DAF has reached the milestone of selling 50,000 of its New Generation trucks in the fastest time in its history.
The milestone vehicle, a white DAF XG, was officially delivered to Dutch customer Kleijn Transport.
The New Generation DAF XD, XF, XG and XG+ are the only trucks on the market so far to comply with the new European Masses & Dimensions regulations, which allow a more aerodynamic and spacious vehicle design.
“Never before in our 95-year history has the impressive milestone of 50,000 trucks been reached so quickly after market launch,” said Harald Seidel, president of DAF Trucks.

“This illustrates the success of our New Generation DAF trucks. The milestone acknowledges the excellent characteristics of the vehicles and is also a reflection of the industry-leading quality our dedicated employees deliver to our customers every day.”
Kleijn Transport finance director John Dekker said: “Based on our excellent experience with the New Generation DAF vehicles, we are increasing their number to 50 now.
“We have deliberately selected the spacious XG model to perfectly combine the highest fuel efficiency and best-in-class comfort, with the latter being hugely important given the current driver shortages.”
