Renault Trucks Unveils Its New Urban Truck


Renault Trucks' fleet of electric trucks is being further expanded with the European launch of the D Wide Z.E. Low Entry Cab.

Low Entry Cab D Wide Z.E. LEC

This all-electric vehicle is equipped with a new low cab specially designed to facilitate waste collection operations and protect the safety of operators and vulnerable road users.

With vehicles ranging from 3.5 to 26 tonnes, Renault Trucks offers a comprehensive range of electric trucks in the market. The manufacturer is further expanding its range with the launch of a D Wide Z.E. LEC (Low Entry Cab). This low cab has been specially designed to meet the requirements of the household waste collection sector, facilitating the work of the operators and by optimising their safety, comfort and, ultimately, efficiency.

The Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. LEC is equipped to allow operators to access the vehicle effortlessly and safely. The cab entry is 200mm lower than in a standard distribution truck and features a single non-slip step and doors that open at 90°. This significantly reduces crew fatigue from getting in and out of the cab more than 100 times per round.

The low position of the cab provides excellent direct vision for drivers, leading to optimum protection for vulnerable road users. For increased visibility, Renault Trucks recommends additional side windows positioned at the rear of the cab, which are available as an option.

The spacious cab of this all-electric truck can accommodate the driver and up to three additional crew members. Its optional flat floor allows for freedom of movement inside the vehicle and allows for boarding and alighting on both the left and right sides.

Developed in close collaboration with the bodybuilder Estepe, the Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. LEC is delivered in a 6x2 version with a steered rear axle and is available to order throughout Europe. As it is all-electric, the vehicle emits no exhaust fumes and is approved for use in urban areas with traffic restrictions.
