The LF45 and LF55 are powered by Cummins B4.5 and B6.7 engines respectively, and the LF shares its cab with the Renault Midlum and the Volvo FL. It is also the base for medium duty trucks by sister brands Kenworth and Peterbilt, also owned by parent company PACCAR.

The LF won the International Truck of the Year 2002 award.[1]

LF HybridEdit

September 2010, DAF introduced a hybrid version of the LF45 at the IAA 2010 in Hannover[2][3]. The LF Hybrid combines a 118 kilowatt diesel engine with a 44 kW brushless electromotor. The electromotor has a permanent magnet and is placed in line between the clutch and the automatic transmission. The electromotor is powered by 96 lithium-ion batteries of 3.4 volt each, weighing a total of 100 kilos. The battery pack allows the truck to drive about two kilometers without the diesel motor and to store energy from braking for future use[3][4].
