New Generation DAF XD and XF Electric

Driving zero emissions


Ready for the fully electric future 

More and more European municipalities are announcing that, in the future, only zero-emission vehicles will be allowed on inner-city roads. As a result, fully electric trucks will become a must for transport companies operating in urban areas. The New Generation DAF XD and XF can be fitted with a fully electric PACCAR e-powertrain enabling you to meet new regulations and contribute to healthier cities. PACCAR e-powertrains have been fully tested, offering efficient charging systems, robust electric motors and a large geographical range. With this flexible, high-performance solution, you can deploy a battery electric vehicle for distribution and municipal applications in rural areas.


State-of-the-art electric engines

The advanced DAF XD and XF Electric trucks are powered by the efficient and reliable PACCAR EX-D1 and PACCAR EX-D2 permanent magnet e-motors, which offer outputs from 170 kW/230 hp to 350 kW/480 hp. To perfectly tailor these electric vehicles to your needs and application, a full range of battery packs with 2 up to 5 strings is available, resulting in ‘zero emission’ ranges of over 500 kilometers on a single charge. As a result, through optimal vehicle and charging planning, the trucks can even realize an impressive 1,000 fully electric kilometers per day.

Bodybuilder friendliness

Thanks to flexible and modular packaging of the batteries on the chassis, the New Generation DAF XD and XF Electric offer industry leading bodybuilder friendliness. Battery packs can be optimally tuned to the vehicle’s application, leaving ample space for side loader superstructures and crane legs for instance. A 650V e-PTO is available as an option for powering auxiliary equipment such as an electric cooling installation for temperature-controlled transport or an electro-hydraulic crane. This eliminates the need of a separate generator.


Fast DC charging standard, AC charging optional

The New Generation XD Electric and XF Electric can be fast charged with powers up to 325 kW, allowing to boost a 3-string battery pack in just over 45 minutes from 0 to 80% of its capacity. Even the largest battery pack can be fully charged from empty to 100% in less than 2 hours.

Optional is an on-board charger with the capability of AC current charging of up to 22 kW. This provides highest flexibility to operate the vehicle, even in remote areas.

Supporting your transition to electric driving

Our DAF dealers support you with tailor-made sales advice based on advanced route simulation models for a smooth conversion to zero emission e-trucks. Furthermore, they offer operational support through a full array of premium PACCAR Chargers, perfectly tuned to the new XD and XF Electric trucks.

The comprehensive range includes fixed charging solutions with powers up to 50 kW using standard AC current and up to 350 kW for ultra-fast DC charging. In addition, there are also mobile chargers available, providing maximum flexibility.


Charging systems

DAF is on hand to help you select the right charging systems for your batteries. We work in close collaboration with leading suppliers and there's a wide choice of charging stations and capacities. We also develop customised training to help your drivers get the most out of your electric truck. This is just another example of how DAF does more than simply supply the best trucks.
