DAF’s electric CF truck ready for field tests22 May 2018

DAF Trucks has announced that its CF Electric truck will begin field tests with customers later this year.

Developed in partnership with Dutch technology company VDL Groep, the CF Electric is a 4x2 tractor designed for urban distribution operations of up to 40 tonnes, where single- or double-axle semi-trailers are the standard.

The vehicle is based on DAF’s award-winning CF and uses VDL’s E-Power Technology for fully electric operation. At its core is the 210kW electric motor, powered by the lithium-ion battery pack with a current total capacity of 170kWh.

The CF Electric has a range of 100km. Fast charging of the batteries takes 30 minutes; full charging takes from 1.5 hours.

DAF Trucks president Preston Feight says: “As cities announce their intention to require zero emissions and ultra-low noise, we will make sure our customers have the optimal solutions for their success.”
