Iveco Vision concept set for UK debut at CV Show
The Iveco Vision is being used for the development of new technological solutions and future modes of transport, representing the natural evolution of Iveco’s Daily light commercial vehicle range.
Its creation is centred on low environmental impact mobility and a sophisticated dual energy system which self-adapts to the most suitable traction mode – one is exclusively electric, ensuring zero local emissions and low noise levels, and the other is hybrid (thermoelectric) and suitable for longer journeys and extra-urban missions.
Unique features include “see-through” front pillars to guarantee unrestricted driver visibility, plus a rear-view camera displayed on a panoramic screen above the windscreen. It uses a fully automatic system for load management and is equipped with a high-integration tablet, which communicates seamlessly with the on-board electronics.
Leading the line-up of 2015 model year product on the stand will be at least four New Dailys, fresh from Iveco’s success winning the fiercely contested International Van of the Year Award 2015.
Iveco is using the CV Show as the official UK launch platform for the all-new Hi-Matic gearbox in New Daily; the first eight-speed automatic transmission to feature in a vehicle range in this class. The ZF-built transmission has already set the industry standard in the premium car market, with customers including Maserati and Jeep – it is now set to offer Iveco operators a 4% reduction in fuel consumption and a 4kg weight saving versus the previous generation AGile gearbox.
An example of the Hi-Matic transmission will be showcased on the stand, as well as featuring in a number of key display models. One such exhibit to benefit will be a 3.5 tonne long wheelbase, high-roof, New Daily offering 19.6m2 loadspace – making it the largest panel van on the UK market. Powered by a 205hp engine, the vehicle offers approximately 14% additional load space compared with the largest previous-generation Daily van.
Iveco will also be exhibiting a high-spec 3.5 tonne “Platinum” edition New Daily van, targeted at owner-drivers and small-businesses eager to experience additional style and comfort.
There will also be two New Daily chassis cabs on show – a 3.5 tonne model with a new generation super-lightweight Luton body, and a range-topping 7.2 tonne tipper, highlighting the breadth of Iveco’s light commercial vehicle range.
Iveco will exhibit on stand 4G10 in Hall 4 at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
