Series production of XD and XF Electric to start in summer 2023
DAF has reached the impressive production figure of 50,000 New Generation trucks. The milestone vehicle – a white DAF XG with 355 kW/480 hp PACCAR MX-13 engine – was officially delivered to the Dutch customer Kleijn Transport in Alblasserdam.
The New Generation DAF XD, XF, XG and XG+ are the first and only trucks on the market to comply with the new European Masses & Dimensions regulations that allow a more aerodynamic and spacious vehicle design. As a result, the New Generation DAF trucks set new standards in efficiency, safety and driver comfort. Consequently, the DAF XF, XG and XG+ trucks for long and heavy haulage were awarded ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’, while the New DAF XD for distribution and vocational applications received this prestigious award for 2023.
The key to the 50,000th New Generation DAF was handed over to John Dekker, Finance Director of Kleijn Transport by Harald Seidel (right), President of DAF Trucks.
