Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles is attending the annual Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham for the twentieth time from 24th to 26th of Aprll, with a raft of new conversions on display, offering even more customer choice than before to suit their business needs.
Headlining the show will be the soon-to-be-launched Renault Master Z.E. With a real-world range of 74 miles, the Master Z.E. aims to be the perfect solution for urban last mile deliveries, offering a balance between range, payload and charging time that is ideally suited to this type of use. Orders are due to open later in 2018 with deliveries following in the winter.
With 13 vehicles on display, Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles continues to have one of the largest stands at the show. As ever, Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles strives to provide an “EasyLife for Professionals” and the latest selection of conversions do just that.
Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Groupe Renault UK said: “Renault’s aim with LCVs is to offer professionals an easy, seamless experience with their van that enhances their business. The new conversions on display do exactly that and take Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles into new sectors of the market, whilst the forthcoming Master Z.E. adds to our electric LCV range, re-enforcing our position as Europe’s leader in electric vans.”
The new aluminium-bodied Renault Master double cab tipper, for example, provides all the strength and robustness of regular steel tippers. However, due to its lightweight construction, it offers up to an additional 100kg payload, meaning customers can carry more, increasing the efficiency in the way that they work.
Similarly, the Renault Tech Parcel delivery conversion for the Master – that was developed in association with delivery giants UPS – features an innovative walk-through bulkhead. This means the operator can access his cargo without getting out of the van, saving time and minimising the risk of being in the road for extended periods, whilst maximising efficiency.
Another Renault Tech conversion collaboration, this time with Alliance Healthcare, is shown in the form of the Master Pharma van. With a fully washable, lightweight, insulated lining and floor, the Master Pharmaceutical Pharma Van maintains temperatures between 15-25ºC with a data recorder and temperature display to ensure the load hasn’t been compromised in transit. Both Renault Tech conversions are converted at the factory premises and arrive in the UK ready to work.
The Master Luton LoLoader on display, containing a special, race inspired guest, offers class leading weight capacity as well as the lowest loading height in the segment. The LoLoader conversion is part of the Renault OTS (Off The Shelf) conversion program. With specific conversions stocked and ready to be fitted locally.
Amongst two firsts on display for the Renault Trafic is the Cherry Picker conversion, supplied by accredited converter CPL, which delivers up to 9.2 metres working height with full 360 degree boom operation. The Trafic is the ideal base of this conversion, given its smaller proportions when compared to the usual cherry picker conversions, offering users that are required to operate in tighter, urban environments, a tailor-made solution.
The other new addition to the Trafic range is the Camper conversion called Esterela. Designed and fitted by the fully accredited Lunar Campers. With an elevation roof, compressor fridge, glass top hob, sink, fresh and waste water tanks plus a 100W solar panel, it has everything required for a relaxing break.
Also, the multi-award winning Renault Kangoo Z.E. 33 will be shown in both panel van and fridge van forms. CoolKit, the fully accredited manufacturers of the Fridge Van, have designed the Kangoo Z.E. 33 conversion to place no demand on the vehicle power supply. With no reduction in range, the Kangoo Z.E. 33 delivers a real-world usable range of 124 miles. The temperature control system can operate as either a chiller, between 0-8º, or as a freezer unit all the way down to -18º.
Finally, the stand will also include, the Trafic Passenger – with seating for up to 9 passengers (including driver), the Trafic crew van - with seating for 6 and a large load space, the Trafic Formula Edition – fitted with Ready4Work by Sortimo racking and the Kangoo Maxi Crew van, fitted with Auto EDC gearbox and multi-positional bulkhead.
