Renault Trucks is broadening its all-electric Z.E. range with the release of a 3.5-tonne Master Z.E. There will also be a wider choice of batteries for medium duty electric vehicles – the Renault Trucks D and D Wide Z.E can now be specified with 66 kWh battery packs giving an operating range of up to 400km.
The Master Z.E. can now be ordered with a 3.5-tonne GVW in addition to the 3.1-tonne GVW previously available. Adding a further 400kg to the 3.1-tonne model’s payload of up to 1 tonne, Renault Trucks says the Master Z.E. still offers a real-world operating range of 120km and can be fully charged in just six hours.
The 3.1-tonne range consists of two models (van and platform cab) available in three different lengths (L1, L2, L3) and two heights (H1, H2). The 3.5-tonne van version is already on the market in the same six combinations and will shortly be available as a platform cab and chassis cab.
