Renault to showcase electric truck range at virtual motor show

Renault Trucks will be showcasing both its 100 per cent electric ZE range and the environmentally friendly Range T Fuel Eco at the virtual Commercial Motor Show.

The event takes place from September 29 to October 1 and recreates the excitement of a bustling trade exhibition, from the socially distanced comfort of your keyboard.

Renault Trucks says electromobility is the cornerstone of strategy for sustainable urban transport and visitors to the Commercial Motor Show will be able to view its all-electric ZE line-up from 3.1 to 26 tonnes.

The manufacturer claims its battery performance promise guarantees the power available to operate electric vehicles for up to 10 years.

Natalie Rawlings, dealer and event marketing manager at Renault Trucks says: “Ten years ago, we were pioneers in electromobility; today we are experts.

“As society’s environment consciousness grows and we move towards a net zero carbon economy, Renault Trucks’ electric vehicles are improving air quality, reducing carbon emissions and enabling low-noise out-of-hours deliveries to reduce congestion.

“Working with key bodybuilder and specialist infrastructure partners, our turnkey solutions make the transition to electromobility as easy as possible, tailoring vehicles to customers’ applications, harnessing the developments in automation and connectivity and using vehicle data to improve vehicle operation and customer service.”

Also on the Renault Trucks stand will be the Range T Fuel Eco, featuring the latest fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly DTI 11 and DTI 13 Euro-6 Step D engines, powered by diesel or HVO.

“It’s a first-class option for looking after running costs, drivers and the planet and it’s a genuine alternative fleet partner,” adds Rawlings.

The Renault Trucks Master Red Edition, available in van, minibus and chassis cab and diesel or fully electric ZE, with a choice of wheelbases and roof heights, will make an appearance at the virtual show.

While the truck maker’s pre-bodied ‘Ready for Business Range’, developed in partnership with leading bodybuilders, offers mixers, tippers, hook loaders, sweepers and other models available either from stock or on short lead times.

As well as viewing the latest vehicles, visitors can “chat” online about the manufacturer’s 71-stong dealer network and finance packages.
