09 April 2014 #CV Sector #News #Sales #Van

News from Iveco: The third generation of the Iveco Daily, which will soon make its arrival in markets across Europe, will be unveiled in June 2014. This entirely new vehicle is the result of the perfect blend between tradition and innovation, making it the preferred working companion for professional transport operators.

The vehicle is manufactured at plants in Suzzara in Italy and Valladolid in Spain, two facilities where Iveco has recently made significant investments in upgrading its production line technology.

The new Daily still retains its classic ladder frame chassis structure, which ensures strength, flexibility, and long-term durability, as well as greater ease of configuration for chassis cab models, but there are also numerous new features that the third gen Daily offers Iveco customers.

The van has seen its performance in terms of handling and carrying capacity being improved, thanks to optimised load volumes, and ease of use with a more accessible cargo bed.

Thanks to the new design, with elongated wheelbases and a shortened rear overhang, the new Daily guarantees excellent driveability without compromising its well-known agility in tight spaces. All models up to 3.5 tonnes are equipped with new front suspensions, which afford excellent control of the vehicle and allow for an improvement in comfort and for the maximum possible load capacity. A new rear suspension layout has been designed for single wheel drive models that decreases the height of the loading platform by an estimated 55 millimetres, thereby simplifying loading and unloading operations.

The third generation of the Daily is strongly oriented towards businesses, delivering more than a 5% fuel consumption saving compared with the previous model. This is combined with a significant improvement in Total Cost of Ownership for the vehicle, together with best in class performance and a wide choice of engines, transmissions and axle ratios.

The on-board experience has also been greatly improved with a cabin that offers new levels of comfort and noise insulation, guaranteeing the same driving position and feel that is typical of a high-performing automobile.

Strong by nature, versatile, and easy to drive, and also attractive thanks to its fresh and modern styling, the new Daily is the most concrete illustration of the continuous improvement of a product that has been a key player in the history of light commercial vehicle transport for more than 35 years.

To complete its offering, the new Daily will also be available in a variety of minibus versions to meet the needs of customers who operate in the passenger transportation sector, both in urban areas and for rapid transfers outside of urban networks.

The new Daily will be available through Iveco dealerships in June.
