DAF’s New Generation trucks run on 100% HVO to cut CO2 emissions by 90%

DAF’s New Generation trucks run on 100% HVO to cut CO2 emissions by 90%

DAF is working on a hydrogen-powered Internal Combustion Engine as a different option from fuel cell technology. This option has the advantage of having better transient capabilities, which means it can respond faster to changes in power demand and eliminate the need for a large energy storage system. DAF is also conducting trials with fuel cell technology to explore its potential for the future of hydrogen-powered trucks.


  • HVO is a convenient and eco-friendly fuel that does not require any changes to the DAF trucks, and preserves their high performance and long service intervals of up to 200,000 kilometres for long-haul transport.


    HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is a green fuel that comes from vegetable oils and waste fats. It works in diesel engines as they are and it can cut CO2 emissions by up to 90% versus regular diesel. DAF’s New Generation trucks are ready for 100% HVO and can run on this fuel without any loss of performance or reliability.


    Yes, HVO is compatible with all DAF products, such as the LF, CF, XF, XG and XG+ series. HVO requires no modifications to the DAF trucks, and preserves their great performance and service intervals.

    • HVO is a true ‘drop-in’ fuel that does not require any changes to the fuel infrastructure or supply chain.
    • HVO comes from waste products and fats from the food industry, which saves land and water resources.
    • HVO has a higher cetane number than conventional diesel, which improves the combustion quality and reduces the engine noise.
    • HVO has a lower cloud point than conventional diesel, which means it can operate in colder temperatures without waxing.
