The path of Renault Trucks towards electromobility continues at quite high speed, with the target of selling only zero emission vehicles by 2050. In 2022, Renault Trucks managed to reach 24.2% of registrations in the medium and heavy duty vehicle (MHDV) segment in Europe, with 379 Renault Trucks E-Tech D and D Wide vehicles invoiced. In France, Renault Trucks leads the electric mobility in freight transportation with a 75% market share in the electric MHDV market. Renault Trucks also invoiced 268 Renault Trucks E-Tech Master electric light commercial vehicles in 2022.
Renault Trucks: electromobility in several European cities
In 2022, many transport companies and local authorities chose Renault Trucks to help them switch to electric vehicles, including XPO in France, which announced an order for 100 electric trucks, the City of Barcelona, which purchased 73 Renault Trucks electric trucks for waste collection and street cleaning, Coca-Cola, which operates 30 Renault Trucks electric trucks for last-mile deliveries to its customers in Belgium, and Sepur, which has just put 18 Renault Trucks E-Tech D Wide into service to collect household waste from the entire 13th arrondissement of Paris.
According to Renault Trucks, this trend is set to continue in 2023, as the French manufacturer registered over 1,700 orders for electric vehicles in 2022. At the end of 2023, Renault Trucks will also begin production of electric heavy duty trucks, Renault Trucks E-Tech T for regional distribution and Renault Trucks E-Tech C for urban construction, at its Bourg-en-Bresse plant in France.
These electric vehicles are part of the full ecosystem for decarbonising transport proposed by Renault Trucks, which takes the form of tailor-made support for hauliers in their energy transition from the very first decision to decarbonise their fleet: from assessing and analysing needs to monitoring implementation and operation.
