Iveco unveils new electric Daily

Iveco has unveiled a new Daily electric van, which it says has improved payload, reduced energy consumption, and extended battery life.

There are a number of new features on this model compared to the previous one. Compared to the previous model, energy consumption has been reduced thanks to high-efficiency, low-weight electric auxiliaries, and battery life has been extended by up to 20 per cent. The van also has an increased payload capacity of around 100kg.

It has an extended range of up to 280km, measured in accordance with type-approved NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) obtained with a three-battery configuration.

Iveco flexible charging modes allows operators to recharge the New Daily Electric in public or in private infrastructure, by connecting to a fast-charging station for an average charge time of just two hours.

Regenerative braking system is another new feature, allowing the driver to decide which braking method to use while driving. Depending on the characteristics of the road and the traffic conditions, the most appropriate braking mode for that particular moment can be selected, minimising energy consumption while maintaining superb driveability.
