Iveco launches Daily Vendor to deliver internet shopping

IN a bid to capture extra sales in the anticipated rise in demand caused by the internet shopping boom, Iveco has launched the Daily Vendor. The new model features a hydraulic sliding side door and massive load space and is designed specifically for door-to-door deliveries in busy urban areas.

Different versions have loading capacities of between 12 and 17.2 cubic metres depending on the wheelbase or roof height and payload exceeds 2,700 kg. Inside, a great deal of thought has gone into the ergonomics of the van, which offers a completely unobstructed passage between the cabin and the load area.

It means a driver can enter the load area straight from his or her seat to pick up a particular parcel. The high roof height means no bending while this operation is taking place. The electric door can either be opened via a push button on the inside and outside or by a remote control which also activates the locks. The door is all glass, aiding visibility, and a low bottom step adds practicality. Available as an option is a unique navigation system with one CD-ROM for the whole of Europe. The Vendor will be launched in the UK later this year. As yet, no prices have been announced.
