DAF CFelectric
DAF Trucks is partnering with VDL to release a first series of CF Electric trucks into operation with leading customers in the course of this year.

According to a pressrelease from DAF, the vehicles feature state-of-the-art VDL E-Power Technology for zero emissions and ultra-low noise.

These field test trucks will be manufactured by DAF and the full electric installation will be completed by VDL Groep, demonstrating the strong cooperation between both companies in the field of electrification of commercial vehicles.

Up to 40 tons distribution applications

The CF Electric is a 4x2 tractor unit developed for up to 40 tons distribution applications within urban areas in which single or double axle semi-trailers are the standard.

The truck is based on DAF’s CF – ‘International Truck of the Year 2018’ – and uses VDL’s advanced E-Power Technology for fully electric operation.

The center of the intelligent powertrain is the 210 kW electric motor, which gets its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack with a current total capacity of 170 kWh. The CF Electric has a range of approximately 100 kilometers which is appropriate for high volume distribution applications.

Quick charging of the batteries can be executed in 30 minutes or a complete full charge can be accomplished in as little as 1.5 hours.

Zero emissions and ultra-low noise

“DAF has a strong history of developing innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers and we will continue to provide them the full complement of appropriate technology choices to ensure their success”, stated Preston Feight, DAF Trucks president.

“DAF was among the first manufacturers to introduce a hybrid electric distribution truck in Europe and has continued to develop hybrid and electric powertrains. 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.”

VDL Groep: commercial vehicle electrification

For the CF Electric, DAF is partnering with VDL Groep, also based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

VDL has substantial experience in commercial vehicle electrification, especially in the field of public transport buses.

“VDL has proven itself as a leader in fully electric buses for public transport and has already delivered hundreds of electric buses to public transport operators throughout Europe”, said Willem van der Leegte, president of VDL Groep.

“Partnering with DAF on this electric truck is an exciting development and represents a tremendous opportunity for two Eindhoven based technology companies to lead the electric commercial vehicle world.”
