What can the new Renault Trafic E-Tech electric offer customers?

Our latest model provides all the practicality of the award-winning Renault Trafic, now in 100% electric. With a range of up to 183 miles (WTLP), fleet and business customers no longer have to worry about travelling longer distances. And the same goes for charging, the Trafic E-Tech electric comes with rapid DC charging up to 50kw as standard, meaning customers can charge up to 80% of the battery in less than an hour.

New Renault Trafic E-Tech comes in short and long wheelbase versions and a high roof version which is unique to the medium EV sector in the UK. Versatility comes as standard with up to 8.9m3 of load space, 4.15m maximum load length and 920kg towing capacity.

It offers optimised storage space and comfort throughout the cabin, plus generous levels of specification making every journey with Trafic more enjoyable and efficient.

The Renault Kangoo has won a string of awards in recent months. Why has it been so well received?

We are very proud to have won so many awards with the Renault Kangoo. It showcases Renault’s 40-plus years of strong success in the light commercial vehicle sector and reinforces that the model continues to be the benchmark in its class. It is proof that Kangoo is the best at meeting the varied needs of hard-working businesses, regardless of the powertrain customers opt for.

What has customer feedback been like with regards to the new Renault Master?

The feedback has been extremely positive; from the dramatic truck-like styling to the enhanced interior specification, there is a lot of excitement about the new model.

We hope that same excitement continues when customers first drive the Master, as it’s built with efficiency at its heart of the design. Diesel variants will see an improvement in CO2 emissions and MPG, whilst the E-Tech 100% electric version boosts a driving range of up to 285 miles, so no compromise on payloads.

The Renault Master’s high-grade interior mirrors that of a passenger vehicle. It will be  the first Renault LCV to offer the 10-inch open R-Link touchscreen with Google built-in, something which has been very well received on the Renault passenger car range. We’re looking forward to announcing full pricing and specification for the UK market in April.

Can Renault help customers with recharging infrastructure?

Mobilize Power Solutions is a subsidiary of Renault Group, providing charging solutions and infrastructure to go alongside our products. They offer a full end-to-end solution from the vehicle itself to the installation and management of charging for individual customers and fleets. New innovations like the “Fleet at home” service will be showcased at the CV show in April, where Mobilize Power Solutions will display their charging solutions alongside our E-Tech 100% electric range.

What will Renault have on its stand at the CV Show?

The Renault LCV stand will feature our full 100% electric E-Tech line-up, New Master E-Tech, New Trafic E-Tech and Kangoo E-Tech. It will be the first time the New Master E-Tech has been publicly showcased in the UK and we are very excited to show customers this impressive new model and the rest of the E-Tech LCV range. We will have Mobilize Power Solutions on the stand with us providing customers with our full end-to-end solution for electric LCVs.
