The transportation industry is experiencing a significant shift toward the electrification of vehicles and a need for robust charging infrastructure. To answer this call, Iveco, a leader in electric transportation, has partnered with energy giant E.ON to upgrade the charging infrastructure ahead of the launch of IVECO's latest electric transport vehicle, the Iveco eDAILY.
As the market share for electric vehicles continues to increase, the demand for reliable and efficient charging solutions has become more critical than ever. With the recent release of IVECO's new electric transporter, the eDAILY, the timing for the partnership with E.ON couldn't be more perfect. The joint venture will provide integrated solutions for IVECO's customers, where E.ON delivers and supports charging stations for the Iveco eDAILY across Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, while Iveco provides the vehicle.
According to Anders Nilsson, Sales Director for Iveco Sweden, the market is heading towards electric transportation, and the trend will only continue in the coming years. Despite the positive forecasts for the electric vehicle market, the lack of charging infrastructure remains a significant challenge for the transportation industry. The collaboration between Iveco and E.ON is an essential step towards improving the charging network in the Nordics, providing reliable and efficient charging solutions for IVECO's customers.
Christian Halleløv, Head of Global eTransport at E.ON, expresses his delight in collaboration with IVECO, explaining that the joint venture will help make the transition to electric vehicles easier for IVECO's customers. The partnership will offer customers three packages tailored to meet their unique needs. The packages include solutions for adding or removing batteries to optimize mileage and load capacity.
The Iveco eDAILY offers a complete range of models, from 3.5-7.2 tonnes, and can pull up to 3.5 tonnes of trailer weight, making it the only electric transporter capable of such weight. The vehicle can be equipped with up to three batteries, offering up to 300km range, and is compatible with Iveco eDAILY charger, which supports charging empty 22 kW AC and 300 kW DC.
The collaboration between IVECO and E.ON aims to remove any worries from IVECO's customers by providing tailor-made solutions and expert support throughout the charging process. With the joint venture, IVECO is well-positioned to provide its customers with an integrated electrical solution in Scandinavia, making the transition to electric transportation easier than ever.
