On 16 November, Renault will give visitors to Solutrans, a trade fair for road and urban transport professionals, the opportunity to discover four new models from its light commercial vehicles range for the first time. The brand will also shine a light on its recognised expertise in adaptations and conversions, enabling professionals in all fields to find their ideal transport solution from its range. The current and future challenge of new forms of mobility will also be spotlighted with electric models such as the All-New Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric and the Master E-TECH Electric, and hydrogen in the Master H2-TECH.
Located in Hall 4, the Renault stand will welcome visitors to a vast and well laid-out space spanning 1,000 m2. Among the range of light commercial vehicles on show, Renault will exclusively present the following models to the public for the first time:
- The All-New Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric, which, in spring 2022, is set to replace a bestseller that has won the hearts of some 70,000 professional customers in Europe since its 2011 launch. The All-New Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric, made at the Renault Maubeuge plant in France and offering 300km range in WLTP[i] cycle, will meet most professional customers’ day-to-day requirements more closely than ever. Its 90kW engine, combined with a 45kWh capacity lithium-ion battery, can be used with three types of charger, including an optional 80kW rapid-charge DC charger that can recuperate 170km of range (WLTP cycle) in 30 minutes.
- The New Trafic, a small and entirely renewed van that differs from its predecessor with a more robust and dynamic front face, a completely redesigned and more practical and comfortable cabin, new and more powerful blue dCi engines, ranging from 110 to 170 horsepower, and fresh in-car technology for more information, connectivity and safety.
- The Master E-TECH Electric, a large electric van that has been kitted out with a new 52 kWh capacity lithium-ion battery, bringing its range up to 195 km according to the WLTPi cycle. Its 22 kW DC charger provides 80% charge in just two hours. The start of sales is scheduled for spring 2022.
- The Master chassis cab H2-TECH prototype, which optimizes in-car hydrogen technology and the potential for bespoke conversion, giving professionals the ability to transport large loads of up to 19 m3 and, with range of around 250 kmi, step up intensive usage
Harnessing its close partnerships with 63 certified French converters and a total of 400 certified converters worldwide, Renault provides the optimal solution for all its professional customers, accounting for all their specific needs and business sectors.
Of the 15 light commercial vehicles on show at the Renault stand, 13 are conversions – each representing the very best in expertise from a partner French certified converter.
As a pioneer and expert in electric mobility, with the Kangoo E-TECH Electric Renault has, since 2011, been the undisputed leader of the electric light commercial vehicle market in Europe.
And, to meet demand for greater range, Renault is also showing the Master chassis cab H2-TECH at its stand. This prototype was developed by HYVIA, a joint venture created by Renault with US company Plug-Power, a world leader in turnkey hydrogen solutions.
