Iveco is enhancing the appeal of its Daily range while simultaneously cutting lead times by re-launching an improved Driveaway bodybuilder programme.
With businesses needing to adapt to rapidly changing business demands, Iveco has taken steps to help, creating a diverse range of immediately available vehicles.
Partnerships have been forged with several specialist vehicle bodybuilders to supply Iveco’s dealerships with ready-for-delivery solutions, catering for a wide range of missions. All models will be priced as complete vehicles to simplify the buying process and come with Iveco’s comprehensive unlimited mileage three-year warranty.
Vehicles offered through the Driveaway scheme include 3.5t twin-wheeled drop-sides and tippers, 3.5t single rear-wheeled Luton vans, and 7.2-tonne box and curtain-side vehicles.
Vehicles can be specified with other auxiliary equipment such as column or tuck-away tail-lifts and, gross vehicle weight-dependent, are available on a range of wheelbases from 3,450 to 5,100mm.
Power comes from either a 2.3-litre turbo-diesel available in 120 or 160hp options, with 320 or 380Nm of torque respectively. A larger 3.0-litre unit offers 160 or 210hp options, with torque figures of 380 or 470Nm. All models are available with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
All the Driveaway vehicles are based upon the Iveco Daily ‘Business’ trim line, which includes air conditioning, cruise control, front fog lights, and electrically heated & adjustable door mirrors. Luton, box and curtain-side vehicles will also be fitted with Crosswind Assist that protects against unexpected lane-changes due to strong gusts of wind.
“Relaunching this comprehensive turnkey solution allows operators to react quickly to changing demand,” commented Mike Cutts, Iveco UK light business-line director. “By working closely with bodybuilders to enrich our stock, operators can effectively walk into an Iveco dealer and drive out in a new pre-built, specialist vehicle.”
Iveco promises attractive contract hire rates, with just a single month paid upfront. Stock is available across the Iveco network.
