Updates to heavy-duty Renault Trucks

Setanta Vehicle Sales has confirmed that Renault Trucks has introduced a package of updates for its heavy-duty truck ranges.

With a commitment to the ongoing improvement of its vehicles, Renault Trucks offers drivers a safer, more functional and comfortable working environment.

The changes, which are available on T, T High, C and K models, including the E-Tech electric derivatives of the T and C, bring improvements in two main areas, the driver interface and safety systems.

Starting with safety aids, a new camera system gives all-round visibility, and has the option of a fifth camera which can be set up to provide functions such as monitoring the load space or the fifth-wheel during coupling.

A new speed warning system, Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA), uses a camera to detect the prevailing speed limit, and issues a warning when it’s exceeded, and a tyre pressure monitoring and warning system is fitted.

Other advanced driver assistance technology in the 2024 heavy-duty range Renault Trucks models includes the most effective emergency braking systems to ensure the safety of drivers, their loads and other road users.

Finally, for reducing fuel consumption and therefore CO2 emissions, the vehicles can be equipped with the Optivision Map Based system, which transmits topographical data to the on-board computer as the journey progresses in order to optimise gearshift strategies.
