Electromobility is the cornerstone of Renault Trucks‘ strategy for sustainable urban transport. In line with this strategy, the French manufacturer is now launching the first vehicle in a new all-electric line-up: the Renault Master Z.E.

The Renault Master Z.E. is ideally suited to last-mile deliveries. This all-electric utility vehicle comes in six variants – four panel vans and two platform cabs – to meet the varied requirements of those working in urban environments. It provides access to inner-city areas, even those with strict traffic restrictions.

The Renault Master Z.E. boasts a real-world operating range of 120km and can be fully charged in only six hours. Its loading volume is the same as a conventional diesel Renault Master as the batteries are mounted under the front seats.

To protect both the driver and the load and guarantee the safety of city-dwellers, the Master Z.E. is fitted as standard with a reversing camera, a reversing radar and a wide-view mirror. The truck also features the Z.E. voice alert system designed to warn pedestrians that the vehicle is approaching when it is travelling at speeds of between 1 and 30 km/h.

Renault Trucks‘ all-electric range includes the Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E., the Renault Trucks D Z.E. and the Renault Master Z.E. The range offers capacities between 3.1 and 26 tonnes to cover the full gamut of urban uses.
