Tesco supermarket expands delivery fleet with IVECO

The first unit of 151 eDaily chassis cabs has been delivered to Tesco, with the remaining units to join its electric IVECO fleet later in the year.

IVECO has delivered the first eDaily to Tesco, the UK’s leading supermarket, which is taking forward its decarbonisation journey. This two-battery vehicle, which is joining Tesco’s home delivery fleet, has been specified to optimise payload and range. A further 150 eDaily two-battery models will join the expanding Tesco EV fleet towards the end of 2024.

This first new eDaily (42S14E) enables zero-emissions deliveries to customers via its innovative modular battery setup. Its electric motor efficiently provides strong performance with 140kW and 400Nm of torque deployable. Capable of rapid charging at 80kW, up to 100 km of range can be reached in just 30 minutes, while a 22kW onboard charger enables Tesco to maximise charging from AC chargers at local stores. The refrigerated body can take full advantage of the 15kW e-PTO to cool perishable goods while on delivery missions. A second 12V e-PTO provides low-voltage power for additional cooling, creating a totally self-sustaining zero-emissions vehicle. Tesco is also benefiting from the eDaily’s advanced connectivity features that can control the vehicle’s driving modes, remotely selecting the best for optimised performance and efficiency.

The Daily has been a familiar sight on the nationwide Tesco delivery fleet since 2010. Its class-leading turning circle, which makes manoeuvring effortless, is a strong asset for drivers frequently operating in urban missions. Drivers will find the transition to the all-electric eDaily easy, as they are specified with IVECO’s Hi-Matic automatic transmission, also featured in the fleet’s diesel vehicles. ?
