The haulier, which runs 680 heavy goods vehicles, began using two of the trucks last month for trips to supermarkets in urban areas in the Netherlands. They will operate at up to 37 tonnes GVW.

The CF Hybrid features Paccar’s 10.8-litre, 450hp MX-11 diesel engine and a ZF electric motor producing a peak of 175hp, along with a ZF TraXon transmission for hybrid powertrains.
