LF Hybrid leads for Daf

On its stand at the IAA show in Hanover, Daf Trucks will show its 12-tonne LF45 hybrid truck, due in production at the end of this year.  The firm has tested its LF Hybrid for two years in the UK and on the mainland and says the parallel hybrid power system can cut fuel use by between 10 and 20%.  The firm says it is the EU’s leading tractor unit maker, but still places a “major focus” on its rigid range, with a “tailor-made vehicle for every application”.  Also on show is special edition of the XF105 Super Space Cab, the Blue Edition.  Daf also claims a truck industry first by supplying all engine ratings in ultra-clean EEV versions.
