Renault Trucks has signed a contract with the Carlsberg Group to deliver 20 D Wide Z.E. The 100% electric 26-tonne trucks will be operated by the Feldschlösschen brewery, the group‘s Swiss subsidiary.

Renault Trucks believes that urban transport needs to move towards electric mobility quickly to improve quality of life in city centres and to tackle global CO2 emissions.

“It is the first order of this scale in Europe,” says Renault Trucks president Bruno Blin. “It proves to our customers that the transport sector is undergoing a major transformation and reflects an industrial and commercial reality: our Renault Trucks electric trucks are rolling off the assembly line and will be on the roads of Europe in a few weeks‘ time.”

The 20 trucks will make daily delivery rounds of between 100 and 200km to supply Feldschlösschen Swiss clients from the brewer‘s 15 logistics sites in Switzerland.

Feldschlösschen is committed to zero-emission logistics, partly through production sites being served by railway lines.
