Renault trims fuel consumption on Master LCV by up to 7.4%

The latest Renault Master range, which was launched in 2010, delivers further CO2 emissions cuts this year with a saving of up to 16g/km, equivalent to a fuel consumption reduction of up to 0.6 liters/100km (7.4%).

Renault Master enjoys a 15% share of the European big van segment (26.6% in France as of the end of April 2012) which reinforces the brand’s status as Europe’s number one LCV manufacturer, a position it has held since 1998.

The launch of New Master in 2010 saw the introduction of an engine (M9T) developed especially for Renault’s big van. This 2.3 dCi powerplant, which is made in Cléon, France, comes in a choice of three power outputs (100 hp, 125 hp and 150 hp) and its fuel consumption has been cut this year by up to 0.6 litres/100km. CO2 emissions are down by up to 16g/km (7.5l/100 km and 197 g/km for the L1H1, 125 hp version).

To achieve these savings, the work of Renault’s engineers focused on the following areas:

  • Thermal management: an improved water circuit for even faster starting,
  • New oil and power steering pumps,
  • Low fuel-consumption tires,
  • New gearbox lubricant.
