Iveco has presented the New Daily range of light commercial vehicles at a major press conference in China. The launch was held this week at the Beijing Kempinski Hotel and attended by national media, key customers and dealers.
The New Daily will be available in the Chinese market in several versions – as a van, chassis cab and chassis crew cab – with sales to commence in September 2015. These versions will be followed later in the year by the Daily Hi-Matic, which features the innovative eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers outstanding comfort and fuel economy.
Luca Biagini, Head of Iveco China, said at the press conference: “We aim to broaden and enrich the Iveco product line-up we offer in China by providing a full range of light, medium and heavy vehicles capable of fulfilling the growing requirements of the country’s transport businesses. In the light commercial vehicle segment, we are confident that the New Daily will be an excellent match with this market’s needs. In fact, when we previewed the New Daily in 2014 at the Guangzhou International Commercial Vehicle Exhibition, it attracted the interest of visitors and received excellent reviews from the industry.”
Robust, extremely light, comfortable and easy to handle, the New Daily is widely recognised for its superior strength and durability since the first vehicle left the assembly line in 1978. This excellent vehicle has met with success in every market it has entered, and in excess of 2.6 million Daily vans have been sold to-date in more than 110 countries worldwide.
New Daily is the third generation of this proven family of vehicles manufactured in Suzzara, Italy. 80 per cent of the components which comprise New Daily have been redesigned to achieve the perfect combination of tradition and innovation, whilst raising the bar for comfort, versatility and driveability.
The New Daily’s strong all-round package has already been recognised with multiple industry awards, including the prestigious International Van of the Year 2015 Award, which was presented at last year’s IAA Show in Hanover.
