The future for road freight transport has arrived with Renault Trucks’ all-electric heavy duty range
The arrival of Renault Trucks’ all-electric heavy-duty range – the E-Tech T and C – marks a major step forward in its commitment to decarbonising road freight transport, claims the company. Renault Trucks says it is now the only manufacturer to provide an electric mobility offer for all uses: from a 650kg cargo bike to a 44t electric tractor and construction truck.
The Renault Trucks 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.
Finally, the Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C feature the brand’s new logo with updated features. Placed on the front panel, the brushed aluminium diamond on a shiny black background gives the vehicles a modern and sophisticated look.
