NETV LAUNCHES NEW IVECO DAILY RANGE
Release date: 16 October 2006 NETV LAUNCHES NEW IVECO DAILY RANGE North East Truck & Van (NETV), the local Iveco distributor in Billingham, Teesside, is launching Iveco’s eagerly awaited new Daily light commercial vehicle range today (October 16), benefiting from a host of new features including an all- new engine line-up, uprated braking system and extensive safety features to further improve the driving experience. For the driver, the new Daily offers a restyled cab with a slick dash-mounted gearlever, together with newly profiled more supportive seats, and additional interior storage space. Daily can also be specified with a load area lighting system and parking sensors to aid reversing, together with the most up-to-date Bluetooth mobile phone technology. The complete Daily range now extends to over 2,500 possible configurations with models available between 3.2 and 6.5 tonnes, ensuring there is a suitable van or chassis cab for the needs of every light commercial vehicle operator. Available from any of NETV’s dealerships in Billingham, Blaydon, Carlisle, Hull, Immingham, Lincoln, Scunthorpe and York, it includes the largest panel van available to buy on the market - offering a load carrying capacity of 17.2 m³. Sandy McDonald, Managing Director of NETV, the largest independent Iveco distributor in the UK, explains: “With the arrival of the new Daily there is no doubt that we now have one of the widest and most state-of-the-art light commercial vehicle ranges available.” /more North East Truck & Van Head Office Cowpen Bewley Road Haverton Hill Billingham Tel. +44 (0)1642 370555 Cleveland Fax. +44 (0)1642 370021 TS23 4EX www.netvltd.co.uk NETV launches new Iveco Daily range / page 2 “The Daily has long been our best selling product and we expect the new model to prove popular with customers ranging from large national fleets to independent local tradesman,” he adds. One of the most notable changes with new Daily is a revised line-up of engines, all of which are Euro 4 compliant. This sees the choice between 2.3 and 3.0 litre units offering increased power and torque output, with the top-of-the-range 3.0 litre HPT engine delivering an impressive 176 hp with 400 Nm of torque between 1,250 and 3,000 rev/min, giving it best in class performance. The new Daily also features a revised cab, styled by the world-famous Italian automotive design house Giugiaro. Amongst the most significant changes are improved driver ergonomics and ease of movement across the cabin, thanks to the dash-mounted gearshift. New seats make Daily even more comfortable and provide greater support, whilst the interior is spacious and practical to manage thanks to the increased amount of storage available. Additional safety features have also been built into the new model, with new larger ventilated brake disks helping to bring a typical 3.5-tonne S class van from 60 to 0 mph in just 42 metres. All new Dailys are equipped with ABS / EBD and, in addition to a driver’s airbag, which is standard for people carrier MPV models and higher power vans, vehicles can also now be fitted with passenger-side and window airbags. Vehicles are available to test drive at any of NETV’s dealerships, spanning the North and North East of England.
