Iveco has launched its new Daily range in the UK comprising ECODAILY and Daily, representing the most extensive and environmentally friendly line-up of van and chassis cab models yet. Designed to minimise impact on our ecology and offer maximum economy to light commercial vehicle operators, all ECODAILY engines are both Euro 5 and EEV compliant and all other models benefit from a new range of Euro 4 engines.
The launch sees the ECODAILY product line-up extend into a new sector, with vehicles in the UK spanning the complete 3.5 to 7.0 tonne market (previously 3.5 to 6.5 tonnes). The new 7.0 tonne model will be available to order from the second quarter of 2010 and provides an increase in payload capacity of 470 kg compared to regular 6.5 tonne variants, providing over 4,700 kg of body and payload capacity for chassis cab models – more than many medium range trucks, which is testament to ECODAILY’s truck style heritage.
This exceptional carrying capacity also means that a fully-loaded 7.0 tonne ECODAILY can transport a load equivalent to more than that of three regular 3.5 tonners combined. Not only does this ensure this new model is suitable for even the most demanding light commercial vehicle applications, it also means that total emissions can be reduced by over 60 per cent through using one vehicle instead of three.
The full UK product line-up is available in van, semi-window van, chassis cab, chassis crew cab and MPV versions. A choice of ten engine ratings from 96 to 176 hp, as well as an array of wheelbase lengths, overall lengths, internal heights and axle ratios provides more than 7,000 different configurations. It also includes the largest panel van available on the market in the UK, offering a load carrying capacity of 17.2 m³, enabling up to six Euro pallets to be carried.
This new product line-up builds upon Iveco’s significant experience and heritage in the light commercial vehicle industry, which started with the launch of Daily in 1978 and has since seen over two million vehicles delivered to customers worldwide.
