Renault to launch fully electric trucks in 2019

Apr 18, 2018
Renault Trucks has said it will launch a range of fully electric vehicles in 2019. These all-electric trucks are primarily designed for use in urban and inter-city situations and will be produced at the Renault Truck’s plant at Blainville-sur-Orne in Normandy, France.

Renault to launch fully electric trucks in 2019Renault Trucks has been investing heavily in research and development around electromobility since 2009, including extensive field testing in partnership with customers including Carrefour and Nestlé. The tests have provided Renault Trucks with vital information on conditions of use, battery behavior, recharging facilities and specific maintenance requirements for electric trucks.

Nigel Butler, Commercial Director of Renault Trucks UK said, “As we transition to a lower carbon economy, electric trucks are driving the future for urban operations - we excitedly await production availability for our UK customers.”

In addition to the great strides made in understanding customer uses and market requirements, Renault Trucks has taken advantage of the impressive R&D resources offered by the Volvo Group. Thanks to these economies of scale, Renault Trucks is now in a position to market a cost-effective range of vehicles from 2019.

A dedicated assembly line for all-electric trucks is currently being installed at Renault’s plant in Blainville-sur-Orne.
