DAF introduces new range of EV chargers

DAF Trucks has introduced a full range of electric charging stations for its LF Electric and CF Electric trucks.

The new fixed charging stations offer power levels from 20 kW up to 360 kW and are supported by mobile chargers with power levels from 24 kW up to 40 kW.

The 20 kW to 50 kW PACCAR chargers support the daily operations of an individual truck that can be charged overnight.

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

It says the most powerful version in the range is the 350 kW 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.

The truck maker adds that mobile chargers are ideal for road side assistance or in workshops, where maximum flexibility is needed in the charging infrastructure.

Richard Zink, director marketing & sales of DAF Trucks says: “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. And as from today we also offer our customers premium quality charging equipment so that they are assured of the most optimal integration between the truck and charging station.”

The new range of PACCAR chargers are available from DAF dealers and TRP stores and are backed by a two-year warranty.
