IVECO LAUNCHES NEW DAILY MINIBUS
The New Daily Minibus will be available in a variety of versions to meet the needs of customers who operate in the passenger transport sector, both in urban areas and for rapid transfers outside of urban networks. Iveco Bus proposes the New Daily as the result of an important design project that goes well beyond solutions to comply with Euro VI imposed emission levels and has led to the creation of an entirely new vehicle, combining the well-known qualities of the Daily with the competence of a leader in the collective passenger transport sector.
The entire production process has been optimised thanks to new methods and control systems, but above all thanks to the introduction of a new production line entirely dedicated to Minibus production at the Suzzara, Italy plant,
The new generation of Daily Minibuses offer all the advantages of the New Daily, which include new architecture, a new range of longer wheelbases, new interior and exterior designs, a new driving position with ergonomic dashboard, all in four different versions for four main types of missions: interurban, tourism, urban and school.
The on-board safety and well-being of the driver and passengers is a main priority for Iveco Bus. The driver can rely on safety systems, such as ESP and LDWS, and on a level of comfort and driveability that are second to none. The new driver’s seat with lowered seating position and smaller steering wheel allow for improved vehicle handling.
Passenger comfort is guaranteed thanks to new and modern interiors, designed to make even the longest journey pleasant with improvements to climate control systems and ventilation, along with the further allocation of air suspensions for a smoother ride.
Among the main new features, the new top-of-the-range 6.1 tonne version with a longer 4,100 mm wheelbase seats up to 22 passengers, plus the driver and a chaperone / tour guide (this is the most that a vehicle in this category is able to carry) and 30% extra space in the luggage compartment compared to previous versions.
The New Daily Minibus is available in the versions Line, Tourys, Citys and Pop:
Daily Line is the most versatile version, ideal for interurban routes or as a school bus. It is available in three different lengths with two types of doors, different passenger layouts, seats up to 22 passengers and comes with specific optionals such as a wheelchair ramp.
The Daily Tourys is the touring bus version that is similar to a grand tourism vehicle both in terms of comfort and style. The “family feeling” between this version and the range of large tourism buses from Iveco Bus is even more evident. The vehicle features all new floor and ceiling trim and comes with other features such as LED lights and individual climate control vents.
The Daily Citys is the model exclusively designed for transport in small urban and suburban areas. Also available as a CNG version, the vehicle features a double central door and a rear door with wheelchair access thanks to a dedicated ramp.
Daily Pop is the school bus dedicated to the Italian market. Available in diesel and CNG versions, it has a maximum seating capacity of 45 passengers for primary school and 32 for high school use.
