Tinie Manders Transport, based in the Netherlands, recently added a new DAF CF Electric truck to its fleet of 50 tractor units. This is the second CF Electric model DAF has delivered, with the first going to Jumbo, a supermarket chain also based in the Netherlands. The 9,700-kilogram 4x2 truck has a hauling capacity of 37 tonnes and is designed for use in urban environments. It features VDL E-Power Technology and uses a 210-kilowatt electric motor to produce 2,000 newton-metres of torque. With its 170-kilowatt-hour battery, which has a quick charge time of 30 minutes and full charge time of 1.5 hours, the truck has an operating range of 100 kilometres.

Foundation For The Future

“We are very proud to be one of the first to drive this pioneering DAF,” says Eveline Manders, director and owner of Tinie Manders Transport. “We have been involved in its development from the outset and we are, of course, curious to see the results in practice. Our decision as to whether to expand the range of electric vehicles within our company will be based not only on the zero emissions factor, but also on the ease of use and the additional possibilities that this truck offers us. Zero emissions combined with the minimal noise levels of the truck mean that we can also meet the increasingly stringent legal requirements for inner city transport, thereby enabling us to set ourselves apart from the competition.”

Working Together

Tinie Manders Transport will use the all-electric CF model to pull a refrigerated trailer, which is also fully electric. With this move, the transporter is now part of the Dutch DKTI subsidy program, which also includes DAF, VDL Groep, DHL, TNO, Allego, THT New Cool, and the Geldrop-Mierlo municipality. The aim of the project is to determine “whether more regional transport could be carried out using fully electric vehicles,” according to DAF.

You’ll find hundreds of used DAF trucks for sale every day on TruckLocator, including several DAF CF models.
