DAF TRUCKS is partnering with VDL Groep to release a first series of CF Electric trucks into operation with customers in the course of this year.

The vehicles will feature VDL E-Power technology for zero emissions and ultra-low noise.

These field test trucks will be manufactured by DAF and the full electric installation will be completed by VDL Groep.

Preston Feight, DAF Trucks president said, ‘DAF was among the first manufacturers to introduce a hybrid electric distribution truck in Europe and has continued to develop hybrid and electric powertrains. As cities announce their intention to require zero emissions and ultra-low noise we will make sure our customers have the optimal solutions for their success.’
