DAF Trucks has unveiled all-electric versions for its new generation DAF XD and XF truck ranges at the IAA Transportation 2022 in Hanover.
These innovative trucks feature completely new modular drivelines for ‘zero emission’ ranges from 200 to over 500 kilometres on a single charge. The DAF XD Electric and DAF XF Electric will become available as tractor and rigid models and can be ordered now.
To optimally tailor the New DAF XD and XF Electric to the customer’s needs, the efficient and reliable PACCAR e-motors deliver outputs from 170 to 350 kW (230 to 480 hp). In combination with battery packs of up to 5 strings, fully electric ranges can even exceed 500 kilometres, depending on circumstances and application.
The New Generation XD and XF Electric can be fast charged with powers up to 325 kW, allowing a 3-string battery pack to be boosted from 0 to 80% of its capacity in just over 45 minutes. Available as an option is an on-board charger with the capability of alternating current (AC) charging up to 22 kW. This provides flexibility to operate the vehicle where DC chargers are unavailable.
The innovative DAF XD and XF Electric trucks will be assembled on a brand-new production line in Eindhoven. The advanced DAF Electric Truck Assembly will start series production in 2023.
