Renault Trucks said it had a lot of conversations at the show with operators who were interested in decarbonising their fleets, whether this be by switching from diesel to HVO or investing in zero-tailpipe-emissions vehicles.

“They are talking to us about their fleets of the future, and what needs to change,” said a spokesman. “And it doesn’t matter if it’s a 44-tonner or a 3.5-tonne LCV, we will work with them to take carbon off the road.”

The truck maker had three D-Tech battery-powered trucks on its stand, including an 18-tonne curtainsider that’s about to go into operation with Carlsberg.

The Bevans Group-bodied dray is one of two battery-electric (BEV) Renaults ordered by the brewer, the other being a 26-tonner.

Renault Trucks also showed an 18-tonne Hyva skiploader BEV, which is one of two trucks ordered by Recycling Lives last autumn.
