After the resounding success of the New Daily, winner of the prestigious International Van of the Year 2015 award, Iveco presents a world-exclusive: the New Daily Electric. The vehicle has been unveiled at Ecomondo, a trade fair dedicated to the green and circular economy, which runs from 3-6 November at Rimini Fiera.
The Iveco New Daily Electric is a 100 per cent electric, zero-emissions vehicle which guarantees maximum sustainability, offers superior levels of reliability and is perfectly suited for urban missions, such as door-to-door distribution and passenger transport.
There are a number of new features on this model compared to the previous one. Energy consumption is reduced thanks to high-efficiency, low-weight electric auxiliaries, and battery life has been extended by up to 20 per cent. Furthermore, the New Daily Electric boasts an increased payload capacity of around 100kg. Battery performance is optimised for all weather and temperature conditions, and the batteries are 100 per cent recyclable.
In addition, the vehicle’s Iveco-patented 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.
The New Daily Electric offers best-in-class efficiency, with an extended range of up to 280km, measured in accordance with type-approved NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) obtained with a three-battery configuration.
The vehicle allows the driver to choose between two driving modes: Ecoand Power. In Eco mode, the engine torque is moderated to minimise energy consumption, without imposing any limits on the maximum speed of the vehicle. In Power mode, the driver can enjoy the full performance of the electric drive motor.
The Regenerative Braking system is another major new feature of the New Daily Electric, 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.
Nuevo IVECO Daily Eléctrico
Thanks to the widest line-up in the industry for van and cab, up to 5.6-tonne gross vehicle weight and up to 19.6m3 cargo volume – and the proven New Daily chassis’ versatility – the New Daily Electric is perfectly at ease in a variety of working environments, from city centres and shuttle services to leisure travel.
The vehicle’s nearly-silent running characteristics contribute to a reduction in noise pollution, and enable night-time deliveries in urban areas. In addition, the New Daily Electric is equipped with a pedestrian acoustic alert system as standard, which is activated automatically when driving at speeds of 0-30km/h.
The vehicle’s power and robustness are guaranteed by its C-profile frame structure – one of the New Daily’s most celebrated design features. Formed in high-strength steel, the C-profile frame ensures maximum durability over time and flexibility of use.
Inside, the New Daily Electric is equipped with a 7’’ detachable tablet and an electronic dashboard for vehicle data management, while best-in-class navigation technology comes courtesy of TomTom® Bridge for Iveco. This system for Iveco New Daily Electric is the unique result of TomTom® and Iveco teaming up to offer professional drivers a tailor-made navigation solution. A semi-integrated dashboard dock delivers the comfort of a built-in system and the flexibility of a detachable device.
Iveco designed and built the first Daily powered by electrical propulsion in 1986 – a vehicle which became the precursor for electric propulsion engines. The range was subsequently extended to include vans and urban minibuses.
Iveco is a brand of CNH Industrial N.V., a World leader in Capital Goods listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: CNHI) and on the Mercato Telematico Azionario of the Borsa Italiana (MI: CNHI).

Even more attractive, eco-sustainable, efficient and manoeuvrable. Cities love the new Eurocargo: the truck which respects people and the environment in which it works, even on the busy streets of a major city. The new Eurocargo – the face changes but the essentials remain: its functionality and design are new, but it is the same robust, reliable and versatile vehicle already chosen by half a million customers in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and Latin America. A business partner – and a friend – for everyone.
DESIGN, The urban face of transport
Withthe new Eurocargo, transport is putting on its best face. The new cab is modern and practical, fully expressing the vehicle’s energetic character.
The Eurocargo picks up the new style launched on the IVECO Daily. The shape of the new air deflectors highlights the large brand name in the centre. The deflectors have been reshaped in line with the design of the front. With its UV filter screen, the windscreen offers excellent protection, without the negative aerodynamic impact of an exterior sunshade.
The new bumper provides the step to access the windscreen for cleaning whilst also housing the AEBS radar. The new headlamp cluster, with LED Daytime Running Lights (as standard), is also available with Xenon headlights.
The doors bear the new badge with the Eurocargo logo and the initials identifying the model.
Design meets functionality. All the details have been developed thanks to an in-depth study in aerodynamics – such as, for example, the new deflector which guides the flow of air guaranteeing the door handle stays clean
The new Eurocargo is the best city truck: the perfect vehicle for door-to-door deliveries, for missions across town and for any other jobs in the city centres. Thanks to its ideal cab width (2.1 m), its large steering angle (52 degrees) and the best turning circle in its category (just under 11 metres for the 2790 mm wheelbase version), it is perfect for tasks in urban areas.
