Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C, the first vehicles to feature the manufacturer’s new logo, will begin series production in 2023 at the Renault Trucks facility in Bourg-en-Bresse. They are already available for pre-order.
The introduction of Renault Trucks’ all-electric heavy-duty range represents a significant advancement in the manufacturer’s commitment to decarbonizing road freight transport. Renault Trucks is currently the only firm that offers electric mobility solutions for all applications, ranging from a 650 kg cargo bike to a 44 t electric tractor and construction truck, the design of which is now being shown.
These new models, which are intended for regional distribution and building, feature an electric drive design. Designers at Renault Trucks make adjustments to the front end while retaining ideal overall harmony.
The Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C have the brand’s characteristic graphic signature for electric trucks: blue hubcaps and a vertical stripe on the sides of the vehicle, as well as the Renault Trucks E-Tech emblem on the front. They also have a new Emblem plate made of blue plexiglass.
To improve safety, the vehicles’ fronts have been pushed forward by 115 mm, and radars have been installed on the sides. The chassis also incorporates a retractable step, which increases the amount of room available for the batteries.
Renault Trucks’ designers drew inspiration for the fully redesigned front panel from the realm of electronic music, with a pattern suggestive of an equaliser. The front of the trucks is totally painted to emphasise the electromechanical impression.
Finally, the Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C have been upgraded with the brand’s new logo and features. The brushed aluminium diamond on a shiny black backdrop on the front panel provides the vehicles a stylish appearance.
Renault Trucks branches in Europe are now taking pre-orders for the E-Tech T and C. Heavy-duty haulers that want to buy an electric vehicle may already secure the first production slots. The Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C will be manufactured in Bourg-en-Bresse, France, beginning in late 2023.
