Renault Trucks has released a 3.5-tonne version of its all-electric Master ZE model, which will join the existing 3.1-tonne model already on the market.

Fully chargeable in six hours, it will add a further 400kg to the 3.1-tonne variant’s 1-tonne payload and provide a real-word operating range of 120km.

Both ZE models are available in three different lengths and two heights, while the 3.5-tonner will shortly be available with a platform cab and chassis cab.

The manufacturer said this will open up a wider range of utility applications by enabling the fitting of equipment such as a tipping trailer or a high-volume body with lifting tailgate.

Renault Trucks has also announced a wider choice of battery packs for its medium-duty electric models, the Renault Trucks D and D Wide ZE.

Based on a new 66 kWh battery pack, the vehicles can now be specified in one of five configurations, from 200 kWh to 400 kWh, offering operators the opportunity to transport more goods further than before.

A Range D ZE with six 66 kWh batteries – 400 kWh total – will provide a range of up to 400 km on a single charge, according to the manufacturer.

Renault Truck's full electric line-up now ranges from 3.1 tonnes to 26 tonnes GVW, with zero tailpipe emissions and quiet electric engines aimed at inner city areas with strict traffic restrictions.
