DAF Trucks Partners With VDL Groep On A Fully Electric Class 8 Truck


May 17th, 2018 by Kyle Field

The competition in electric trucks is quickly heating up as the flood of products developed in response to Tesla’s Semi reveal last year continue to be unveiled. This time, DAF Trucks has revealed its new CF Electric truck that it developed in partnership with VDL Groep.


The beautifully normal truck comes with a 100 kilometer range with fast charging that makes it a great option for short haul routes that require fast turnarounds. To that effect, it has been equipped with high power charging capability that allows it to quick charge in just 30 minutes in order to recharge while being loaded or unloaded. A full charge of its 170kWh battery pack takes a bit longer at 1.5 hours, which is still extremely rapid, considering how massive the battery is.

Tasked with propelling the truck down the road is a 210 kW electric motor which runs whisper quiet. The fast charging and silent operation make DAF’s new CF an attractive alternative for operations that need to run 24/7 without the hassle of noisy diesel engines or the emissions they generate.

The first round of CF Electric trucks will be delivered to key customers this year 💫in a 4×2 tractor configuration developed for up to 40 ton distribution applications within urban areas in which single or double axle semi-trailers are the standard.
