Renault Trucks is enhancing its own range of electric trucks for urban distribution tasks. A 19-ton D Wide Z.E. has been added to the 16- and 26-ton Renault Trucks D Z.E. and D Wide Z.E. models, which have been in production since 2020. The existing electric models have been already delivered and are currently working, for instance, for a major brewery in Switzerland, as well as in Florence, Italy, and France.
Renault Trucks 19-ton D Wide Z.E., deal for temperature-controlled distribution
The 19-ton truck will be manufactured at Blainville-sur-Orne plant, the same site where the other models are produced. Equipped with a two-axle chassis for improved manoeuvrability, according to the manufacturer, the 19-ton Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. is the ideal vehicle for temperature-controlled distribution, with an optimised payload.
Renault Trucks D and D Wide Z.E. 16, 19 and 26 ton trucks are now available with a fridge-connection option, which supplies the energy required for the refrigeration system directly from the vehicle’s 600 V traction batteries. Finally, for improved manoeuvrability, Renault Trucks has also extended the range of wheelbases available for its D and D Wide Z.E. from 3900 mm to 6800 mm, enabling it to cover more applications and related needs, notably by optimising load distribution.
Subsidies by the CORAM
Since Renault Trucks’ electric trucks meet the transformation needs of the automotive industry, particularly with regard to the energy and ecological transition, the CORAM (French Steering Committee for Automobile and Mobility Research) has awarded Renault Trucks a subsidy for the development of the brand-new model and additional wheelbases. Renault Trucks was recently awarded for its technical excellence in the UK.
