Renault Trucks has introduced an 18-tonne D Wide ZE model to its electric truck range, alongside a wider range of wheelbases and special connectivity for refrigerated bodies.
The newcomer joins the 16- and 26-tonne Renault Trucks D ZE and D Wide ZE models.
Equipped with a two-axle chassis for improved manoeuvrability, Renault Trucks says the 18-tonne D Wide ZE is well suited for temperature-controlled distribution, with an optimised payload.
In addition, the manufacturer has designed a new system to increase the energy efficiency of all-electric trucks equipped with a refrigerated body.
All Renault Trucks ZE models are now available with a fridge-connection option, which supplies the energy required for the refrigeration system directly from the vehicle's battery.
For improved manoeuvrability, Renault Trucks has also extended the range of wheelbases available for its D and D Wide ZE from 3900mm to 6800mm, to cover more applications.
As well as distribution, Renault Trucks expects strong interest from light construction, building supplies and skip operators keen to offer the best possible service to their urban customers.
The 18 tonne D Wide ZE has an operating range of up to 112 miles and is available to order now.
