Renault Trucks recently announced several new options coming to its medium- and light-duty, all-electric truck and van ranges, including the D Z.E., D Wide Z.E., and Master Z.E. The D and D Wide Z.E., for instance, are now available with 66-kilowatt-hour battery packs. These trucks were originally available with a total of 200 or 300 kWh, but now customers can up that to 400 kWh with six of the new batteries. Renault says a D Z.E. in that configuration has a maximum operating range of 400 kilometres.

The D Z.E. is a 16-tonner with the option for a 4,300- or 5,300-millimetre wheelbase, although Renault does offer “others by request.” It’s powered by a 185-kilowatt (248-horsepower) electric motor that produces up to 425 newton-metres of torque and features a two-speed transmission. The D Wide Z.E. is a 26-tonner and comes standard with a 3,900-mm wheelbase, but Renault offers other options as well. It has two electric motors that produce up to 370 kW (496 hp) and 850 N-m of torque and a two-speed gearbox. With lithium-ion battery packs ranging from 200 to 265 kWh, it has a maximum operating range of 180 km. Both vehicles support 22-kW AC and 150-kW DC charging.

Renault Master Z.E. Details

The launch version of the Renault Master Z.E. light commercial vehicle had a gross vehicle weight of 3.1 t, but now there is a 3.5-t version available as well. Even with that increased payload, it can cover up to 120 km on a single charge. The batteries can be fully charged in as little as six hours.

The 3.1-tonner has three length and two height options in either a van or platform cab configuration, as is the new 3.5-t version. Renault says it will also release platform and chassis cab versions of the Master Z.E. “shortly” that can support tipper trailers, high-volume bodies, and other bodies and equipment.

The Renault Trucks Master Z.E. is powered by a 57-kW (76-hp) electric motor that can produce up to 225 N-m of torque. With 33 kWh lithium-ion batteries chargeable via 7-kW AC charging, the Master Z.E. has a top speed of 100 km/h and a maximum operating range of 200 km on the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle).
