Electric / Hybrid – Renault Trucks expands its range of electric trucks


Serial production of the 18-ton D Wide ZE starts at the Renault Trucks plant in Blainville-sur-Orne (Calvados), where the D ZE and D Wide ZE have been manufactured since 2020. The 18-ton D Wide ZE is equipped with two-axle chassis for better maneuverability and ideal for temperature-controlled distribution, with optimized payload.

Renault Trucks has also designed a new system to increase the energy efficiency of all-electric trucks fitted with a refrigerated body.

All Renault Trucks D ZE and D Wide ZE trucks are now available with a refrigerator connection option, which supplies the energy required for the refrigeration system directly from the vehicle’s 600 V traction batteries. The company has also extended the range of wheelbases available for its D and D Wide ZEs from 3900mm to 6800mm, optimizing load distribution to cover more applications. Beyond distribution, Renault Trucks expects strong interest from operators of construction, construction materials and tippers concerned with offering the best possible service to their urban customers.

As part of its commitment to sustainable transport, Renault Trucks aims to offer the widest all-electric range on the market since 2020. The trucks contain neither CO2 nor NOx (nitrogen oxide) in use, which means that they can operate regardless of the restrictions put in place by local authorities, even during peak pollution periods. Silent, the Renault Trucks ZE range can be used in town centers at night without disturbing the sleep of local residents.

The 18 ton D Wide ZE is available to order now.
