Renault unveils Trafic Van E-Tech Electric

Renault has today unveiled the first electric version of its best-selling Trafic Van.

The French brand said the new Trafic Van E-Tech Electric has all the same qualities that are behind the success of its predecessor, with more than 2.2 million units sold in more than 50 countries worldwide since 1980.

It now comes with new safety features, a modern multimedia system, and a bigger and better range of engines.

Renault said the Trafic Van E-Tech Electric still boasts storage options with best-in-class length, modularity, and customisation for a van.

The new model has a 52kWh battery with a range of 240km on the WLTP cycle, according to Renault. It also comes with a 90kW motor with 750kg in towing capacity and can carry up to 1.1 tonnes.

Available as a cab-floor model, configurations will include 5.08m or 5.48m in length and 1.967m or 2.498m in height. Its storage volume (in van mode) ranges from 5.8m3 to 8.9m3.

The load length meanwhile can extend up to 4.15m on the extended L2 version featuring the ‘long-load’ trapdoor located in the bulkhead.

The vehicle supports single-phase 7.0-kW AC charging, 22-kW AC charging at public stations, and an optional 50-kW DC fast charger.

No Irish launch dates or pricing have been announced just yet.
