Asset Alliance Group orders 75 electric trucks from DAF

DAF Trucks has been contracted to deliver at least 75 electric trucks in the UK. The British truck rental company Asset Alliance ordered a total of 1,500 new trucks from the Dutch manufacturer, and while the majority diesel trucks, at least 75 are to be electric. Deliveries are due to start this year.

The electric trucks themselves are from the newest generation DAF XF, XG and XG+ vehicles, and feature ranges of up to 500 km. The trucks are also not actually out yet, and production will commence in the spring of 2023. DAF Trucks also cites the DAF LF series, which features a 270 kilometre range, “which make them the perfect vehicles for inner-city and regional distribution”.

The XD Electric is designed for heavy distribution transport and, depending on customer requirements, has e-drives that produce between 170 and 350 kW and a range of battery packs for ranges of 200 to over 500 kilometres that can be charged with up to 325 kW.

The LF Electric is also intended for distribution transport, but is a good deal below the heavy XD Electric. This is a 19-tonne truck with two axles and a payload of 11,700 kilograms, which has already been on offer since September 2021.

“The size of the deal and DAF’s commitment to zero emission electric vehicles speaks volumes for our trusted partnership with Asset Alliance Group and builds on years of doing business together,” said Russell Patmore, Truck Sales Director at DAF UK. “As the market-leading commercial vehicle manufacturer in the UK, we are delighted to supply a range of electric and diesel models over three years to meet long haul and distribution applications. These trucks uniquely take advantage of the new weights and dimension legislation to secure class leading performance in both electric and diesel version.”

“The order represents an enormous commitment for Asset Alliance Group and DAF, underlining the strong relationship we have enjoyed for many years and commitment to the environment and zero emissions”, said Asset Alliance Group CEO Willie Paterson.
