The concept is intriguing
Iveco will offer visitors an insight into the future of light commercial vehicle design at the CV Show, when its striking Iveco Vision concept vehicle makes its debut in the UK.
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.
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 four per cent reduction in fuel consumption and a 4kg weight saving versus the previous generation
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.
