The vehicle is also the first in its segment to comply with Euro 6D/Temp emissions standards.
The manufacturer says its new model delivers on performance and sustainability, with fuel efficiency and low total cost of ownership, as well as raising the bar on connectivity.
The full set of advanced driver assistance systems is aimed at helping drivers in urban operations. The advanced emergency braking system and City Brake PRO prevent collisions at speeds below 50kph. City Brake PRO, in particular, is designed to prevent accidents when driving as slowly as 5kph.
A Queue Assist function will help drivers in busy traffic conditions by following the vehicle ahead in slow-moving queues, so eliminating the stress of stop-start traffic. The New Daily is the first 7.2-tonner to offer Queue Assist and City Brake PRO.
Other driver assistance features include Adaptive Cruise Control, ProActive Lane Keeping Assist, Crosswind Assist and electric parking brake.
The New Daily is also the first rear-wheel drive model in its class to offer Hill Descent Control and Traction Plus.
IVECO’s partnership with Microsoft also means the new model is packed with high-spec connectivity features. The vehicle links directly with the IVECO control room to provide real-time data, enabling proactive diagnostics and actions to minimise time off the road in the workshop. A Remote Assistance Service also makes it possible for dataset changes, diagnostics sessions and software uploads to be carried out remotely.
As well as telematics services delivered through the MyDaily portal, IVECO is also offering a fleet management solution, by Verizon Connect, on the New Daily (see link below).
The vehicle is offered with two engine options: the 2.3-litre F1A, in both light- and heavy-duty options, delivering from 115-154bhp; and the 3.0-litre F1C, with three power ratings from 158-207bhp, as well as a Natural Power (compressed natural gas) version.
IVECO says maintenance costs can be 10% lower with the New Daily, thanks to product improvements and longer oil change intervals. In addition, the vehicle has a larger oil sump, designed for long-distance missions and which extends service intervals to 60,000km.
