20 DAF trucks to support UK e-truck trial
Daf truck manufacturer Leyland is to participate in a project designed to help UK operators make the transition to battery electric trucks.
Twenty Daf LF Electric 19 t rigids, together with the required charging infrastructure, will be fitted with data logging equipment and used to support the UK’s department for transport's efforts to encourage the use of battery electric vehicles in commercial transport.
Leyland Trucks will be partnering with several end-users in the public sector during the trial, including various NHS (National Health Service) operations to trial eleven Daf LF Electric rigids. Nine vehicles will go to a number of local authorities to support recycling and deliveries to schools. (ben)
