Renault has expanded its electric Master ZE range, which now includes a chassis cab version and an increased payload across the entire range.
The new Master ZE range offers the choice of panel van, platform cab and chassis cab, with three lengths (L1, L2, L3), two heights (H1, H2) and a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 3.1 or 3.5 tons, allowing up to 1,700kg of payload before conversion.
The complete Master ZE range offers a WLTP range of 75 miles and full recharge in six hours from a 7kW Wallbox or Public Charging Point. Renault claims this makes it ideal for zero-emission-in-use last-mile deliveries.
Renault’s new chassis cab version has a maximum payload of 1,620 kg before conversion. The Master ZE chassis cab allows for a range of conversions including tipper, dropside and Luton box van. For example, a Master ZE equipped with a 20 m3 large volume box and a tail lift guarantees 1,000 kg of payload.
Meanwhile the two platform cab versions now available have a payload up to 1,740 kg. This increased payload allows for larger conversions, including the possibility of a Luton Low-Loader of up to 20 m3, with the advantage of a low loading sill.
Finally, there are four panel van versions available, with volumes between 9 and 13 m3 and up to 1,490 kg of payload. This increased payload makes it possible to transport heavier equipment or even to convert into a minibus.
The models will be available to order from October. Prices will be announced in due course.
