Renault continues its electrical revolution
New Master Z.E. electric commercial vehicle offers proven drivetrain, ample load capacity and ultra low emissions.
Renault will launch a full electric version of the Master van in the fourth quarter of this year, offering a range of more than 70 miles in real world conditions.*
For businesses that require commercial vehicles for urban-based work and multiple short delivery drop routes, the Master Z.E. will be available as a panel van in three wheelbases and two roof heights, offering load volumes of 8-13m3. There will also be L2 and L3 versions of the Master as a platform cab for conversions.
A genuine workhorse for in-town deliveries
- Master Z.E. is a great van for business users working in urban areas, with a reversing camera (with a screen built into the inside rear-view mirror) or reversing radar.
- Master Z.E.'s cab still provides maximum comfort for the driver and front passengers and features a genuine mobile office space with an optional passenger seat swivel table and document holder, as well as a large number of ergonomic storage compartments.
- There is an optional multimedia centre for the users, with the R-LINK* system: TomTom™ with voice command, range management, navigation to plan trips, etc.
- Master Z.E. also maintains Master's excellent ride and handling. It keeps the latter's robust, expressive design and active and passive security.
Master Z.E.'s 74 mile real-world driving range** makes it highly-suitable for day-to-day last-mile deliveries and other business activities in urban areas.
A full charge takes just six hours with the 32A/7.4 kW WallBox.
Prices will be announced in Q3 2018
*For compatible devices, please refer to https://www.renault.co.uk/services/multimedia/bluetooth-compatibility.html Compatibility: An Android phone running Android 5.0 (Lollipop), an iPhone no earlier than iPhone 5 & iOS7.1. Connecting a smartphone to access Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ should only be done when the vehicle is safely parked. Drivers should only use the system when it is safe to do so and in compliance with the requirements of The Highway Code. Drivers should be aware of the potential of hands-free technology to distract a driver’s attention from the road, preventing them from having full control of the vehicle or words to the equivalent.
**Homologated range according to NEDC test cycle, for comparison purposes, 124 miles, and may not reflect real life driving results. The NEDC can best be compared to the combined mpg figure for petrol and diesel cars. This range is a comparative indication of range measured under very specific conditions (described below). Exactly as with petrol and diesel cars, when driven under real conditions, this range will vary according to speed, driving style, the terrain of the road and the use of air conditioning / heating. NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) is a standard European measurement of emissions and consumption based on a rolling road test. It is the same standard for petrol and diesel engines as it is for electric cars. It is an objective way to measure the performance gaps between competition models. The car is on a rolling road, undertaking the same urban cycle (ECE-15 cycle) three times, then the extra-urban cycle once. The average of these 4 cycles decides the NEDC range. ^Payload equals the Maximum Operating Mass (Gross Vehicle Mass or GVW) less the Kerb Mass. Kerb Mass is the weight of the complete vehicle including coolant, oil, the battery, spare wheel and jack, but excluding driver and crew. All Kerb Masses, and therefore Payloads quoted are subject to a 5% manufacturing tolerance and are based on the base level model. Any additional equipment added (options or accessories), or the selection of a higher trim level, could result in a higher Kerb Mass and a reduced Payload, and may increase CO2 and decrease MPG figures.
