Australian audiences will get a first glimpse of IVECO’s new fully electric eDaily model at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show, with a validation unit to be exhibited prior to its local testing.
The IVECO eDaily, the electric twin of the Daily, will be the first electric vehicle to be offered in ANZ markets.
The show vehicle is a 70C cab chassis with 4350mm wheelbase, 7.2-tonne Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) and three batteries.
Multiple charging options are available for the IVECO eDaily including a standard onboard 11kW AC charger, an optional 22kW on-board AC charger, or up to an 80kW DC fast charger.
Depending on battery options, full charge times of between three and nine hours can be reached using the on-board chargers. More than 80 per cent charge can be achieved in under 1.5 hours of using DC fast charging.
The loaded drive range for local IVECO eDaily models will be up to 300 kilometres, among the highest of any electric truck or large van available.
In other markets, the IVECO eDaily range is available in several van and cab chassis variants and with one, two or three batteries depending on configuration – with combined battery capacities of up to 111kWh producing power and torque of up to 140kW and 400Nm.
IVECO ANZ Managing Director, Michael May, said IVECO has a long and successful history in bringing alternative fuelled models to the market.
“The eDaily is a key element of IVECO’s product development strategy and transition roadmap as it pursues its decarbonisation targets through a multi-energy approach that includes a strong focus on electric propulsion,” he said.
“The IVECO eDaily is already showing strong acceptance in Europe where it’s ideal for congested city environments; we believe it will also excel in these conditions locally, particularly in back to base operations.”
In developing and rolling out the eDaily range in Australia, IVECO has partnered with several leading tertiary institutions, Government departments and private enterprises to assist with training, tooling and to explore recharging opportunities.
IVECO will also call on the expertise of its local engineering department, who will play a major role in validating the new range using facilities within its Customer and Innovation Centre (CIC).
