First Fully Electric Trucks for Hungarian Logistics Providers

The DAF CF Electric tractor will clock up to 500 zero emission kilometers a day in and around Budapest. It is the first DAF CF Electric to be delivered in Central Europe. To minimise its emissions, Waberer’s recently ordered 450 New Generation DAF XF tractors. With the new DAF CF ElectricWaberer’s once again underlines the fact that it values the importance of reducing its environmental footprint.

In 2018, DAF was the first European truck manufacturer to introduce a fully electric distribution truck. The CF Electric, available as a 4x2 tractor and a 6x2 rigid  has been developed in response to the rising demand for better air quality and lower CO2 emissions in the transportation sector. With its' smart planning and fast charging, DAF CF Electric trucks are able to cover hundreds of ‘zero emission’ kilometers per day.

Waberer has decided to embark on the path of going green. Waberer's fleet expansion is the next milestone on this route and this fully electric vehicle will not be the last. Waberer is committed to delivering durable and sustainable logistics solutions. Fully electrical trucks offer an opportunity for the transportation sector to play its part in dealing with the challenges of global warming and local air quality. Waberer’s DAF CF Electric will initially be put into operation in and around the Hungarian capital of Budapest for the transportation of all kinds of goods.

DAF has been supplying fully electric trucks for years, resulting in a vast real-life experience. In addition to helping DAF customers to find the right electric truck for their specific application, the company also offers them an integrated solution, including efficient charging systems and advanced route simulation programmes to optimise the company’s day-to-day business.
