New Generation DAF reaches 10,000 production milestone

Most successful introduction ever in DAF’s over 90 year history

DAF has built its 10,000th New Generation DAF truck. As the official production of the New Generation DAF XF, XG and XG⁺ series was only started last winter, today’s landmark proves the eminent success of DAF’s game-changing trucks.

The completely newly developed New Generation XF, XG and XG⁺ were awarded ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’ and crowned ‘Truck of the Year’ in several countries throughout Europe. 

Up to 10% more fuel efficient

DAF is the first, – and so far only – truck manufacturer, that has made optimal use of the new European Masses & Dimensions regulations, creating a new industry benchmark in efficiency, safety and driver comfort. Outstanding aerodynamics, new drive lines and advanced driver assistance systems all result in customers reporting fuel consumption savings of more than 10%, leading to comparable reductions in CO2 emissions. 

Winning combination

Richard Zink, Director Marketing & Sales and Member of the Board of Management at DAF Trucks: “The New Generation DAF XF, XG and XG⁺ are the favorites of both drivers and fleets. Our flagship trucks are packed with innovation, beautifully designed, a dream to drive and offer the largest and most comfortable cabs in the industry. Owners benefit from the lowest operating costs and the highest uptime. The perfect win-win combination.”

Highly skilled employees

Harry Wolters, DAF Trucks President: “The milestone of 10,000 trucks produced not only represents the excellent qualities of the New Generation DAF trucks, but is also a testament to the over 10,000 dedicated employees at DAF, who are responsible for the design, the development, the production and the marketing and after sales of our award-winning trucks.”
