Renault Trucks is rolling out its latest electric Z.E. van and truck range, including 3.1- to 26-tonne versions and the new Master Z.E., at Freight in the City at Alexandra Palace, London on 6 November.

One of the Master Z.E.s will feature Renault’s new OptiTipper body, shown here in its diesel-powered RED Edition form, as well as a revamped interior including a dashboard and steering wheel redesign. Other variants of the electric Master include panel van, chassis cab and platform cab.

The powertrain consists of a 76hp battery which produces 225Nm of torque giving the Master Z.E. a top speed of 60mph. One full charge, Renault claims, gives the Master Z.E. a 124 mile range. Charging the van will take five hours when it’s plugged into a 43kW quick charger.

The new Master is also available with a range of driver aids like active braking, side wind assist, permanent rear view, blind spot warning, and front and rear parking assistance.

James Charnock, commercial trucks and services director said: “Renault Trucks has a strong track record in the municipal sector and we are ideally placed to grow our position. We understand the operational complexities and work closely with specialist body manufacturers to deliver efficient, sustainable tailored solutions for municipal services.”

Freight in the City takes place on 6 November at Alexandra Palace, London. It's a free, one-day event combing a seminar programme focused on urban logistics with an exciting exhibition of latest vehicles and technology for city operations. Register today for a free pass to attend!
