151 new electric vehicles for to Tesco home delivery fleet

Tesco supermarket has taken the first of its 151 electric Iverco eDaily chassis cab vans to its fleet as part of the supermarket’s drive to decarbonise operations.

The two-battery eDaily has been specified to optimise payload and range, and the supermarket will add a further 150 of the models towards the end of this year.

Joining the Tesco Horwich home delivery fleet, this first new eDaily enables zero-emissions deliveries to customers via its modular battery setup. The electric motor efficiently provides strong performance with 140kW and 400Nm of torque deployable.

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.

Solomon Commercials was tasked to design a body which is able to take advantage of 15kW of e-PTO onboard power to cool perishable goods while on delivery jobs.

A second 12V e-PTO provides low-voltage power for additional cooling from the GAH Transport Refrigeration fridge, creating a totally self-sustaining zero-emissions vehicle.

Elvidas Kunigonis, Commerical Director at Solomon Commercials added: “The new breed of electric vehicles are playing a critical part of helping many of our customers achieve their objectives to decarbonise their operations.

“Our team worked to design a body that would not only optimise payload but exploited the innovative onboard power source to ensure goods would be transported in correct temperatures.”
