Daf LF Hybrid in production

Published to the CV Show website on
23/12/2010

Daf started production of its LF based hybrid distribution truck on Thursday 9 December at its Leyland Trucks plant.  The vehicle uses a parallel diesel electric hybrid system; a diesel engine drives the truck directly or via an electric motor or a combination of both.  The system delivers fuel and emission savings of between 10 and 20%, depending on use.  The 12 tonne truck has a 4.5 litre Paccar 160 hp diesel that meets EEV emission standards.  This drives through an automatic Eaton six-speed gearbox with an electric motor between the clutch and gearbox; the unit can provide power or work as a generator, storing energy in lithium-ion batteries for use when accelerating.  The truck is only 300kg heavier than a standard model and offers a 7.5 tonne payload capacity.
