East Midlands Renault truck dealer RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has had a great start to the year, having just received an order for 20 trucks, worth over £1.3m from Charthire.
Nottingham (Tollerton) based Charthire has ordered the new greener Renault vehicles ahead of changes to legislation in 18 months time which will mean all commercial vehicles will have to have reduced emissions.

The £1.3m capital investment of Renault Premium Tractor units is part of Charthire’s long-term plan ahead of the Euro 6 exhaust legislation aimed at reducing emissions. This legislation is part of a wider global approach to reducing harmful emissions from commercial vehicles, which comes into force in 2014.
Paul Pearson Director at RHCV said: “This is a fantastic start to the year and a great boost to the team here. New legislation that comes into force next year is going to impact on all operators of commercial vehicles and Renault have both trucks and vans to meet all sizes and specifications.”
