Widespread British supermarket chain Tesco has received the first of 151 IVECO eDaily cabs ordered with the aim of reducing emissions from its fleet. The configuration chosen by Tesco is one with two battery packs, designed to find the right compromise between payload and range allowed by the vehicle. The remaining eDaily trucks will be delivered by the end of 2024, according to the Italian manufacturer.

Tesco turns to the eDaily to make its fleet more sustainable

The Daily has been part of Tesco’s fleet since 2010. Now, the electric version of IVECO’s light commercial vehicle, awarded the Sustainable Truck of the Year 2024 in the Van category, features an efficient, high-performance electric motor capable of delivering 140 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque. Thanks to 80 kW fast charging, the new eDaily can reach a range of 100 km with just 30 minutes of charging, while an on-board 22 kW charger allows for maximum charging from chargers.

The refrigerated configuration chosen by Tesco can take advantage of the 15 kW e-PTO to keep perishable goods cold during delivery missions. A second 12 V e-PTO provides low-voltage power for additional cooling, resulting in a fully self-sufficient, zero-emission vehicle. Tesco can also benefit from the eDaily’s advanced connectivity features that allow it to control the vehicle’s driving modes, remotely selecting the best one to optimize performance and efficiency.
