Waberer’s has received DAF Hungary’s first electric truck, which can cover up to 500km a day.
DAF CF Electric has been developed in response to the rising demand for better air quality and lower CO2 emissions. Its development has been a key step in zero-emission medium-distance distribution in freight transport.
“We have decided to embark on the path of “going green” and our current fleet expansion is the next milestone on this route. This is not the first purely electric vehicle in our fleet and will not be the last, but the largest so far. The fact that we are the first in Hungary to put this truck on the roads is the result of thinking together with our partners (both customers and suppliers) for the long run because an investment of this magnitude cannot be implemented otherwise. This truck is not only the first series-produced pure electric DAF truck in Hungary but also in Central and Eastern Europe. Waberer’s is committed to doing what it does professionally, as that is what leads to lasting, repeatable, and sustainable solutions,” said Barna Erdélyi, Member of the Board at Waberer’s.
Also, numerous European cities are announcing that to drive into cities you would need zero-emission vehicles, which is another important reason the Waberer’s group has decided to buy alternative powertrain trucks.
“DAF is one of the leading manufacturers of electric trucks. We were one of the first European truck manufacturers to successfully launch a fully electric truck. At DAF, however, electric propulsion is much more than just finding the right truck for a particular application. DAF’s electric vehicle program offers a complex solution, including efficient charging systems, robust electric motors, and advanced route simulation programs to show what the use of electric trucks will look like in the company’s day-to-day business,” said DAF Hungary managing director Péter Szentpáli Gavallér.
