daf delivers first lf electric truck to dutch nabuurs

DAF Trucks has commenced delivery of its zero-emission distribution trucks for use in urban areas. The first DAF LF Electric will be acquired by the Dutch logistics service provider Nabuurs, which will use the truck to supply the AB InBev brewing company in Groningen.

DAF Truckspresented the LF Electric truck in early 2021 and developed the new, smaller model in close collaboration with Dana. The 19-ton distribution truck LF Electric comes with two wheelbases (5.3 or 5.85 meters) and offers a body & payload allowance of 11,700 kilograms. DAF deems this sufficient for most city operations.

Accordingly, their new truck claims a range of up to 280 kilometres thanks to a battery pack with a capacity of 282 kWh (254 kWh net). The cells have LFP chemistry. The e-motor provides 250 kW of nominal power (370 kW peak) and a nominal torque of 1.200 Nm (3.700 Nm peak).

One notable feature of the DAF LF Electric is its Combined Charging System. Using slow charging (400V AC, 22 kW, 3 phases), the battery can be charged from 20% to 80% in 6.5 hours. A full recharge takes 12 hours. Fast charging (650V DC, 150 kW) is also possible.

This was also a significant plus for Nabuurs, writes DAF. “It means we don’t have to invest immediately in expensive DC charging facilities,” added Dolf Hubertus, fleet manager at the logistics services provider. “The vehicle can be hooked up to a normal 22 kWh charger at the end of the day and be ready for use the next morning.”

The manager added that the new electric trucks served two purposes – to gather experience and follow the Groningen City Council in its climate targets.

Naarbus will deliver supplies from the AB InBev brewing company that also sells Bud beer to bars in Groningen. The company wishes to reduce the COemissions of its supply chain using the LF Electric. Ralf Kox, Logistics Manager at AB InBev: “Our ambition is to achieve Net Zero globally by 2040. Bud is now being brewed using 100 per cent renewable electricity and is being supplied on a fully electric basis to hospitality establishments in the city of Groningen.”
