Iveco is reintroducing its DriveAway Options programme on Eurocargo models, with a range of bodied 7.5 tonners available to buy from dealer forecourts nationwide.Iveco has opted to bring back its DriveAway Options programme at 7.5 tonnes following the success of a similar re-launch for 3.5 tonne Dailys in 2012. For the truck range, it allows customers to buy pre-bodied vehicles and have them on the road almost immediately, with the line-up including tippers from Brit-Tipp and box and curtainside models from JC Payne.
Martin Flach, Iveco’s Product Director, says: “European Whole Vehicle Type Approval applies to all trucks above 3.5 tonnes from October 2014 and these Eurocargo DriveAway bodies will be certified during 2013, well in advance of the deadline.
“Critically for customers, it means the complete Eurocargo DriveAway vehicle can be purchased on one invoice with a two year unlimited mileage warranty covering the body and chassis. It also gives customers the assurance of quality engineering from an Iveco accredited bodybuilder – with solutions to suit the three most popular body types specified on Ivecos in this weight category.”
From launch the range will include the Eurocargo DriveAway tipper (ML75E16K), built on a 3,105 mm wheelbase. The Brit-Tipp body weighs in at 1,110 kg for a competitive payload.
The Eurocargo DriveAway box (ML75E16S) features a 4,455 mm wheelbase, with internal load space dimensions of 6,100 mm (l) x 2,400 mm (w) x 2,375 mm (h).
Completing the range is a Eurocargo DriveAway curtainsider (ML75E16), also built on a 4,455mm wheelbase and with internal load space dimensions of 6,100 mm (l) x 2,400 mm (w) x 2,384 mm (h). This JC Payne body weighs in at approximately 1,375 kg. Customers can add a 1,000 kg-plated tuck-away tail-lift as an option.
Iveco dealers nationwide will be taking delivery of stock vehicles during June and July 2013. Dealers will have the ability to quickly source available vehicles from other Iveco dealers within the network. Alternatively, any available chassis can be delivered to the respective manufacturer’s production facility and a DriveAway options body fast-tracked into production to ensure short lead times.
