Renault Trucks Extends Its Electric Range


To help clients speed up on the transition to clean energy, Renault Trucks is extending their battery portfolio for medium duty electric vehicles. To help haulage companies make the move to electric, Renault Trucks all-electric vehicles can be customized from 3.1 to 26 tonnes GVW with an operating range of up to 400 km. 

Now Equipped with 66 kWh batteries

The Renault Trucks D and D Wide Z.E can now accommodate 66 kWh lithium-ion battery packs, whereas before the trucks were capped at 50 kWh. The batteries are one of the most expensive items on an electric truck. So, rather than systematically including the maximum operating range, Renault Trucks instead prefer to offer its customers a more beneficial range. This solution is tailored to customers’ real-life requirements, maintaining the payload and ensuring their business remains competitive.

Customers can choose from five different configurations up to a maximum of six 66 kWh battery packs for the Renault Trucks D Z.E., which translates into an operating range of up to 400 km.

The Renault Trucks Master Z.E. has just been released in a 3.5 tonne model

Renault Trucks is also expanding its Master Z.E. offering, with the truck can available to order with a 3.5-tonne GTW compared to 3.1 tonnes previously. Despite carrying an additional payload of 400 kg, the Renault Trucks Master Z.E. still offers a real-world operating range of 120 km and can be fully charged in just six hours. An additional benefit is that the model is which is also noise-free and helps preserve and maintain the urban air quality. They allow access to inner-city areas, especially green-cities with strict traffic restrictions

The 3.1-tonne range consists of two models (van and platform cab) available in three different lengths (L1, L2, L3) and two heights (H1, H2). The 3.5-tonne van version is already on the market.

The 3.5-tonne Renault Trucks Master Z.E. all-electric utility truck will shortly be available with a platform cab and chassis cab accommodating a wide range of equipment such as a tipping trailer or a high-volume container with lifting tailgate.
