Tesco adds eDaily to home delivery fleet

22 March 2024

THE GROCER has onboarded the first of 151 IVECO eDaily chassis cabs.

This two-battery vehicle has been specified to optimise payload and range. A further 150 IVECO eDaily two-battery models will join the expanding Tesco EV fleet towards the end of 2024.

Joining the Tesco Horwich home delivery fleet, this first new eDaily enables zero-emissions deliveries to customers via a modular battery setup. Capable of rapid charging at 80kW, 62 miles of range can be added in 30 minutes, while a 22kW onboard charger enables Tesco to maximise charging from AC chargers at local stores.

Tesco fleet manager Rob Smallwood, says: “The delivery of the IVECO eDaily electric home delivery van to our Horwich store is an exciting step as we move towards a fully electric fleet across the UK by 2030. The extended range the eDaily offers will enable us to reach more customers in a single trip at our bigger catchments stores, and help us reach our commitment to be carbon neutral in our own operations by 2035.”
