See the DAF LF City at Freight in the City Expo

Freight in the City Expo at Alexandra Palace, London, next week will showcase DAF Trucks’ new LF City.

The City variant is part of a wider LF range of lightweights (from 7.5- to 18-tonne rigids).

The 7.5-tonner that will be at the expo is powered by an SCR-only 3.8-litre 170hp engine, developing 600Nm of torque. DAF said the Paccar PX-4 – now the smallest engine in the DAF range – has been optimised for urban operation

A 5-speed manual gearbox and super-tight turning circle combine with the PX-4 to provide nimble driving characteristics, and an overall distribution package ideally suited to start-stop vocational applications.

Another vehicle highlight at the expo will be Terberg’s Urban Safety Logistics Vehicle. The 18-tonne refrigerated truck was designed in conjunction with Terberg’s sister company Dennis Eagle and bodybuilder Gray & Adams.

The free to attend Freight in the City Expo takes place on 7 November and as well as an exhibition of the latest urban delivery vehicles and technology, it features a full seminar programme where expert speakers will address some of the major challenges of the day facing urban operators.
