London, November 23, 2017
The ‘International Van of the Year’ jury has chosen the Daily Blue Power from IVECO, the
commercial vehicles brand of CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI), as its 2018
champion. The win was announced at Solutrans, the international trade exhibition for road
and urban transport solutions taking place this week in Lyon, France, during an awards
ceremony attended by some 1,500 representatives from the European commercial vehicle
industry. Among the attendees was the 25-member ‘International Van of the Year’ jury panel,
which is made up of senior commercial vehicle journalists from the foremost international
trade publications. The jury is chaired by Jarlath Sweeney, Group Editor & Director at Fleet
Transport Publications Ireland.
This is the third occasion that the IVECO Daily has won the coveted award since its inception
in 1992. Chosen out of five contenders, the Daily Blue Power stood out for its technical
innovation, sustainable solutions and efficient running costs. In fact, the key motivation
behind its win was directed at how this new light commercial vehicle (LCV) range offers the
market a highly sustainable choice of efficient and viable power solutions that reduce the
operator’s environmental impact. This range comprises: the Daily Hi-Matic Natural Power,
the industry’s first compressed natural gas-powered LCV with the class-exclusive 8-speed
automatic gearbox; the Daily Euro 6 Real Driving Emissions 2020 Ready: the most advanced
diesel-powered light LCV on the market that anticipates the challenging 2020 environmental
targets with a solution verified independently by the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific
Research (TNO); and the Daily Electric, a zero-emissions vehicle designed to operate in
cities with the strictest traffic restrictions.
A model in its 40th year of production with proven success, the latest evolution of the Daily
(launched in October 2017) in its electric, natural gas and most advanced diesel versions, is
the first and only vehicle to offer three choices that anticipate European regulations that are
increasingly impacting access to urban centers. This offering is designed to secure the
customers’ investment, providing them a competitive advantage in order to develop their
businesses in an environmentally sustainable manner.
The ‘International Van of the Year’ title further recognizes IVECO’s commitment to
technology and its focus on sustainable transport through its efforts to promote clean air in
cities and reduce CO2 emissions.
