Dutch truck maker DAF unveils its new all-electric truck
Dutch truck manufacturer DAF has recently marked its apparent foray into the electric-truck arena by unveiling a new all-electric truck. The electric powertrain of the truck has been built by DAF in partnership with VDL Groep.
The all-electric truck unveiled by DAF is equipped with a 170 kWh battery pack and a 210 kW electric motor. Despite the fact that the 170 kWh battery pack capacity would evidently appear to be fairly small for the truck unveiled by DAF, the company has asserted that battery pack will enable a truck with 40-ton capacity to achieve a range of up to 100 km.
According to DAF, the mentioned range of the truck will apparently give it the ability to effectively carry out distribution tasks in urban areas.
On the occasion of the unveiling of the all-electric truck, DAF Trucks president Preston Feight drew attention to the fact that the company has “a strong history of developing innovative solutions” in accordance with the evolving needs of its customers.
DAF Trucks president Feight also said that DAF was one of the first truck manufacturing companies “to introduce a hybrid electric distribution truck in Europe,” and added that the company “has continued to develop hybrid and electric powertrains.”
