1949 – Truck Chassis

In 1949, DAF manufactured their first truck, which was one of three prototypes.
The production of commercial vehicles followed with the introduction of three
models; the 3 tonne (A-30), 5 tonne (A-50) and 6 tonne (A-60). With the
evolution of production from trailers to commercial vehicles, DAF was renamed
DAF Automobielfabriek N.V. (DAF Automobile Factory), employing 184 staff
and producing two vehicles a day.
