Renault Trucks will be taking part in the 17th Solutrans trade fair, presenting its solutions for low-carbon transport.
Held at Lyon-Eurexpo from November 21 to 25, 2023, Renault says its presentation embodies the three pillars of its strategy to reduce CO2 emissions.
This involves producing trucks with ever-improving energy efficiency, providing all-electric solutions for emission-free transport during use, extending the life of its vehicles under a circular approach, and working on solutions for 100 per cent carbon-free last-mile logistics.
Visitors to Solutrans will have the chance to see the brand-new Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C on the stand.
These trucks, which are designed for regional distribution and urban construction, go into series production in November at the Renault Trucks plant in Bourg-en-Bresse.
Renault Trucks E-Tech D will also be on show, featuring its new front design.
The medium-duty vehicle will be equipped with new features to improve safety in urban areas, both for drivers and other road users. They are due to come into force in July 2024.
Light Commercial vehicles will also be showcased with an all-electric Renault Trucks E-Tech Trafic joining the range, and a second commercial vehicle unveiled at the traditional press conference on November 22.
Two Kleuster Freegônes e-cargo bikes for professionals will be on view, with the first having a dry cell capable of carrying a 300kg payload with a usable volume of 2m3, while the second will be in a “food” configuration.
These reliable, durable and cost-effective e-assisted three-wheelers are now assembled at Renault Trucks’ production site in Vénissieux and distributed through its network.
Aside from electric mobility, Renault Trucks also provides trucks with ever-improving energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The manufacturer will be exhibiting a Renault Trucks T DE 13 litre – 480 bhp Turbo Compound that benefits from the very latest improvements to the heavy-duty range.
The manufacturer has optimised cab fittings to combine comfort and ergonomics, as well as equipped its trucks with advanced driver assistance technology to improve safety on the roads (GSR).
Its heavy-duty vehicles can run on B100 fuel and are suitable for long-distance haulage, distribution and construction.
The circular economy is at the heart of Renault Trucks’ approach to reducing the use of natural resources and the environmental impact of its trucks, so Renault Trucks France will be presenting Restart, its commercial offer of reconditioned used trucks.
The aim of this regeneration scheme is to extend the operating life of trucks for customers rather than replacing them with new vehicles.
