Renault Trucks has unveiled the models of its heavy-duty all-electric range. The Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C, which are the first to bear the manufacturer’s updated logo, will be produced in series from 2023 and are available for pre-order.
The arrival of Renault Trucks’ all-electric heavy-duty range marks a major step forward in the manufacturer’s commitment to decarbonising road freight transport. Renault Trucks is now the only company to provide an electric mobility offer for all uses: from a 650kg cargo bike to a 44t electric tractor and construction truck.
These new models, which are for regional distribution and construction, have a design that is specific to their electric motorisation, including changes to the front end.
The E-Tech T and C have the trademark graphic signature of the brand’s electric trucks: blue hubcaps and vertical stripe on the sides of the vehicle and the Renault Trucks E-Tech badge at the front. They are also fitted with a new Emblem plate in blue plexiglass.
To increase safety, the front of the vehicles has been brought forward by 115mm and radars have been placed on the sides. The chassis is also equipped with a retractable step, which maximises the space dedicated to the batteries.
As for the completely revised front panel, Renault Trucks’ designers have drawn their inspiration from the world of electronic music, with a pattern reminiscent of an equaliser. To reinforce this electromechanical effect, the front of the vehicles is fully painted.
The E-Tech T and C are already available for pre-order from Renault Trucks subsidiaries in Europe. Operators wishing to purchase an electric vehicle from the heavy-duty range can already reserve the first manufacturing slots. Production is due to start at the end of 2023 in Bourg-en-Bresse, France.
