Renault Trucks launches zero emission vehicle for UK market

Renault Trucks has launched an ell-electric 26 tonne tractor unit for the UK market. Available to order now, the 6×2 Range D Wide ZE zero emission truck is the first for the UK market.

The vehicle is driven by two electric motors that deliver a maximum power of 370kW and a maximum torque of 850Nm. Depending on its application and body specification it has a range of up to 93 miles.

The Renault D Wide ZE truck has a 22kW AC charger and can take up to 150kW of DC fast charging. The 220kW battery is guaranteed for 10 years.

“Today marks a significant milestone in our transformation of urban mobility, with the arrival in the UK of the first fully electric MHD launched earlier this year,” said Carlos Rodrigues, managing director, Renault Trucks UK & Ireland. 

“Major cities, starting with London are leading the way regarding air quality improvement. Clean Air Zones and Low Emissions Zones will gradually improve the air quality, but electromobility is the only viable option to achieve climate change and CO2 reduction in the urban environment.  We are delighted to introduce our ZE range fitting most urban and last mile delivery applications from 3.1 tonnes up to 26 tonnes. They are available for delivery here and now in the UK and Ireland.”
