Renault Trucks has announced that, from 2023, it will offer an all-electric model in each of the segments it serves: distribution, construction and long distance.
Renault Trucks now offers all-electric trucks from 3.1 to 26 tons. Its electric lineup consists of the D Z.E., D Wide Z.E. and Master Z.E., which serve the urban transport, delivery, distribution and waste collection markets. The company seeks to extend electrification to all vehicle segments, and is preparing to market a new Z.E. tractor to meet the needs of regional and inter-regional transport, as well as an EV designed for urban construction, by 2023.
To market its Z.E. range and support its EV customers, Renault Trucks has set up a new entity responsible for electric mobility projects. This team is working to develop partnerships involving stakeholders such as haulers, distributors, public authorities and energy suppliers.
In addition to vehicles, the Renault Trucks brand offers a comprehensive transport solution, including batteries, charging station installation, energy optimization, repair and maintenance, financing and insurance.
Renault Trucks has set the modest goal of making its lineup carbon-neutral within 30 years, and currently believes that both battery-electric and fuel cell vehicles will be needed to achieve this gradual transformation.
“Electric mobility is the pillar of our strategy and we aim to lead the field,” announced Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks. “We’re aiming for 35% of our sales to be electric in 2030. By 2040, all our vehicle ranges will be 100% fossil-free.”
