Renault Trucks has announced its second generation range of fully electric trucks.
The new line-up includes models at weights from 3.1 to 26 tonnes.
The Master ZE will be available in September, followed by electric versions of the Range D and D Wide in 2019.
Renault Trucks says the latest technological advances have made electric trucks an economically viable alternative for hauliers.
The Renault Master ZE should suit last-mile deliveries and provide access to inner-city areas with strict traffic restrictions. It has a 75 mile range and a maximum speed of 60mph.
The specially designed 16-tonne version of the Renault Trucks D ZE is built for urban and temperature-controlled deliveries and the Renault Trucks D Wide ZE will come in a 26-tonne version for refuse collection.
A medium-duty Renault Trucks ZE vehicle has an operating range of up to 190 miles depending on usage and battery configuration.
Thanks to rapid DC charging, the Renault Trucks D ZE and Renault Trucks D Wide ZE lithium-ion batteries can be fully charged in as little as one to two hours via the 150 kW Combo CCS connector. For overnight AC charging, the time to fully charge a 300-kWh battery is 12 hours. In this case, a three-phase 380V 32A industrial power socket is perfectly sufficient.
