Battery Electric Vehicles

Zero-emission transport solutions


Leading the way

Several cities have announced that in the coming years they will only allow zero-emission vehicles into their city centers in order to improve local air quality. This means that fully electric trucks have a bright future. DAF offers a full range of vehicles and dedicated affiliated services to support you to make the transition.


The right zero emission solution for a suite of applications

DAF is leading the way in Battery Electric Vehicles, or BEVs. In 2018, DAF was the first to have introduced a full battery electric CF truck on the market, of which many are in daily operations with customers.

In the meantime, DAF has introduced a full range of Battery Electric trucks, providing the right zero emission solution for a suite of applications. By planning intelligently and by recharging the batteries when the opportunity arises – sometimes as little as half an hour is enough – it is already feasible to cover 1,000 electrical kilometers per day. This illustrates the significant steps that are made regarding battery capacity and ranges.

It’s all in the numbers

It's true that electric trucks are still more expensive than their diesel counterparts, but it's worth investigating what local and national government incentive schemes may be available to you. It's also important to work out how you can benefit from lower energy costs. No matter how you look at it, an electric truck will ultimately give you unlimited access to environmental zones, both now and in the future. Quiet, zero-emission trucks demonstrate your company’s commitment to the environment. What's more, they're good for your business and good for the world in which we live.
