DAF and VDL launch fully electric truck for city logistics
DAF Trucks is partnering with Netherlands-based technology company VDL to release a first series of CF Electric trucks that will be brought into operation with leading customers in the course of this year.
In a statement issued yesterday (16 May), DAF Trucks said the CF Electric is a 4×2 tractor unit developed for up to 40 ton distribution applications within urban areas in which single or double axle semi-trailers are the standard. The truck uses VDL’s E-Power Technology for fully electric operation.
The CF Electric has a range of about 100km. “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,” said DAF.
