Against strong competition in the 3.5-7.5t segment, Van Fleet World has awarded the Iveco Daily their 2021 Light Truck of the Year title.

Part of the annual Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards, the event celebrates excellence in the fleet sector and is judged by the publication‘s panel of experts. This is the second time the Iveco Daily has taken the win for this category having first been honoured in 2019.

“The 3500kg GVW to 7500kg GVW is a small but significant sector of the market with no shortage of competition. Daily offers the broadest weight range in the sector, a choice of diesel or natural gas power, manual or automatic transmission, as well as an array of body sizes and conversion options,” commented Van Fleet World editor, John Kendall. 

“It is one of the most flexible vehicles in its class. Revised in 2019, Daily is now available with new driver assistance systems and a range of connectivity options. At the end of last year, Iveco re-launched its Daily Driveaway conversions programme and will introduce new additions to the programme throughout 2021.”

Thomas Hilse, Iveco brand president, stated: “We are very proud that our Daily has been recognised with this award for the second time. It is a uniquely versatile vehicle that offers a superior driving experience. Its advanced connectivity unlocks a world of highly personalised services designed to help fleet owners and managers to operate their business efficiently, sustainably and profitably. It truly is a complete transport solution, capable of meeting the specific requirements of every fleet owner.”
