Renault Trucks will unveil a “host of progressive new vehicles” at Freight in the City Expo 2017.
Held at Alexandra Palace, London on November 7 Renault has claimed that the new vehicles will meet the challenges of safer, more efficient and more productive operations in urban environments.
Visitors to the stand V01 will see a concept vehicle with a new C320 8x4 Tridem in 2.3m cab variant, and be able to take a look at a Range D18 Wide 4x2 R Low 250 E6 with Boughton’s skiploader body.
The Range C320 Tridem comes with factory-fitted extra axle adaption.
Its smaller, lower cab features a factory-fitted vision window and shorter front overhang than competitor vehicles, while the rear-lifting axle delivers a narrower turning circle that also keeps the truck closer to the kerb when turning left compared to traditional 8x4s.
The the lowest entry Range D skiploader includes two-step access with a step height of just 375mm.
Equipped with factory-fitted vision window in the nearside door, the vehicle is specified with full CLOCS safety system including cycle sensors and the Roadcrew 4 camera system with recorder for safer urban operation.
Renault Trucks’ commercial director Nigel Butler said: “Acknowledging the role that direct vision can play in improving safety for vulnerable road users, we are working closely with our customers to develop vehicles that lead the way in reducing operational road risk and increasing productivity.”
In addition, on stand V35, Renault Trucks is showcasing two exciting new additions to its pre-bodied LCV ‘Ready for Business’ Range, together with its approved third party convertor, Bri-Stor Systems.
The Renault Trucks Master 3T5 Welfare Van L3H2, Available in FWD, RWD and a new 4x4 driveline, the Master Welfare Van is fitted with Renault Trucks’ efficient 145ps Euro-6 engine and 6-speed gearbox.
Also featuring on this stand will be the new Renault Trucks Master Optilogistics offering.
“Renault Trucks is fully committed to enhancing the safety and efficiency of urban transport and logistics; we acknowledge the role that direct vision can play in improving the safety of vulnerable road users and are delighted to introduce some of our progressive new vehicles at Freight in the City Expo,” said Butler.