COMFORT, A comfortable office on the move.
The new Eurocargo takes comfort and ergonomics to new levels. The steering wheel controls enable the driver to use the radio and phone in complete safety. The vehicle also features new, more ergonomic controls for the climate control, lights and automatic/automated gearbox. Everything has its place, within arm’s reach: it now features more storage compartments for items and documents, special compartments for cards and a hanging rail on the back wall of the cab.
The driver’s side console houses two practical bottle holders, a 12 V power socket and an option for a compressed air socket.
The new Eurocargo truly is an office on the move. The new mobile office with a capacity of 20 litres (available with single passenger seat) can house a laptop or tablet; it also features a reading light and is equipped with side storage pockets and two USB connectors for charging electronic devices. A comfortable work space can also be created by opening the upper deck.
The new design extends to the interior which is equipped with seats trimmed with an in electrowelded fabric; there is a new “high-comfort” air suspension driver’s seat, available upon request, with a fully adjustable backrest, height-adjustable seat belt, dual density upholstery, heating and ventilation. An armrest is available as an optional extra for all air-suspended seats.
Perfect for urban missions, the new Eurocargo guarantees easy CROSS CAB ACCESS: thanks to the linear dashboard and the compact dimensions of the engine tunnel, the driver can easily leave the vehicle from either the right or the left.
SAFETY, The importance of prevention
The new Eurocargo protectsthe driver andthe load: in addition to its robustness and passive safety, the Eurocargo is now also equipped with a steering wheel airbag – a brand new safety feature. Active safety is also improved, thanks to new electronic devices installed (as standard) as part of the driver assistance system.
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) will warn the driver if the vehicle makes an unwanted departure from the lane. Thanks to a camera mounted on the windscreen, the system can recognise the road markings and will sound an alarm if the vehicle changes lane without the driver signalling.
In addition to the Electronic Vehicle Stability Control (EVSC), the Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) helps to avoid accidents caused when the driver is distracted. The system measures the distance from the vehicle in front, and calculates the time of a potential collision; a double warning system is triggered before the brakes are actuated.
In the event of a moving obstacle, the system intervenes automatically, reducing the speed to 32 km/h to avoid impact. In the case of a fixed obstacle, the system can prevent and moderate the impact by reducing the speed by 10 km/h. Warning: the AEBS does not guarantee that you will avoid collisions and it cannot eliminate the risks of driving without due care and attention.
Thanks to these new devices, the new Eurocargo MEETS the requirements OF THE NEW legislation with effect from November 2015 (Commission Regulation EU 347/2012).
The new safety features do not stop there. The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) adjusts the speed by maintaining the distance from the vehicle in front. To do this, it uses the same AEBS radar (with a range of 120 metres) to intervene automatically, first by reducing torque, then by actuating the engine brake and, finally, the service brake.
To improve driving safety and visibility, it is equipped with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as standard. Xenon headlamps are also available upon request. The steering wheel controls for audio and Bluetooth™ devices promote road safety and enable the driver to focus their attention on the road.
IVECO, HI-SCR, ¿Regeneration? No, thanks.
The new Eurocargo is the only Euro VI in its category to adopt a single after-treatment device for exhaust gases: the HI-SCR systemwith passive DPF (exclusive to IVECO). An innovative solution which reduces consumption, overheating and technical stoppages.
The HI-SCR system is simple, lightweight and efficient:
_it does not require a large cooling system (and therefore does not change the vehicle structure);
_ it uses fewer components (and fewer replacement parts) compared with the competition;
_ it weighs considerably less than the EGR+SCR solution adopted by the majority of competitor vehicles;
_ and it guarantees reduced consumption compared with the EGR+SCR versions.
The HI-SCR isthe only emission control systemwhich does not change the combustion process – because it works through fresh air intake rather than exhaust gas recirculation. This means that the combustion temperature remains high and the percentage of particulate is reduced, without the need for an active DPF. The problems of forced regeneration are eradicated at source.
This is a key benefit, not only because it increases reliability, but also because it enables unrestricted access to sensitive environments like tunnels, airports, ships and underground car parks, where the high temperatures caused by active regeneration pose a risk.
EFFICIENCY, Diesel fuel consumption reduced by up to 8%.
The new IVECO Eurocargo 2015: another step on the road to improving efficiency. The latest generation Tector 5 and 7 engines use low-viscosity engine oil which reduces friction, increases efficiency and extends the maintenance intervals.
