Renault has launched an ‘off-the-shelf’ Master Dropside conversion, enabling customers to access vehicles directly through the dealer network.
Developed in response to increasing demands from businesses, the conversion cuts the time and hassle of having to sort a third-party conversion service on the Master Chassis Cab and also brings a full three-year/100,000-mile manufacturer warranty.
Three load lengths are available to customers – Medium, Long and Extra Long – offering up to 4,300mm load length and up to 1,664kg of payload.
All Master Dropside commercials feature rear corner pillars as standard, with a foldaway step on the rear side panel and up to eight anchoring points in the load area. Also standard is a hot-galvanised steel front side panel and platform and an anti-slip wooden floor, while a steel cab protecting grid with an object rack is designed for long items such as ladders.
As with the Master Luton Box Van, an optional tail lift is available.
The Dropside is the latest and last in the range of off-the-shelf conversions available for the Master, all of which can be ordered through the Renault dealer network, including the brand’s network of 44 dedicated PRO+ specialist dealers.
Diesel engines on offer include dCi 130, dCi 135, Energy dCi 145 and Energy dCi 150 powertrains, with a choice of front- or rear-wheel drive. Twin-wheel rear-wheel drive versions are also available.
Prices start from £37,892 OTR for the FWD ML35 dCi 135 Business and range to £50,876 for the RWD Energy dCi 145 Business.
Renault is also offering finance options for its Master conversions. As a guide, the Dropside FWD ML35 dCi 135 Business can be had on a 6+47 contract term and 10k p.a mileage, with a £2,052 deposit and £342 per month.
