DAF introduces charging stations for electric trucks


DAF Trucks is offering customers charging stations for its LF Electric and CF Electric trucks, as well as other electric commercial vehicles, including vans.

The manufacturer is introducing a full range of fixed charging stations with power levels from 20kW up to 360kW. In addition, mobile chargers with power levels from 24 kW up to 40kW are available.

Charging hardware and the network software is being taken care of by DAF and its partners, who have up to ten years of experience in the advanced charging industry.

Where needed, the partners will conduct site assessments, energy modeling and engineering at the customers premises. They will also maintain the charging equipment.

Customers can purchase the Paccar chargers from DAF dealers and TRP (parts) store locations. The complete range of electric vehicle charging stations is backed by a two-year warranty.

The 20kW to 50kW Paccar chargers support the daily operations of an individual truck that can be charged during the evening or at night.

Designed for convenient fast charging, the 120kW and 180kW Paccar chargers are suited for fleets operating electric vehicles on multiple routes or in multiple shifts. The 180kW unit provides the power to charge most truck types in less than three hours.

The most powerful version is the 350kW Paccar charger, an ultra-fast solution that can charge vehicles at full rated power in less than two hours or fast charge two vehicles simultaneously.

Richard Zink, director marketing & sales of DAF Trucks said, “The application of fully electric trucks requires a specific way of planning and operations.

“DAF makes this conversion as easy as possible for its customers. We always advise about how an electric truck delivers the highest return on investment in the daily operation.”
