Renault Trucks is now offering an 18-tonne electric D Wide Z.E, joining its 16 and 26-tonne model stablemates.
It is also offering a wider range of wheelbases and special connectivity for reefer bodies, with 3,900mm to 6,800mm now available.
Equipped with a two-axle chassis, Renault Trucks said the 18-tonne Z.E. is ideal for temperature-controlled distribution, with an optimised payload.

In addition, it has designed a new system to increase the energy efficiency of all-electric trucks equipped with a refrigerated body.
All Renault Trucks D Z.E. and D Wide Z.E trucks are now available with a fridge-connection option, which supplies the energy required for the refrigeration system directly from the vehicle’s 600 V traction batteries.
As they are silent, the Renault Trucks Z.E. range can be used in city centres at night.