Other special features have been introduced across the entire engine range; these features are particularly important on high-traffic missions where competitiveness depends on the cost of ownership:
_ the electronically controlled two-speed electromagnetic fan clutch which is engaged or disengaged according to the cooling requirements;
_ the EcoRoll feature, introduced on the 12-speed gearbox, takes advantage of the vehicle’s inertia and automatically shifts the gearbox in/out of neutral to reduce consumption in various situations (e.g. downhill slopes);
_ the EcoSwitch (available on all 6- to 12-speed automated gearboxes) reprograms the gear change logic for maximum efficiency. When switched on by the driver, the EcoSwitch feature activates the speed limiter, deactivates the kick-down function, and only authorises automatic gear changes
Thanks to these new devices (and the use of a new, low-viscosity rear axle oil), the new Eurocargo reduces diesel fuel consumption by up to 8% on the urban deliveries.
The new Eurocargo is available with two new four-cylinder 160 and 190 HP engines specially designed for citywork. The torque and power output has been optimised to suit the typical operating conditions of urban missions. Thanks to the new pistons, new injectors and the faster response of the new turbocharger, the compression ratio has risen from 17:1 to 18:I, improving the torque output over 1200 rpm by approximately 8%. The two engines now reach torques of 680 Nm (for the 160 Hp) and 700 Nm (for the 190 Hp), reaching maximum power at 2200 rpm instead of 2500 rpm.
All this helps to significantly lower consumption in the urban cycle and during acceleration.
The engines on the new Eurocargo are Tector 5 four-cylinder 4.5-litre and Tector 7 six-cylinder 6.7-litre diesel engines. The range includes seven power levels from 160 to 320 Hp, with a maximum torque of 1100 Nm, completed with a CNG engine delivering 750 Nm of torque and 204 Hp.
These engines are mated to 6- or 9- speed manual gearboxes, 6- or 12-speed automated or automatic gearboxes with torque converter
The exclusive IVECO HI-SCR after-treatment system is lightweight and efficient, and eliminates regeneration downtimes compared with competitor vehicles equipped with the EGR+SCR solution.
The regeneration of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is passive, continuous and automatically managed entirely by the vehicle: this means that no action is required by the driver, there is no need to make periodic technical stops and the components are not subject to heat stress, all of which increases the reliability of parts.
SUSTAINABILITY. The natural solution for the environment.
IVECO continues to develop its alternative fuel range with the new Eurocargo Natural Power CNG – COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS.
The leader since 1995, with a total of 13,000 vehicles sold in Europe, IVECO is the only manufacturer to offer a full line-up of CNG vehicles for freight and passenger transport. Light, medium and heavy duty vehicles with minimal environmental impact, which now represent the new benchmark in sustainability
CNG is the most environmentally-friendly fuel commercially available: the only real alternative to automotive diesel fuel, with 3500 CNG distribution facilities operating in Europe.
IVECO CNG engine emissions are characterised by reduced NOx, the total absence of lead compounds and aromatic hydrocarbons and a 95% reduction in particulates compared with diesel. This environmentally-friendly performance is already better than the Euro VI standard, stages B + C
With CNG costing slightly less than diesel across Europe, customers could save up to 25%.
The new Eurocargo Natural Power is available in versions from 11 to 16 t, with a six-cylinder engine offering increased torque of 750 Nm and increased power output of 204 Hp, mated to a 9-speed manual or to an automatic gearbox with torque converter. The vehicle’s features and transport capacity are identical to the diesel versions: the cylinders are fitted next to the side members so they do not take up cargo space. Maximum range 400 km.
The new Eurocargo Natural Power is particularly at home in major cities – its low emissions mean it is allowed to drive in restricted traffic zones and its quiet operation (5 dB quieter than diesel) makes it perfect for night-time work.
RELIABILITY. A workmate you can rely on.
The new Eurocargo appeals to customers because of its reliability and robustness: two qualities which stem from the chassis, derived from heavy haulage and designed to be durable and to withstand higher stresses (e.g. an unbalanced load or a sudden change of direction).
To adapt to any type of mission, the new Eurocargo offers many different types of suspension: parabolic, semi-elliptical leaf spring and air suspensions. Air suspensions are controlled by an ECAS (Electronically Controlled Air Suspension) system, which guarantees a constant vehicle position regardless of the load level. They can be fitted to the rear axle or to both axles.
