Renault Trucks launches Renault Master Z.E. electric utility vehicle

The Renault Master Z.E. (earlier post) is now available for sale in Renault Trucks’ dealerships. The Renault Master Z.E. is suited to last-mile deliveries.


This all-electric utility vehicle comes in six variants—four panel vans and two platform cabs—to meet the varied requirements of professionals working in urban environments. It provides access to inner-city areas, even those with strict traffic restrictions.

The Renault Master Z.E. offers a real-world operating range of 120 km (75 miles) and its 33 kWh pack can be fully charged in six hours. Its loading volume is the same as a conventional diesel Renault Master as the batteries are mounted under the front seats.

To protect both the driver and the load and guarantee the safety of city-dwellers, the Master Z.E. is fitted as standard with a reversing camera, a reversing radar and a wide-view mirror. The truck also features the Z.E. voice alert system designed to warn pedestrians that the vehicle is approaching when it is travelling at speeds of between 1 and 30 km/h.

The Renault Master Z.E. belongs to Renault Trucks’ all-electric range. This new line-up features the Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E., the Renault Trucks D Z.E. and the Renault Master Z.E. It offers capacities between 3.1 to 26 tonnes to cover the full gamut of urban uses.

The Renault Master Z.E. features a 57 kW electric motor that delivers maximum torque of 225 N·m; maximum speed is 100 km/h.

In the U.S. those are big fuel consuming trucks with hundreds of packages.

The X-ray drawing of the van wonderfully illustrates how the battery could easily be 10 times larger...

This proves what I have often said: nearly all other vehicles, except long-haul ships and planes, are easier to electrify, because they either run predictable trips, or have a much, much better payload-to-weight ratio. And to top that, most other vehicles than cars have more spare volume (relatively). Even long-haul trucks.

57 kW electric motor... Why?!?!?
