With its new Euro VI engines providing more power, lower fuel consumption, best in class total cost of ownership (TCO), increased comfort for both driver and passengers, advanced connectivity and unlimited versatility to meet all passenger transport needs, the New Daily Minibus is the perfect business partner.

The experience accrued by IVECO BUS in the passenger transport sector, along with the traditional high-level performance of the Daily, make this vehicle a reliable travelling companion, offering surprising comfort and drivability, as well as guaranteeing efficiency and impressive performance.

The extensive range of Daily Minibus Euro VI models offers a solution for a wide variety of passenger transport missions: tourist to travel in comfort and style, intercity with a category-leading passenger capacity and school buses specifically designed for student transport.

The 6.5-ton version at the top of the range is the best standard vehicle in its class in the market, with a capacity of up to 22 passengers and ample luggage space.

Like the other models in the Daily family, the New Daily Minibus is available with a choice of Euro VI Heavy Duty-approved Diesels, an ultra-green Natural Power methane engine and an eco-friendly fully-electric engine, a silent motor with zero emissions.

In addition, the Daily Euro VI Minibus can also be fitted with the innovative 8-speed Hi-Matic automatic transmission - the best in class in its category in every mission, from city traffic to long distance - to provide absolute driving pleasure and enhanced safety while driving comfortably.

A real novelty is the now possible fitting of the Telma retarder with the Hi-Matic automatic gearbox, a winning combination which enhances safety on hilly and mountainous roads.

With its new front grille creating a horizontal line linking the headlamps and giving fluidity to the vehicle design, the Daily Minibus Euro VI offers a complete range in terms of size – lengths ranging from 6m up to 7.5m – and customization, with an extensive range of options both for the mechanics of the vehicle and the interior fittings.

The bodywork has been completely overhauled, while the supporting chassis has remained unaltered: the solid, robust and durable base of the Daily Minibus. Its strength lies in its supporting structure, with “C” side members in special steel: an exclusive feature in the sector, which makes the Daily Minibus unique among car-based vehicles. The use of increasingly thick bodywork, which in turn increases the load capacity, allows for weights and performance to be optimised, obtaining category-leading results. With its outstanding load capacity up to 6.5t, no other vehicle in the category offers the load capacity of the Daily.

The Daily Minibus Euro VI ensures automobile-like ergonomics and driver’s comfort thanks to the redesigned driver area. The new seat features a lowered seating point (by 15 mm) while the steering wheel is now 20 mm smaller and 7° more vertical, improving comfort and handling.

With 40 mm more glass, which improves visibility by 4°, the new windscreen increases the driver’s field of vision.

The controls have been positioned in an ideal layout to improve handling, whilst the new dashboard now contains wider and more practical and easily accessible storage compartments. The climate control system boasts higher efficiency and soundproofing to help avoid driver fatigue, even during longer and more difficult missions. The functional dashboard introduces new key features designed to create a connected professional workstation.

The safety devices fitted on the Daily Minibus, such as the ESP9, the LDWS system which alerts the driver if he or she strays out of lane, and the cruise control function, make travelling on board even more enjoyable and relaxing.

The rear pneumatic suspension, available as an optional feature, further increases the superior comfort of the Daily Minibus. Electronic Stability Program comes as standard on all versions. Other electronic safety devices, like the Lane Departure Warning System and the rear camera, are available on request.

Daily Tourys : Tourist mission for traveling with comfort and style

The Daily Tourys is synonymous with comfort and style for tourist buses, in a compact model.

Thanks to the reclining seats, the easy-to-reach lowered luggage compartment with a maximum storage capacity of 2.5 m3 and new floor and roof trimming, the “family feeling” is even more immediate with the range of IVECO BUS tourist buses.

New high-level standard features such as LED lights and individual air conditioning vents can be complemented with a series of even more exclusive options.

The new Iveco Multi-media system makes travelling even more comfortable and enjoyable for both the driver - thanks to the sat-nav built into the dashboard and the reversing camera - and for passengers, who can make use of an LCD monitor.

Among the other equipment available are the USB ports in every seat, the drinks fridge and the coffee machine beside the driver: the perfect companions for long journeys.

The innovative 8-speed Hi-Matic automatic gearbox comes as a standard equipment on Daily Tourys. The Hi-Matic gearbox is designed to ensure maximum performance, minimal running costs, unbeatable comfort and superior gear changes, along with reduced fuel consumption. Thanks to its 8 gear ratios, gear change is quicker and more precise when compared to standard 6-gear models, because it ensures that only the correct gear is engages at whatever engine speed, in less than 200 milliseconds. Electronic control allows for two operating modes, which are functional to the specific mission needs: ECO, for smooth, low-speed gear shifting to enhance comfort and keep fuel consumption low, POWER, for faster, higher speed gear shifting to achieve more precise gear engagement and a sporty driving style.

Daily Line : Spacious, versatile, efficient

Ideal for intercity journeys and with a category-leading passenger capacity to help keep running costs low, the Daily Line offers a configuration to suit every need.

Indeed, the model comes in a choice of three lengths, with two different door types and various passenger seat layouts: from 16 to 22 spaces. This makes it easy to customise the vehicle according to requirements.

The range of fittings is equally wide, with the option to add destination display boards, ticket machine pre-installations and request stop buttons.

Thanks to the rear access ramp and the quick-removal seats on the back rows, available on request, the Daily Line facilitates access for those with disabilities.

The Daily Line also comes in the CNG model, for reduced environmental impact. The ultra-green Natural Power methane 136 HP engine is Euro VI Heavy Duty-approved.

Daily Electric : The zero-emissions minibus

Perfect for use as a shuttle bus and in central urban environments, the Daily Electric incorporates all of the improvements of the Daily Minibus, and introduces a range of new features, completely overhauling both hardware and software. The specially-designed new high-density batteries and high-power supercapacitor allows the vehicle to accumulate energy, and the integrated design of the latter allows for the following: + Improved efficiency, + Reduced energy consumption and + Increase in battery life.

Optimized power management has led to a reduction in charging times of up to 2 hours for quick charges. The Daily Electric adopts “mode 3” of the European standard, and offers flexible charging options - it is compatible both with all public electric charging stations, as well as home or private charging systems. The minibus is available with 16 or 19 seats and can also be equipped with wheelchair space. It is equipped with 2 or 3 high-density batteries, combined with supercapacitors.

Automation of the new-generation robotic assembly lines and a production line dedicated to the Daily minibuses at the Suzzara plant lead to higher efficiency and top quality production process.

Iveco Bus has sold 2,310 Daily minibuses in Europe in 2015, reaching a 12 % market share, with leading positions in Italy (47%), France (31%) and Spain (31%). The proportion between built up vehicles and body-builded ones is 60% - 40%. Around 50 bodybuilders are working on Daily