The front and rear axles and braking system guarantee the mechanical characteristics remain reliable over time. The braking system is air-hydraulic on the 6- to 10-tonne range and full air on the 11- to 19-tonne range. All 4×2 versions are equipped with disc brakes as standard.
An exhaust flap has been introduced with the HI-SCR technology, which acts to quickly bring exhaust gases to the right temperature. This device also helps improve engine braking power (thereby improving the vehicle’s overall braking capacity).
TELEMATICS. Stay connected even on the move.
Models of tablets, navigation systems, and smartphones are always changing so quickly. And that’s not all: they contain ever-increasing amounts of personal information. That is why, instead of featuring a special interface, the new Eurocargo is pre-configured to integrate seamlessly with the device selected by the driver
The dashboard is pre-configured for a universal support to be installed; two 5 V USB sockets are positioned next to this support.
Staying connected on the road means you can keep in touch with the rest of the world: nowadays, this is an essential work tool, which the new Eurocargo offers its customers.
Thanks to the IVECO UTP (Unified Telematics Platform) Telematics Box, now available as a factory-fitted option, the new Eurocargo is pre-configured for the remote connection and supply of telematic services.
_ basic telematic services (GPS positioning detection, geo-fencing, timer on the steering wheel, tachograph/consumption/driver evaluation data transmission);
TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP. Helping you save up to 5 %
The new Eurocargo is a partner which helps you save money and savethe planet: the best choice for robustness, versatility, productivity – and also for total cost of ownership.
_ The product’s new look and high quality (in terms of technology and features) further boost its residual value.
_ The reliability of the IVECO HI-SCR helps minimise maintenance costs (especially downtime).
_ The Tector 5 160 and 190 Hp engines improve performance and efficiency at low speeds (typical of urban missions).
_ Combining these engines with new efficiency-enhancing solutions such as EcoRoll and EcoSwitch can reduce diesel fuel consumption by up to 8% in the urban cycle.
Overall, the new Eurocargo represents an improvement of upto 5% in the total cost of ownership compared withthe previous model.
VERSATILITY, An efficient partner for every task.
From deliveries to construction, from refrigerated transport to urban services, the new Eurocargo isthe most versatile vehicle in its category – and is also the easiest to body. Made from high-yield-strength steel, the chassis frame can accommodate body lengths of 4265 to 10,175 mm; the side members are parallel along the entire length and are pre-configured to simplify assembly of the superstructure.
The Eurocargo offers three different cab types to satisfy the requirements of every job.
_ The day cab offers the best balance between overall body width and length, and is best suited to daily work in major cities.
_ The sleeper cab is available in a standard or high roof version; this is designed to provide overnight accommodation and is equipped with one or two bunks. Two illuminated boxes (accessible from both inside and outside) provide 260 litres of additional space for storing bags or tools. The outer door can be opened using an electric control.
_ The crew cab (with standard roof) is designed to transport the whole crew plus tools and equipment: it can accommodate six passengers in addition to the driver, and is particularly well suited for use in construction and fire prevention services.
In total, the new Eurocargo is available in 11,000 factory versions, resulting from the combination of its product variants: two types of drive, 14 gross vehicle weight levels and seven power outputs, 12 gearboxes, 15 wheelbases and three types of cab with two roofs – in addition to a wide range of suspension systems, axle ratios, axles and PTOs (up to 1100 Nm).
THE NEW IVECO EUROCARGO 4×4
The 4×2 version of the new Eurocargo is accompanied by a permanent all-wheel drive version with gross vehicle weight of 11.5 and 15 t and wheelbases from 3240 to 4150 mm.
Available with a day cab or sleeper cab with a standard roof, the new Eurocargo 4×4 is equipped with front towing jaw (as standard) and special protection for off-road driving: steel bumpers, headlamp grilles, radiator guard and two retractable access steps. It is available with parabolic or semi-elliptical leaf spring suspension and in versions with single or twin wheels.
Tector 7 engines are available on power variants from 220, 250 to 280 Hp, mated with 6-speed manual gearboxes. A PTO can be integrated into the gearbox.
The new Eurocargo 4×4 also offers a version with an automatic gearbox.
The new Eurocargo 4×4 is equipped with double reduction drive axles. The 2-speed torque transfer box/reducer provides traction to the front and rear shafts via the longitudinal differential. The three differentials feature locks which are operated by the driver (as standard) to guarantee traction even under low-grip conditions. The electro-pneumatic system automatically disengages the locks when the vehicle speed exceeds 25 km/h.
The impressive steering angle (of 40 to 48 degrees, depending on the tyres used) ensures manoeuvrability even on urban building sites.
