Iveco supplies eDaily vans to Tesco home delivery fleet

14 March 2024 #Van

Iveco has delivered the first of 151 electric eDaily chassis cab vans to the Tesco fleet as part of the supermarket’s drive to decarbonise operations.

The two-battery eDaily has been specified to optimise payload and range, and the supermarket will add a further 150 of the models towards the end of this year.

Joining the Tesco Horwich home delivery fleet, this first new eDaily enables zero-emissions deliveries to customers via its modular battery setup.

The electric motor efficiently provides strong performance with 140kW and 400Nm of torque deployable.

Capable of rapid charging at 80kW, 62 miles of range can be added in 30 minutes, while a 22kW onboard charger enables Tesco to maximise charging from AC chargers at local stores.

The vehicle’s refrigerated Solomon Commercials body is able to take advantage of 15kW of e-PTO onboard power to cool perishable goods while on delivery missions.

A second 12V e-PTO provides low-voltage power for additional cooling from the GAH Transport Refrigeration fridge, creating a totally self-sustaining zero-emissions vehicle.

Rob Smallwood, Fleet Manager at Tesco said: “The delivery of the Iveco eDaily electric home delivery van to our Horwich store is an exciting step as we move towards a fully electric fleet across the UK by 2030.

“The extended range the eDaily offers will enable us to reach more customers in a single trip at our bigger catchments stores, and help us reach our commitment to be carbon neutral in our own operations by 2035.”
