As with every DAF vehicle, the XD Electric and XF Electric are tailor-made to perfectly match the wishes of each individual customer. This is why electric PACCAR drivelines are modular. In addition to the availability of two PACCAR EX engines (with six different performance ratings), the battery packs can also be mounted in different positions on the chassis, depending on the customer’s requirements. This guarantees maximum flexibility for bodybuilders.
DAF XD Electric and XF Electric
The DAF XD Electric and XF Electric were launched at the IAA fair in Hanover in September 2022. The fully electric PACCAR drivelines deliver outputs of between 170 and 350 kW (210 to 480 hp). DAF also offers a choice of battery packs using a modular approach. The smallest pack contains two ‘strings’ which together have a capacity of 210 kWh and offers a range of up to 200 kilometres. The largest has 5 ‘strings’ with a capacity of 525 kWh and can achieve a range of over 500 kilometres. The electric trucks are perfectly equipped for rapid charging and even the largest battery pack can be charged from 0% to 80% in just over 45 minutes.
International Truck of the Year
The brand-new DAF XD represents a new benchmark in the distribution segment thanks to its unparalleled safety features and efficiency and its sublime driver comfort. Not surprisingly, the DAF XD series was recently crowned ‘International Truck of the Year 2023’, following in the footsteps of the DAF XF, XG and XG+, which were named ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’. The unique DNA of the XD, XF, XG and XG⁺ is also a standard feature of the XD Electric and XF Electric.
The DAF LF Electric, which is available as 4×2 rigids at 16 tonnes and 19 tonnes GVW, is produced at Leyland Trucks in the UK.
