Renault Trucks returns to Freight in the City Expo at Alexandra Palace, London on 6th November 2019 with a line-up that debuts the new Master Red EDITION, showcases its 100% electric Z.E. range from 3.1 to 26 tonnes, and reinvigorates its focus on innovative, energy-efficient commercial vehicles for the municipal sector.
With a model range that covers diverse municipal applications, from 3.1 to 50 tonnes GVW, and a proven reputation for productivity and performance, Renault Trucks is ideally placed to strengthen its presence in this sector.
James Charnock, Commercial Trucks and Services Director says: “Renault Trucks has a strong track record in the municipal sector and we are ideally placed to grow our position. We understand the operational complexities and work closely with specialist body manufacturers to deliver efficient, sustainable tailored solutions for municipal services.”
Making its UK debut on stand V01 is the new Renault Trucks Red EDITION Master shown in the new “OptiTipper” version, available as part of the Renault Trucks’ Ready for Business range. The “OptiTipper” model is available in both Euro 6 Diesel and 100% Electric Z.E. variants and is ideal for various municipal applications including parks maintenance.
A bold new frontage and completely revamped interior, redesigned dashboard and steering wheel, together with functional, ergonomic storage spaces will appeal to both drivers and operators alike. The new Renault Trucks Master also offers new driver-assistance systems, including active braking, side wind assist, permanent rear view, blind spot warning and front and rear parking assistance.
Available in all models – panel van, chassis cab and platform cab – the Renault Trucks Master Red EDITION is fitted as standard with a 150 hp/385 Nm Euro 6d-temp engine (light duty), a 145hp/360 Nm Euro 6d engine (heavy duty) or electric 57kW engine.
