light Business Line Director, stated: “Every Daily generation has set new standards, and this has made of Daily ‘a Brand within the IVECO Brand’ with enduring success. Today, the Daily leads the European chassis cab sector and, with the Daily 7-ton version, the high-payload sub-segment. It is true to its sustainability vocation, being the point of reference in alternative-fuel LCVs. The New Daily enters the LCV market in a year where it is expected to rise to the highest level in history. Registrations have consistently grown over the last 3 quarters, with IVECO following the same trend.

The key trends in the commercial vehicle industry have driven the latest evolutionary push of the New Daily. It builds on its core values of versatility, robustness, durability and performance, which have made it a favourite in its segment for more than 40 years. It introduces innovative, customer-centred solutions that make it a supremely adaptive, interactive, collaborative and connected vehicle – the most innovative LCV in its generation and the customer’s smart companion.

The New Daily anticipates customer demands in a commercial vehicle industry that is changing fast, with the Covid-19 pandemic having amplified and accelerated existing trends. The last-mile delivery sector has experienced a boom, as consumers dramatically increased their reliance on e-commerce and delivery services during lockdowns. This shift in shopping habits is expected to be permanent to some degree with the easing of restrictions – with a consequent growth in the demand for light commercial vehicles. Connectivity has become a necessity in every area of everyday life – personal and professional – and vehicles must meet this requirement. Sustainability and clean air have acquired even more urgency, leading to increasingly challenging vehicle emissions standards. Public incentives are supporting the development of new infrastructure, with a consequent recovery in the construction sector, which is set to benefit significantly the Daily chassis-cab.
