The Delanchy Group has been a Renault customer for more than 50 years, and since 2017, the company has made refrigerated deliveries to the Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse food market with the help of an all-electric Renault Trucks D prototype vehicle. However, the Delanchy Group recently acquired the first D Z.E. production model to exit Renault’s manufacturing facility in Blainville-sur-Orne, France.


The 16-tonne truck will operate in either Lyon or Paris as part of the Delanchy Group’s thousand-vehicle fleet, of which 340 trucks are dedicated to distribution. The Renault D Z.E. is expected to take many 110-kilometre trips, offering quiet operation and producing zero emissions. The addition of the D Z.E. is another important step toward the company’s goal of embracing electric mobility and becoming increasingly environmentally friendly.


Satisfied Customers

“A committed haulage contractor in terms of electric mobility, we were keen to be involved in developing a zero-emissions refrigerated delivery solution for city centres,” says Yannig Renault, technical director for the Delanchy Group. “We were able to test and validate this technology thanks to the 100% electric Renault Trucks D prototype, which we were pleased with both in terms of its use and maintenance.”


Yannig continues, “Our staff and customers are equally satisfied, which is why the Delanchy Group has confirmed its commitment to electric mobility by ordering the very first Renault Trucks D Z.E. series. This second electric carrier will join our fleet and thereby help give our transport solutions a real ‘energy mix.’”
