Renault PRO+ has announced the introduction of fully converted Dropside, Luton Box Van and Tipper options to the Master E-Tech Chassis Cab range.

The expanded line-up complements the established Luton Low Loader conversion and means Renault offers a diverse range of fully converted electric vans.

The newly introduced 3.5-tonne Master Chassis Cab E-Tech now offers an increased 1,620kg payload from the 3.5-tonne derivative, enabling the latest suite of conversions.

The Master E-Tech 3.5T Dropside is designed for those needing to load large and bulky items to and from their vehicle, due to its open load area and 400mm high aluminium side panels.

The Luton Box Van, with its large, enclosed load area boasts 20m3 load space and is well-suited for transporting furniture and bulky supplies, says Renault. Alternatively, the Tipper offers users the practicality of a Tipper body, which is ideal for carrying and distributing materials to and from construction sites.

Renault says the Master E-Tech 3.5-tonne offers a real driving range of up to 75 miles, thanks to its lithium-ion 33kWh battery. The 57kW power unit delivers torque of 225Nm, with a range of onboard technologies, including regenerative braking and an Eco mode, which help to optimise the range for the most efficient driving experience.

The Master E-Tech has the ability to charge from 0-100 per cent in just six hours with a 7kW wall box – which can be fitted as a home charger – or through one of more than 35,000 public charging points in the UK.

The Business trim level includes automatic headlights and wipers, Hill Start Assist, DAB with Bluetooth and USB, and electric front windows for added comfort.

The Master E-Tech 3.5T comes with a 3-year, 100,000-mile warranty as standard. Renault’s confidence in its battery technology is highlighted by the standard 5-year, 62,000-mile battery warranty.
