Renault Trucks will present its entire range of vehicles at the biennial IAA trade fair in Hannover from 22nd to 29th September 2016. From the Renault Trucks T Maxispace High Edition through to the already iconic K range, this year it is the brand’s robustness that is being showcased. Visitors will also find the MKR truck just back from the Dakar Rally and the Silk Road Race on the Renault Trucks stand, together with a number of simulations.
Renault Trucks will exhibit nine vehicles at the 66th IAA 2016 Show (Hall 17, stand A21). Long distance, construction, distribution, rally truck and simulations will all attest to the historical robustness of the diamond brand.
Where long distance trucks are concerned, visitors will exclusively be able to see for themselves a special edition of the T520 – the Renault Trucks Range T Maxispace High Edition. In addition, visitors will be able to climb aboard a cut-open cab of the Range T High so that they can appreciate the ergonomics, the visibility and in particular test the comfort of this vehicle, voted ‘International Truck of the Year 2015’ at the last Show.
As regards the construction sector, a highlight will be a very special version of the Range K, specific to the German market – the Renault Trucks K480 Skorpion,
Another highpoint should prove to be the MKR Adventure Range K truck just back from its recent performances at the Dakar Rally and the Silk Road Race, being presented to the public for the first time. This truck will be the subject of particular attention because it will be possible to experience the sensation of driving on board it in rally raid, thanks to two driving simulators.
Visitors at the Renault Trucks stand will also be able to view a special truck customisation workshop, ‘Pimp my truck !’. Sven Punke, Marcel Barth and their team from the Truck Tuning Centre, who were amongst the winners with their truck ‘Avatar’ at the last Truck-Grand-Prix at the Nürburgring, working hard in the 300m2 space that Renault Trucks has reserved for them. Airbrushing, removal and fitting of parts, or even the original upholstery of the cab interior, a Renault Trucks Range T High will be undergoing customisation throughout the Show. Spectators will appreciate not only the tuning activity and accessories used, but also the ruggedness of the vehicle.
To allow visitors to follow current events on the stand and in particular the customisation progress, Renault Trucks will be offering regular news updates and will also retransmit the show ‘Pimp my truck!’ on social networks..
