Renault will start selling electric trucks in 2019

Renault Trucks has announced that it will launch a range of electric vehicles in 2019 after ten years of testing in real-life conditions with its customer-partners.

These all-electric trucks are primarily designed for use in urban and inter-city situations and will be produced at the Renault Trucks plant at Blainville-sur-Orne in Normandy, France.

The full-electric 12-16 tonne trucks have undergone real-world tests with customers such as Speed Distribution for Guerlain, Stef for Carrefour, Nestlé and the Delanchy Group. These trials have provided Renault Trucks with vital information on conditions of use, battery behaviour, recharging facilities and specific maintenance requirements for electric trucks.

“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,” comments Nigel Butler, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK.

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