Renault Trucks has launched a free smartphone app that simulates driving a truck in typical operational situations. TruckSimulator allows players to test Renault Trucks’ T, C, K and D vehicles on a work site, urban environment or on the open road.

“The app presents a variety of situations which correspond to those that drivers can come up against throughout their careers,” explains Franck Nallet, Head of Digital Communication at Renault Trucks. “This application puts Renault Trucks’ T, C, K and D into context and enables everyone to discover our new Euro-6 range in an entertaining way.”

Players can choose the environment in which they want to drive, which will determine the type of assignments they carry out. If they choose the Long Distance assignment, their objective is to achieve the highest journey speed, while consuming as little fuel as possible. Players who opt for Construction assignments will be given the task of keeping their entire load on board at all times.

As far as Distribution is concerned, the assignment is to deliver parcels in their respective districts, while respecting the restrictions imposed on urban deliveries, particularly speed limits.

This app allows users to personalise the vehicles by changing their colour, measure performance against others as well as challenging friends on Facebook.

The application is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play.
