Daily Natural Power well suited to Arcese’s London fashion deliveries09 July 2018

International logistics business Arcese has taken delivery of a 6.5-tonne Daily Natural Power chassis cab, from IVECO – the first gas-powered light commercial vehicle to join its UK fleet.

The vehicle enables the operator to make unrestricted deliveries to its luxury retail customers in central London, ahead of the introduction of the ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) in 2020.

The Daily Natural Power has a box body, by Kira, with a folding tail-lift and hanging rails inside. A tracking system also helps to boost load security.

A 3.0-litre natural gas spark ignition engine delivers performance comparable to diesel, including 134bhp and up to 350Nm of torque between 1,500 and 2,730rpm.

It is also 50% quieter than diesel, making it ideal for inner city deliveries. Running on CNG, the engine produces 12% fewer NOx emissions, 76% less particulate matter and up to 95% less CO2 emissions when using biomethane.

Michele Nascetti, country manager at Arcese UK, says IVECO’s knowledge and expertise in gas vehicle technology was a key factor in the decision.

He says: “Our drivers travel into London every day so we needed a manufacturer that could quickly supply gas-powered vehicles which already meet current and future emission standards.

“IVECO is a real leader in this market and showed us why the Daily Natural Power is perfect for our operations. We’re confident this addition to our UK fleet will play a key role for the next decade.”

In operation five days a week, the vehicle will operate from Arcese’s main UK depot in Tilbury, Essex.
