JCDecaux augments fleet with latest Renaults

The new vehicles replace existing Renaults as well as models from other manufacturers, increasing Renault’s share of JCDecaux’s LCV fleet.

The order follows JCDecaux taking delivery of a batch of Renault Trafics earlier this year.

The new vehicles were chosen based on their environmental compatibility, high levels of equipment, payload and comfort and are all specified in Business trim level and with Twin Turbo Energy turbodiesel engines with Stop&Start engine management and the new regenerative braking system. 

The Trafics have the 1.6-litre ENERGY dCi 125 engine, while all the Masters feature the 2.3-litre ENERGY dCi 145 engine. Both come in six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive format.

All vehicles were supplied by Renault Croydon. Conversions completed by TEVO and, depending on the vans’ designated usage, include the installation of water tanks, onboard power, internal glass racks and roof racks.

Gerald Hares, fleet manager, JCDecaux UK, said: “The Master and Trafic fit very well with our requirements, providing good whole-life costs and payload for the size of the vehicle, as well as features that are useful to our operatives when they are out on the road.

“Driver feedback has also been positive, our technicians particularly like the comfortable seating and driving experience of our latest Renault vehicles.”
