Iveco has announced a range of enhancements to its eDaily electric van. It was launched earlier this year, with customers able to specify their vehicles with one, two or three 37kWh units to balance range with payload and journey patterns.
It has now been upgraded to offer the option of a fourth battery pack on 72C 7.2-tonne GVW 5100mm chassis cab models, giving a total 148kWh of power and enabling a WLTP range of up to 149 miles.
Debuted as the Italian commercial vehicle maker also launches its S-eWay electric HGV, the three- and four-battery eDaily models also get faster 115kW rapid charging, enabling 62 miles of range in 20 minutes. Chassis cab variants also gain the flexibility of an optional side-mounted charging port.
The eDaily’s 15kW ePTO capabilities have also been extended, offering 50kW of power in high-voltage and mechanical ePTO forms. The extra power means it can now be used to power equipment in specialised missions such as gully cleaning, firefighting, snow ploughing, rubbish collection and more.
Meanwhile, the eDaily 42S with its 4.25-tonne GVW – which can be driven on a category B passenger car driving licence under the current derogation – can now be optioned with Air-Pro pneumatic suspension, delivering a smooth ride while also reducing body roll. Air-Pro also comes with a memory function which can adjust the vehicle chassis height for unloading and save it via the memory function.
Other changes include the arrival of Smart Routing features, either via the new infotainment or the eDaily Routing app. These match the arrival of a dynamic digital driver’s display and new multimedia screen on the standard Daily which enable the driver to check the predicted range, with the system advising on when intermediate charging is needed, taking into account the route and range estimations via AI.
Iveco has also enhanced functionality with new eRemote controls that manage the vehicle’s settings via the Easy Daily App or through the Iveco On portal. Remote functions include checks on Hi-Matic settings and Eco Mode, which can be locked on to ensure maximised fuel efficiency during operations. This feature also enables remote control of ADAS settings.
