DAF starts field test of new generation distribution trucks

New generation DAF Trucks

DAF Trucks has started field tests as the final phase in the development of a new generation of distribution trucks.

The field-tested new generation DAF distribution trucks make use of the same platform as the new generation XF, XG and XG+ heavy duty trucks, developed with the new European masses and dimensions regulations in mind.

The field tests follow the successful launch of the new generation XF, XG and XG⁺ in Europe, it said. 

Ron Borsboom, executive director product development at DAF Trucks, said: “With the game-changing XF, XG and XG+, DAF started the future of long and heavy haulage.

“Now, we are on our way to start the future of regional and national distribution as well. Direct vision, seating position, ergonomics, fit and finish, it will all be of a new league, next to superior vehicle efficiency plus ride and handling.”

DAF will unveil its new generation of distribution trucks in the second half of the year. The new series will become available in addition to the wide range of DAF CF trucks.

DAF Trucks recently launched a dedicated electric vehicle (EV) product training scheme for its network-based technicians, as deliveries of its LF Electric and CF Electric vehicles commence.
