DAF has invested around one billion euro to develop an entirely new Euro 6 vehicle range and to prepare its production facilities in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and Westerlo in Belgium for the new generation of trucks.

Daf will premiere the new DAF LF and DAF CF model ranges as well as the UK debut of the all new DAF XF flagship model at the CV Show in Birmingham next week (9-11 April) at the NEC.

The new XF was developed to meet the Euro 6 emissions standards that will come into force in the European Union. DAf has invested around a billion euro to develop an entirely new Euro 6 vehicle range and to prepare its production facilities in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and Westerlo in Belgium for the new generation of trucks.

Euro 6 comes into force in the European Union on 1 January 2014. Compared with the current Euro 5 standard, the new legislation requires that nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions be reduced by a further 77%, while soot particle emissions must be cut by 66%.

The new emissions legislation was a main driver for Daf to develop a completely new vehicle series of which the XF, the new flagship model designed for long-distance transport, has now officially entered production.
