Another title for new generation DAF XF

DAF Trucks has won the ‘European Transport Award for Sustainability’ (ETPN) for its New Generation DAF XF long-haul series. The recognition adds to the list of titles the XF series has collected, including the ‘International Truck of the Year’, ‘Green Truck’ and ‘European Truck Challenge’ awards. The ETPN, presented by the German newspaper Transport, is another confirmation of the qualities of the XF series.

The purpose of the European Transport Prize for Sustainability is to acknowledge companies in the commercial vehicle sector that display and support commitment to sustainable practices. The newspaper aims to demonstrate that responsible and sustainable initiatives can go very well together with efficiency and the competitiveness of a vehicle.With its elongated, aerodynamic cab, the New Generation DAF trucks have set new industry standards in the areas of efficiency and sustainability, resulting in class-leading low fuel and AdBlue consumption. Adding to the efficiency are long service intervals of up to 200.000 kilometres, the ultra-low oil levels in the axle bodies for minimum internal friction loses, the low vehicle weights and the intelligent Advanced Driver Assistant Systems like Predictive

Christine Harttmann, Editor-in-Chief of Transport and a member of the jury, highlighted the significance of DAF’s efficiency achievements, stating:

Diesel trucks remain at the forefront in purchasing decisions. Therefore, it is important and right that manufacturers continue to enhance the efficiency of internal combustion engines. The numerous strong entries in the ‘Conventional Drive Trucks’ category demonstrated the commitment of all manufacturers in this respect. In the end, however, DAF’s New Generation truck design concept, embodied by the DAF XF 450, was clearly the most convincing candidate for winning the award.

Bart Bosmans, Director Marketing & Sales and member of the DAF Board of Management, added:

We are delighted with this important recognition. DAF’s New Generation truck series is a testament to our commitment to innovation and sustainability. The XF 450 illustrates the great effort we have put in developing the most fuel efficient trucks in the industry.
