PostNL is the first fleet in Europe to start using the new Renault Master ZE.
The mail, parcel and e-commerce business, based in the Netherlands, will operate 17 Masters for inner-city deliveries as part of its target to realise zero-emission deliveries in 25 locations by 2025.
With a 33kWh battery, the Master ZE has a range of 75 miles. It offers a load space of between eight and 13 cubic metres.
Liesbeth Kaashoek, packages and logistics director at PostNL, said: “PostNL likes to invest in sustainability. For instance, our package distribution centres are constructed using the most sustainable materials and also feature solar panels on the roof. We are also updating our vehicle fleet thanks to various models of electrical bikes, scooters and cars. We are thus proud to be the first company to drive with the Renault Master ZE in Europe. This means our packages will be delivered emission-free in the inner cities of Utrecht and Leeuwarden, and other cities will follow soon.”
First UK deliveries of the Renault Master ZE panel van will start in winter 2018.
