New Generation DAF XB Electric

The ideal zero-emission city distribution truck
Perfectly suited for sustainable inner-city and regional distribution

DAF expands its ‘zero emission’ product offering with the new DAF XB Electric. Turning to XB electric is the right choice to further limit carbon emissions. The DAF XB Electric encompasses the best in class driver comfort, drivability, efficiency and safety features as the XB diesel version.  The new DAF XB Electric is perfectly suited for sustainable inner-city and regional distribution. Next to 16 and 19 tonnes versions, a 12 tonnes version with 17.5” wheels and only one entry step is available. Wheelbases start from 4.2 meters.

Ranges up to 350 kilometres
The e-motor of the XB Electric provides 120 or 190 kW of nominal power depending of the specification and a nominal torque of 950 and 1.850 Nm respectively (2.600 and 3.500 Nm peak). For the lowest possible environmental impact and highest durability, DAF applies a cobalt and magnesium-free, lithium iron phosphate (LFP – Lithium Ferro Phosphate) high energy battery packs with a gross energy content of 141 up to 282 kWh. These allow XB Electric ranges of up to 350 ultra-quiet and ‘zero emission’ kilometres; more than enough for the needs of urban distribution transport operators.

Fast and slow charging
A special feature of the new DAF XB Electric is the ‘Combined Charging System’. This allows the truck to be charged through the regular electricity network and is ideal when the truck returns to the home base at the end of the day. Rapid charging the batteries (650V DC, 150 kW) from 20% to 80% will only take 40 to 70 minutes, depending on the specification.
