Renault’s electric van goes on sale

Renault’s Master ZE electric utility vehicle is now available for sale in Renault Trucks dealerships.

The van is targeted at the urban delivery market. It has a real-world operating range of 120 km and can be fully charged in only six hours. Its loading volume is the same as a conventional diesel Renault Master as the batteries are mounted under the front seats.

The Master ZE is the first vehicle in a new all-electric line-up from Renault which will include a 16 tonne delivery vehicle, and a 26 tonne refuse vehicle.

The Master ZE comes in six variants – four panel vans and two platform cabs – to meet the varied requirements of professionals working in urban environments.

To protect both the driver and the load and guarantee the safety of city-dwellers, the Master ZE is fitted as standard with a reversing camera, a reversing radar and a wide-view mirror. The truck also features the ZE voice alert system designed to warn pedestrians that the vehicle is approaching when it is travelling at speeds of between 1 and 30 km/h.
