Turning heads on Renault Trucks’ stand is a heavily customised Range T High 480 Turbo Compound 6x2 tractor.

Product engineer Mike Stringer explained that all the work, including the eye-catching Red Bright Orange paint work, was carried out in the factory under the manufacturer’s new 01 Customized initiative. This includes the colour-coded windscreen pillars and mirror covers.

Renault has also worked its magic on the interior, which features a custom dashboard, door trims and a red-stitched steering wheel. “Some of the customers love to customise their trucks, and now we can carry out this work at the factory,” says Stringer.

This is also the first truck to feature Renault’s new side skirts. Sourced from a UK supplier, they are available for 3.9m and 4.1m pusher-axle configuration 6x2 tractors.

RTX is also the first showing of a right-hand-drive E-Tech RangeT. The addition of this tractor unit means Renault now has the largest range of zero-tailpipe-emission trucks in the UK, from the e-cargo bike to the 44 tonne E-Tech RangeT.
