“Einride is committed to selecting leading truck manufacturers with the best technical performance in the industry. In DAF, we have found an excellent partner as we continue to expand our global fleet of electric vehicles.” 

Robert Ziegler, General Manager Europe at Einride. 

The New Generation DAF XD and XF electric trucks are equipped with two to five battery packs, providing a powerful output of up to 525 kWh. With this setup, they can achieve an impressive ‘zero-emission range’ of up to 500 kilometres on a full charge.

That means the trucks can cover up to 1,000 kilometres a day with a smart charging strategy, so nothing is out of driving range. DAF will also provide repair and maintenance packages, carried out through their dealer network of over 1,100 locations across Europe.

“We are proud to deliver our New Generation Battery Electric vehicles to Einride, which is a leader in the supply of innovative mobility packages, purely based on fully electric vehicles”

Richard Zink, Director Marketing and Sales and member of the DAF Board of Management.

This order is a sign of things to come in the trucking and haulage industry, as these EVs are undeniably able to perform the jobs previously reserved for diesel trucks. As these state-of-the-art electric trucks find their success around the world, the trajectory of the haulage sector is sure to align.
