Leyland Trucks is to participate in a project designed to help UK operators make the transition to battery electric trucks. A total of 20 DAF LF Electric 19-tonne rigids, together with the required charging infrastructure, will be fitted with data logging equipment and used to support the UK Government’s Department for Transport (DfT) efforts to encourage the use of battery electric vehicles in commercial transport. An interactive website will inform future fleet operator buying decisions and help stimulate the sale of battery electric trucks. The project is scheduled to commence this summer.
To support operators in understanding the costs and considerations around the deployment of zero emission trucks, the DfT is adopting a proactive campaign to assist the road transport sector in its transition. The project is part of the Government’s £20 million zero emission road freight trials.
The project is delivered using the SBRI (Small Business Research Initiative), which is a process that brings together government challenges and ideas from business to create innovative solutions. Leyland Trucks will work with CENEX, the low carbon research consultancy, to create an interactive report and website using real-world data to assist public and private fleet operators to better understand the strengths, challenges and deployment options around zero emissions trucks.
Leyland Trucks manufactures the successful DAF LF series of distribution vehicles, including the LF Electric which recently entered production at its state-of-the-art plant in Lancashire.
Leyland Trucks will be partnering several end-users in the public sector during the trial, including various NHS (National Health Service) operations around the country earmarked to trial eleven DAF LF Electric rigids. The remaining nine vehicles will go to a number of Local Authorities to support recycling and deliveries to schools.
Best solutions for zero-emissions operation
“We’re delighted to have been selected to play such a key role in the initiative,” said Rob Lawton, Project Manager at Leyland Trucks, “We’re proud to be leading the drive towards a cleaner, more sustainable future for the road transport industry. Our LF Electric and CF Electric vehicles offer the best solution for zero-emissions operation. The results from our NHS and Local Authority partners will support Leyland Truck’s extensive and long-term testing programs to further strengthen our leading position in providing Battery Electric Vehicles.”
DAF Trucks supports its new electric truck range with a choice of fixed and mobile PACCAR Chargers.
