Renault Trucks in Chile: how the e-trucks will be used

The vehicles cover around a hundred kilometres a day, serving a number of delivery points in and around Santiago. Their bodywork includes an innovative swap body system designed to optimise logistical operations. These electric trucks are recharged overnight using dedicated charging points at CCU’s NPR distribution centre in Renca.

“This first delivery of electric trucks to Chile illustrates Renault Trucks‘ commitment to promoting innovative and sustainable transport solutions on a global scale”, explained Cyril Barillé, Vice President Africa, Latin America and Asia at Renault Trucks. “The successful completion of this project is the result of close collaboration between Trailer Logistics, CCU, the Chilean electricity company ENELX, Salfa and the teams at Renault Trucks. I would like to thank them sincerely for their trust and commitment.”
