FREEBIE: Both packs are free for truck buyers
Renault Trucks UK are launching two exclusive, free-of-charge packages on all 2013 new range orders, aimed at boosting consumption and enhancing productivity.
A UK Fuel Eco pack – helping operators achieve greater fuel efficiency – and a Simplicity pack – comprising a two-year service and inspection or repair and maintenance contract – are up for grabs.
Both packs have been developed to add further value to Renault Trucks’ ‘total cost of ownership’ approach, helping decision-makers to maximise uptime, productivity and profitability.
Nigel Butler, Commercial Director of Renault Trucks UK, said: “We are confident that our new vehicle line up has been engineered to provide maximum efficiency and productivity for our operators.
“The introductions of the Fuel Eco and Renault Trucks Simplicity packages are our way of providing an even better service to our operators, with tools and offers that will help ensure the optimum performance of these fantastic new trucks.”
The UK Fuel Eco pack comprises three key elements: a five-month trial of Optifleet telematics; a one-day Optifuel driver training course; and a fuel-saving features bundle.
Features within the bundle include Renault Trucks’ Softcruise and Ecoroll systems, optimised gear shift pattern, engine idle shutdown, a clutchable compressor and a variable flow power steering pump.
“With the new range, fuel savings of up to 5% are possible depending on application and driving style, due to the innovative, aerodynamic design and engineering of the new product,” added Mr Butler.
“With the Fuel Eco pack we are giving operators all the tools at our disposal to improve this still further and boost their bottom line, as well as improving driver comfort and safety, though better, more anticipative driving styles.”
Simplicity sees Renault building on their total cost of ownership approach by offering operators two free deals.
Customers can choose either a free two year service and inspection deal on all new heavy rigids or a free two year repair and maintenance contract on all new tractors.
“Reliability and efficiency are crucial to any transport operation,” said Mr Butler.
“The 10million kilometres of real life testing on our new product range in real customer situations have proved their reliability over the last couple of years.
“The Renault Trucks Simplicity package backs our faith in the quality and reliability of the new ranges.
“It provides our operators with the route to have their new vehicles professionally maintained within our approved Renault Trucks UK network, using genuine parts and technicians fully trained in the new technology.
“Without doubt, this will help to maintain the productivity and value of these working tools.”
The two new packages will be available on all new heavy D range distribution, T range long haul and C and K range construction trucks.
