Renault Trucks launches electric LCV

Renault Trucks has launched the first vehicle in its new all-electric line-up in the form of the Master Z.E.

Renault Trucks Master Z.E.

The Renault Trucks Master Z.E. will be offered in four panel van variants and two platform cabs. Payloads of up to 1,128kg can be achieved and the company is claiming a real-world operating range of up to 75 miles.

With a gross weight of 3.1- tonnes, the Master Z.E. is powered by a 57kW motor, providing 225Nm of torque. There are 33kWh lithium-ion batteries mounted below the load floor, leaving the largest panel van model with a competitive 13m3 load volume.

To make its role as a last-mile delivery van easier, the Master Z.E is equipped with a reversing camera, a reversing radar and a wide-view mirror as standard.

The vans will also feature a Z.E. voice alert system, designed to warn pedestrians that the vehicle is approaching. This function is active at speeds of 1-19mph.

The vans will be offered at all Renault Trucks dealers across the UK. Renault Trucks’ all-electric line-up also includes the D Z.E. and D Wide Z.E. 26-tonne trucks, which were unveiled at the recent IAA commercial vehicle show in Hanover.
