New Zealand Company Vehicle - - NEWS -

The IVECO Daily Blue Power range was crowned In­ter­na­tional Van of the Year 2018 at So­lu­trans, the in­ter­na­tional trade show for the road trans­por t in­dus­try held in Lyon, France. IVECO’S new light seg­ment van and chassis cab range fought off strong com­pe­ti­tion to take the win, just three years af­ter Daily won the 2015 ti­tle. The pres­ti­gious award is recog­ni­tion of the brand’s fo­cus on us­ing tech­nol­ogy to im­prove sus­tain­abil­ity, with judges agree­ing the Daily Blue Power “puts to­gether the main and vi­able so­lu­tions to re­duce the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of LCVS in ur­ban and subur­ban op­er­a­tions.” They high­lighted the fact that with this range “IVECO has the sus­tain­able ve­hi­cles the mar­ket is ask­ing for” and that the range’s “Elec­tric, Nat­u­ral Gas and SCR are all proven tech­nolo­gies de­vel­oped by IVECO.” The jury was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by the tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tion of IVECO’S new range and for “pre­sent­ing the new Real Driv­ing Emis­sion diesel en­gine now – three years ahead of the EU’S RDE reg­u­la­tion which will be manda­tory for vans – far ahead of any com­peti­tor” and by the ab­so­lute driv­ing plea­sure of the Daily Hi-matic Nat­u­ral Power. Jar­lath Sweeney, In­ter­na­tional Van of the Year Chair­man, summed up the jury vote: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to IVECO on the im­pres­sive de­vel­op­ment achieve­ments with the Daily Blue­power. IVECO has al­ways been on the fore­front of sus­tain­abil­ity in the LCV seg­ment. The new Daily Blue Power range con­firms this po­si­tion.”
