With easy cab access, unparalleled manoeuvrability and a low kerb weight for a high payload, a DAF LF is ideal for distribution or vocational applications. The LF Electric offers all these qualities as well as zero emissions and almost silent driving. It’s easy to see why the DAF LF is so successful. It ensures optimum comfort and practicality for drivers who need to get in and out of the truck frequently or be able to deal with freight documents easily. Designed specifically for urban applications, it has a spacious yet compact cab and offers superb driveability along with a good driving position.
The LF Electric has a combined charging system. It features onboard charging, which means it can be connected to a 400v AC 3 phase electrical supply for overnight charging — ideal for when the vehicle returns to its home base at the end of the day. The batteries can be charged from 20% to 80% in 6.5 hours and from 0% to 100% in 12 hours.
The 19-tonne LF Electric has a 260 kW (370 kW peak power) electric motor that’s powered by a 282 kWh (252 kWh effective) battery pack. The result is outstanding performance, and even more importantly: a range of up to 280 kilometres. That’s unique in this class!
Quick charging is also available. This functionality requires the installation of a DC charger (650 V DC, 150 kW) at your premises, making it possible to charge the batteries from 20% to 80% in just one hour and from 0% to 80% in only two hours. This will maximise the operating time of your LF Electric.
DAF can supply the LF Electric with an e-PTO to power auxiliary equipment and bodywork as required. This eliminates the need for a separate power source and allows you to use electrically powered refrigeration and waste collection equipment – making your truck completely CO2 emission-free from front to back.
The LF Electric is available as a rigid truck with a 5.30 m or 5.85 m wheelbase; it has a GVW of 19 tonnes and a body and payload allowance of 11.7 tonnes, which is sufficient for most distribution applications.
