Renault Trucks has introduced a larger battery for its Master ZE electric van that boosts its range to 118 miles.
The new 52kWh battery pack replaces a 33kWh unit, which provided a range of 75 miles.
Renault Trucks says the new battery makes the Master ZE the “ideal work tool for professionals operating in urban environments” and claims the vehicle can cover more than 150 miles per charge in city driving. It can also be charged more quickly, reaching 80% in two hours.
The electric vehicle is equipped with reversing cameras and a blind spot mirror. There is also a voice alert system, which warns pedestrians of the vehicle's approach when it is travelling at less than 18mph.
The Renault Trucks Master ZE is available in three models (van, chassis cab and platform cab), in addition to a wide range of approved conversions including minibus, MEWP and OptiTipper.
It’s powered by a 77PS motor, giving a top speed of 62mph and 225Nm of torque.
The Master ZE completes Renault Trucks’ range of all-electric vehicles, which includes the 16-tonne D ZE, the 18-tonne D Wide ZE and the 26-tonne D Wide ZE.
