The revised and long-awaited version of the Daily Electric will be introduced later this year. In the meantime, IVECO (here’s the report of Iveco Group’s stock listing day, on January 3rd) celebrates a couple of very relevant milestones achieved at the Spanish plant located in Valladolid. The production of the iconic Daily light truck and van in Valladolid turns 30 this year. Moreover, the Spanish plant released the 700,000th vehicle produced so far. The IVECO plant manufactures both cab chassis of the Daily light commercial vehicle and the cab of the IVECO S-WAY heavy vehicle range. Huge figures, indeed, for a truck that is going to renew itself very soon.
A bit of history of the Valladolid plant
As confirmed by the manufacturer, the Valladolid factory, built in 1955, was acquired by IVECO on 13 September 1990 after being owned by companies such as FADA, SAVA and finally Pegaso. From that moment, it began production of the Daily model. It currently produces 140 Daily vehicles (a model with more than 6,000 product variants) and 150 IVECO S-WAY cabs a day. The IVECO factory in Valladolid employs some 1,100 people.
Jose Manuel Jaquotot, manager of the IVECO factory in Valladolid, stated: «The first Daily came off the production line on 11 March 1992 with the eagerness of someone starting a new life project. It has been 30 years of effort, enthusiasm, and hard work, which have maintained the success of the Daily as a product, and of the IVECO Valladolid factory as a successful industrial project which that has provided stability and quality of life to so many families in Valladolid. In addition to this important event, in January we reached the milestone of 700,000 Daily vehicles produced in Valladolid. We will continue working to honour those who have gone before us and toachieve another 30 years of success for the Valladolid factory, and for the IVECO Daily in Spain and in Europe».
Fresh news on the Daily Electric quite soon
«The more than three million Daily vehicles manufactured on three continents and travelling the roads of 110 countries are testament to the popularity of this product range and its unique ability to quickly adapt to the specific needs of customers around the world», commented IVECO in the official press release. We’ll keep you up-to-date on the release of the zero-emission version of the well-known light truck.
