Iveco has unveiled its new S-Way and Daily models in an online launch. The S-Way features a new engine line-up that offers a three per cent fuel efficiency increase and the company’s new voice companion, Iveco Driver Pal, which enables vehicle-driver interaction using Amazon Alexa voice commands.
The new Daily also features Iveco Driver Pal, plus a new Daily Air-Pro intelligent pneumatic suspension system with smart electronic controls. The feature is said to enhance comfort, protect the vehicle’s driver and load, and adapt to road conditions and payload requirements. Its latest Euro 6-D, 2.3-litre engine also delivers fuel savings of up to six per cent and a 15 per cent boost in torque.
Through vocal commands, Iveco’s Driver Pal feature enables drivers to interact with the vehicle’s control systems, including infotainment, navigation and vehicle health status, and allows access to fleet management functions and message exchange with drivers in their area to provide additional on-route travel and traffic support.
The adaptable Air-Pro system gives the driver control of suspension characteristics. The system can reduce vehicle roll angle by up to 30 per cent in corners. Vehicle height can also be adjusted for ease of loading and unloading.
The S-Way range will include Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) versions.
