New batteries for a greater range and faster charging times. Renault Trucks Master Z.E. has been enhanced with higher range up to effective 190 km and equipped with new 52 kWh batteries. This improved version of the all-electric van will ben available starting from spring 2022. Moreover, the battery storage capacity of the Renault Trucks electric Master has been increased from 33 to 52 kWh.

Renault Trucks Master Z.E. available in multiple versions

The full-electric van was on display last week at Solutrans at the (quite crowded) Renault Trucks. The e-Master is available in 3 models (van, chassis cab and floor cab) and 8 versions (3 lengths and 2 heights), with a chassis guaranteed for two years or 100,000 km and a battery guaranteed for 8 years or 160,000 km. The Renault Trucks Master Z.E. completes the manufacturer’s range of all-electric trucks, which includes the 16-tonne D Z.E., the 19-tonne D Wide Z.E. and the 26-tonne D Wide Z.E. Talking about hydrogen development, the Master has been used as the first prototype created by HYVIA, the 50-50 joint venture between Renault and US company Plug Power.

Like its diesel counterpart, the electric Master is marketed under the Red Edition name, an exclusive trademark for Renault Trucks commercial vehicles, and is therefore fitted with special equipment. Through Red Edition, Renault Trucks places its HGV expertise and the density of its distribution and repair network at the service of its commercial vehicle customers. The manufacturer offers its customers the guarantee of a service tailored to the needs of transport professionals, including expert technicians in the maintenance and repair of all types of truck, rapid vehicle pick-up at extended times to suit drivers’ schedules, a 24/7 assistance service, and the provision of a relay vehicle if the customer’s van is out of service.
