IVECO has delivered a 4.2-ton eDaily light commercial vehicle with a 190-hp electric motor to Chrono Express, a company engaged in logistics activities related to Iveco Group. The delivery takes on special significance because it is the first electric vehicle acquired on a pay-per-use basis from GATE, the alternative drive vehicle rental company recently created within Iveco Group. The eDaily won this year’s Sustainable Truck of the Year in the Van category.

IVECO eDaily, part of a sustainable ecosystem

The eDaily is a sustainable and versatile zero-emission vehicle with modular batteries, capable of storing a total of up to 111 kWh of energy, 105 of which can be used for traction. In addition, thanks in part to formulas such as GATE’s, the eDaily is a sustainable ecosystem in which product, infrastructure and services are digitally interconnected to ensure excellent mission and environmental performance.

We are proud to be able to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and promote GATE as an ever-expanding service platform designed to meet all of our customers’ needs, of course starting with Chrono Express”, commented Michael May, Head of GATE.
