Einride and DAF have agreed an order for the supply of 50 fully electric New Generation DAF trucks.
The vehicles will be added to Swedish freight mobility firm Einride’s fleet of electric heavy-duty vehicles – one of the largest in Europe – and consists of a wide range of DAF XD trucks in various specifications with three to five battery packs. The trucks will be put to use with a variety of customers hoping to make use of the zero-emission range of up to 500km.
“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,” said Robert Ziegler, general manager Europe at Einride.
“By leveraging DAF's technological edge, combined with our own freight mobility solutions, we look forward to setting a new benchmark in efficient and sustainable transportation while meeting the evolving needs of our clients,” he added.
All vehicles will be delivered with DAF repair and maintenance packages and the first batch of vehicles are scheduled to be delivered throughout the course of this year.
