DAF Electric range

DAF Trucks used ITT Hub to showcase its full line up of electric vehicles including the LF Electric 4x2 rigid and CF Electric 6x2 rigid and 4x2 tractor units. Also on show for the first time in the UK was the New Generation DAF XG+ top of the range Super Space replacement cab over a 13-litre 530hp engine.

Following the launch in June, production of righthand drive New Gen trucks will start in October at the Leyland factory in Lancashire and orders are now being taken.

The New Gen DAF XF and XG are completely new models that replace the existing XF range which has been central to DAF Trucks’ market-leading position in the UK for the past 26-years. A notable feature is the new DAF Digital Camera system that can replace the main and wide-angle mirrors while Corner View improves the view around the nearside A-pillar.

Both the LF Electric rigid and CF Electric 4x2 tractor are also now available in the UK along with PACCAR’s turnkey charging systems for electric vehicles, and the stand included a 40kW mobile PACCAR battery charging station.
