Renault Trucks: from 2023 an electromodell in every market segment-every

Renault Trucks continues to invest in the electromobility. From 2023, the French commercial vehicle manufacturer in each market segment – distribution traffic, construction and long-distance traffic wants to have a fully electric series in the program. In order to support these developments and to bring a complete and competitive offer to the market, the company creates a unit that specializes in electromobility. Thus, Renault Trucks wants to reaffirm his commitment to a transportation without fossil energies.

In order to contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Paris Convention, to limit the global warming compared to the pre-industrial level to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius, Renault Trucks commit to a change in the truck market. This will be shaped by reducing the share of internal combustion engines and gradual electrification and should lead to a CO2 neutral vehicle fleet within 30 years. Since trucks have a lifespan of at least ten years, all trucks, which the manufacturer 2040 brings on the market, should be operated without fossil fuels. This change to a decarbonized transport should be dominated by electricity-powered commercial vehicles.

A z.E.-Saddle guy and a construction site version from 2023

In March 2020, Renault Trucks has begun in his work in Blainville-sur-Orne with the series production of its second generation of electric vehicles. With vehicles from 3.1 to 26 tons of the French truck manufacturers currently already have a wide range of fully electric commercial vehicles. With the models Renault Trucks D Z.E., D Wide Z.E. and Renault Trucks Master Z.E offers you solutions for the requirements of urban, supply and distribution traffic and for garbage pickup.

Renault Trucks wants to expand the electrification of its vehicles to all applications. The manufacturer prepares for example, from 2023 a Z.E.-Saddle tractors to bring to the market to meet the requirements of regional and national traffic. At the same time, there should be a fully electric construction site offer that is adapted to use in the urban environment.

From 2025 Renault Trucks wants to be able to offer vehicles for long-distance traffic, which are equipped with a fuel cell and powered by hydrogen.

“Electromobility is the cornerstone of our strategy and we want to be the first in this area. We strive for 2025 a share of ten percent of electric vehicles of our complete volume and 35 percent in 2030. In 2040, all our vehicle series are 100 percent driven without fossil fuels.”- Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks

To achieve these self-set goals, Renault Trucks uses specialized organizations, be it in research and development (F&E) or in the sales and after-sales organization. What the f&Equelising, Renault Trucks wants to tackle the most important technological challenges of this revolution by strategic partnerships, but also through the use of synergies within the Volvo Group to which the company belongs. So the volume could be increased and the cost will be.

In order to offer the transport company the best solutions in the field of electromobility, Renault Trucks can benefit from the work of the new development unit of the Volvo Group, which deals with medium-heavy trucks – a central segment for the gradual introduction of electric motority for trucks. Renault Trucks can also benefit from further partnerships developed by Volvo Energy, the new unit of the group for procurement, Second Life and recycling of the batteries as well as charging solutions. In the development of battery packs Renault Trucks also benefits from the strategic partnership of the Volvo Group with the battery manufacturer Samsung SDI.

In order to accompany this sustainable change, Renault Trucks also uses his new, good 33 million euros thousand&E-center in Lyon – the X-Tech Arena – whose construction should be completed in early 2023.

An electrical offer with high added value the customers

For the marketing of its Z.E-series and support of its customers, the manufacturer has formed a new unit for electromobility projects in order to contribute equally to the operational efficiency and satisfaction of the customers in terms of electrification. This team has acquired comprehensive expertise and work on the development of partnerships with all involved (transport companies, distribution services, authorities, energy suppliers, etc.) To offer intelligent, competitive electrical offers with added value for transport companies.

As far as the services concerned, Renault trucks responded to its own statement to integrate them into the vehicle’s vehicle to make the customer easier to make the customer who are looking for their application for their application. Accordingly, Renault also offers a complete package, the batteries, solutions for the installation of charging infrastructure with its customers, the optimization of the energy used, repair and maintenance as well as financing and insurance.

In this way, the company, which has set itself the goal of facilitating the life of his customers, wants to be a manufacturer who promises security. In this time of great changes and uncertainties, it is certainly exactly what means of transport companies most.

  1. So the big corporations in the world act.
    Such are not only in racing and car range sounding, no in the truck area you show how the hare has to run in the future to become cleaner on the street.

    So her Tesla brothers, stays nice, she will not argue against the Semi Truck either.

    But all the big ones have realized that as soon as it is mainly due to heavy dumplings on the long distance, worth mentioning, also to bring the hydrogen into play.

  2. That can not work differently. The Handelsblatt has launched it today.

    Also a good friend who works with one of the largest German city cleaning confirmed the battery truck 2T less payload as comparable fuel cells trucks. The hurdles regarding the power connection is not considered.
    Also at the car confirms me this consideration. Then no vehicle is economically refueled on the long-distance and the supposed cost advantage at BEV is there.
    I stay with it. Regional is the BEV the measure of all things. But on long-distance and in heavy duty traffic, you will not be over at the fuel cell.
