Renault adds more power to the Master

Renault Trucks has introduced a larger battery for its Master ZE electric van that boosts its range to 118 miles.

The new 52kWh battery pack replaces a 33kWh unit, which provided a range of 75 miles.

Renault Trucks says the new battery makes the Master ZE the “ideal work tool for professionals operating in urban environments” and claims the vehicle can cover more than 150 miles per charge in city driving. It can also be charged more quickly, reaching 80% in two hours.

The electric vehicle is equipped with reversing cameras and a blind spot mirror. There is also a voice alert system, which warns pedestrians of the vehicle’s approach when it is travelling at less than 18mph.
