IVECO brings its iconic legacy into two very Special Editions: the Leoncino and the Tigrotto

IVECO celebrates the launch of the new eDAILY at IAA 2022 with two Special Edition models that draw on the brand’s DNA to offer a unique combination of past and future. They take inspiration from two iconic vehicles from the 50s and 60s, the Tigrotto and the Leoncino, which left their mark on the booming economy of those years. These vehicles were built in Italy by one of IVECO’s historic brands OM-Officine Meccaniche.

DAILY 4x4 Tigrotto: styled to the extreme
The Tigrotto comes to life again in the DAILY 4x4, a vehicle unique in the segment: a true off-roader with the extreme versatility of a professional LCV. No destination is out of reach with a choice of on-road and off-road versions up to 7.0 ton GVW, payload up to 4300 kg and body lengths up to 5.0 meters. With its 3.0-litre 180 hp engine and 8-speed automatic gearbox, the DAILY 4X4 Tigrotto delivers a powerful performance and superior drivability.

This Special Edition draws on core values and styling features of the original Tigrotto: a fearless vehicle, just like the tiger it was named after, the DAILY 4x4 Tigrotto proudly wears its vocation for the world of off-roading. The two-tone bodywork highlights the vehicle’s robustness. The red colour of the body-on-frame chassis is a hallmark of original IVECO’s production. The body-coloured dashboard with vintage touches confers to the vehicle a high-end image and feel that will also appeal to the motorhome and recreational markets. The signature of the original Tigrotto on the grille further links the Special Edition vehicle to its roots.

eDAILY Leoncino: the iconic Leoncino goes electric
The Leoncino Special Edition reinvents its iconic legacy for the future. It shares the advanced e-mobility features of the eDAILY, IVECO’s brand-new zero-emission vehicle – the only electric LCV to offer up to 20m3 cargo volume, up to 4.6t payload and up to 3.5t towing ability. It features the signature body-on-frame solution of the eDAILY van: with a 4100mm wheelbase and up to 3 batteries of 111 kWh installed, it can achieve a "diesel like" performancewith up to 400 km range autonomy in urban cycle.

The Leoncino is equipped with IVECO’s state-of-art connectivity-enabled services accessed through the IVECO ON portal, digital services such us the IVECO Driver Pal vocal driver companion, as well as new features developed to help eDAILY owners to manage their fleet efficiently and provide drivers with full peace of mind.

The Leoncino’s playful styling was designed to celebrate the new vehicle’s innovative drive and class-leading features. The two-tone bodywork draws on the colours of the past, with the vintage blue-green shade fading to a creamy colour. The automotive feel of the side skirts, together with the “Leoncino” lettering and swoosh on the side, convey the vehicle’s dynamism. The design of the cab interior uses style elements from the past to create a bright environment full of vibrant colours. The colour details in the foglamp area and the alloy wheels confer a touch of style. The Leoncino Special Edition combines a sense of new energy with an iconic vehicle of the past – leaping into the future with the agility of its namesake, the Lion.

In a slightly simplified configuration compared to the show vans displayed at the IAA, The Tigrotto DAILY 4x4 Special Edition will be available to order in cab and van version in September of this year, while orders for the Leoncino eDAILY van Special Edition will open in December 2022.
