The New Daily Natural Power is a natural gas vehicle with dual CNG/petrol power.
Designed and optimised for natural gas operation, if it runs out of fuel it automatically switches over to "recovery" petrol mode (with a range of approximately 100 km).
It is available in a range of gross vehicle weights from 3.5t to 7.0t for all versions, making the New Daily uniquely versatile, with chassis cab, van, double cab and half-panel van versions. The wheelbase lengths range from 3520 mm to 4100 mm for the van (according to MTT), with a cargo capacity of up to 6190mm (unique in its class).
Iveco is the only full-range manufacturer of light commercial and heavy commercial vehicles to offer a complete methan range.
The Iveco methan vehicle line in Europe has already reached 10.000 sales, mainly used for urban transport.
Natural gas is one of the fuels of the future - but already today it represents an economical and ecological solution to mobility problems: - in terms of fuel cost, it allows savings of about 40% compared to equivalent diesels; - it has the least impact on the environment of any other internal combustion engine (total absence of sulphur, hydrocarbons and particulate in the exhaust and low CO2 emissions); - it is quiet (about 5 db less than the equivalent diesel engine); - it is a safe fuel. The auto-ignition temperature is double when compared to diesel and petrol. The tanks are tested to withstand double the operating pressure. In the event of a leak, the gas disperses rapidly because it is lighter than air. Natural gas vehicles are allowed to enter underground parking garages, board ferries and above all (thanks to the extremely low emissions) circulate in restricted traffic areas (e.g. congestion zones). The entire Iveco CNG range is type-approved to Heavy Duty Euro VI.
