FPT Industrial powers the “Van of the Year 2015”
The New Iveco Daily, the third generation of Iveco’s light commercial vehicle, powered by FPT’s F1 Series engines, has been named the “International Van of the Year 2015” during the 65th edition of the Hannover International Motor Show, the largest commercial and industrial vehicle show in Europe.
The jury of the annual award, a panel of 23 leading journalists from major international commercial vehicle publications, elected the New Daily because of its excellent range with a broad choice of powertrains, as well as its contribution to the standards of efficiency and the sustainability of transport of goods by road with respect to environment and safety of people.
F1 Series engines, equipping the winning vehicle, considerably contribute to the safeguard of the environment and to the vehicles efficiency; available in both a 2.3 (F1A) and 3 (F1C) litre displacement, these four cylinder engines guarantee class-leading performance with outputs ranging from 81 to 150 kW and torque from 270 to 470 Nm and long service intervals. The F1C unit is also available in a CNG-powered version with power output of 100 kW and torque output of 350 Nm.
The engines are available both in a Euro5b+ version with EGR or in a Euro VI version with a mixed EGR + SCR system. Due to the compact design of the after treatment, the New Iveco Daily complies with the latest emission regulations without impacting on carrying space.
“We are very proud to equip the ‘Van of the Year 2015’ with our state-of-the-art engines,” affirmed Giovanni Bartoli, FPT Industrial’s COO; “this is the second important recognition achieved in 2014 by FPT Industrial, after winning with our Cursor 16 the prestigious “Diesel of the Year” award.”
