Renault Trucks has added a new model to its growing portfolio of electric vehicles. The new Renault Trucks E-Tech Trafic is a mid-sized van that shares its workings with the Renault Trafic E-Tech, and adds a second conventional van option to the Renault Trucks range.
The E-Tech Trafic will be available in a range of configurations including three panel van versions with two lengths and two heights giving customers access to L1H1, L2H1 and L2H2 sizes. There are also two crew van versions (L1H1 and L2H1) and a platform cab model to allow operators to fit a range of bespoke bodies. As a panel van, it has a load volume of 5.8m3 to 8.9m3 with a load length of up to 4.15m.
Power comes from a new 90kW (120hp) electric motor powered by a 52kWh battery with a claimed range of up to 297km (185 miles) according to the WLTP combined cycle. It also claimed to have one of the best electric energy consumption figures on the market at 18.7kWh
The E-Tech Trafic also comes with an eight-year battery warranty and two years warranty for the rest of the van. Renault Trucks customers also get the benefit of the HGV network which includes a growing number of dedicated LCV centres with quick appointments and extended opening hours – including Saturdays.
The Renault Trucks E-Tech Trafic will be available in France, the UK, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy and Germany with order books opening in October.
It joins the Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C at up to 44 tonnes, Renault Trucks E-Tech D, D Wide and D Wide LEC (16-, 18- and 26-tonnes), Renault Trucks E-Tech Master (3.1- and 3.5-tonnes) and a range of cargo bikes at 650kg.
