Renault Trucks will bring its fully electric 3.1- to 26-tonne (3.4- to 28.6-U.S.-ton) Z.E. range to ITT Hub 2021 for the Ride & Drive circuit. The manufacturer will also showcase its long-distance, construction, distribution, and LCV ranges and will mark the UK debut of the Optifuel Lab 3 concept vehicle. The Innovation & Technology in Transport Hub, in association with Logistics UK, is an event for fleet operators and policy makers with exhibitions, demonstrations, and a conference on transport innovation and technology for trucks, vans, and commercial passenger vehicles. The event will be held 30 June to 1 July at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, will include more than 150 exhibitors, and will be free to attend.
Ride & Drive Circuit
Renault’s fully electric 16-t (17.6-U.S.-t) D Z.E. will be part of the Ride & Drive event, where (as the name implies) visitors will be encouraged to take a test drive. The D Z.E. is equipped with a Bevans box body, powered by four 66- kilowatt-hour lithium-ion batteries. Its Alternating Current synchronous motor with permanent-magnet technology delivers maximum power of 185 kW. The truck can cover up to 200 kilometres (124 miles) on a single charge.
Also slated for the Ride & Drive circuit will be the 3.1-t Master Red EDITION panel van and the T480 6x2 TML. The panel van is powered by a 57-kW Z.E. electric motor with a range of up to 120 km (75 mi). The T480 has a DTi 13 Euro VI Step D engine and is powered by Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) renewable diesel.
Renault Trucks’ stand in the outdoor exhibition area (stand No. 8) will feature the Optifuel Lab 3, an energy-efficient concept vehicle that has recorded a 12.5% reduction in fuel consumption by optimising the aerodynamics of the full convoy, powertrain, and tyres and integrating predictive driving support and energy management functions. Visitors can also see the 26-t Renault D Wide Z.E. Low Entry Cab. Designed for urban applications, the 260-kW fully electric truck has a range up to 200 km. The D19 Wide 4x2 Urban Artic with DTI11 430 Euro 6 Step D engine will be on display as well. The compact tractor unit has low fuel consumption and easy manoeuvrability that makes it ideal for urban operations.
“ITT Hub is the perfect showcase for Renault Trucks: We share its commitment to Innovation & Technology in Transport, which supports the government’s decarbonisation of transport plan,” says Renault Trucks UK & Ireland Managing Director Carlos Rodrigues. “As a manufacturer, our fully electric Z.E. range already provides zero tail-pipe emission solutions to customers now, but we also recognise our own responsibilities to act.”
