Iveco has revealed the new Daily, which features new driver assistance systems, a telematics device and more efficient engines.
The Advanced Emergency Braking System and City Brake PRO prevents collisions at speeds below 30mph and mitigates the impact at higher speeds.
In urban missions, Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist enables the Daily to follow the vehicle ahead in slow-moving traffic up to a standstill.
There is also ProActive Lane Keeping Assist, which prevents the van from involuntarily drifting out of the lane with an active steering support.
New LED lights provide a much sharper beam that carries further, improving visibility and obstacle perception by 15%, further enhancing safety in low-light conditions.
City Mode increases the power steering assistance, reducing the effort to turn the wheel by up to 70%, making it easy to manoeuvre in city streets.
The New Daily’s connectivity puts the vehicle in direct contact with Iveco’s Control Room, providing real-time data. This enables specialists to maximise the vehicle’s uptime by conducting proactive diagnostics and taking preventative actions, planning maintenance and service interventions efficiently in order to optimise the number of visits to the workshop, minimising stoppages.
In addition, the Remote Assistance Service makes it possible to carry out dataset changes, diagnostics sessions and even software uploads remotely Over The Air, avoiding stops at the dealer’s workshop.
The real-time data provided by the Daily also enables Iveco to develop new tailormade financing offers. These plans take into consideration the fluctuations in the customer’s operations, which may mean the vehicle is used less than originally expected, and adjust payments accordingly. The data also enables IVECO to make accurate forecasts of the vehicle’s use and develop maintenance contracts that closely match the customer’s operation.
A telematics solutions helps owners-drivers and fleet managers optimise efficiency. The MyDaily portal, also accessible through the MyDaily app, enables vehicle owners to monitor their Daily from their desktop computer or on the move from their mobile device. They can analyse its performance and fuel consumption, as well as the driver’s driving style. The Daily will also send regular Smart Reports on the vehicle’s key parameters with suggestions on how to improve the driving style to save fuel.
Two engines are offered: a 2.3-litre diesel with rated power ranging from 116 to 156hp and a 3.0-litre diesel or natural gas unit, with increased performance ranging from 160 to 210hp.
Iveco says the new Daily is 10% more efficient than its predecessor and has up to 10% lower maintenance costs.
Prices and technical data have yet to be revealed.
