RENAULT TRUCKS ELECTRIC RANGE WINS A ‘TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE AWARD’ IN THE UK
The French truck manufacturer has won the ‘Technical Excellence Award’ for its fully electric range, at the 2021 Motor Transport Awards, in London, on September, 2nd.
During the 35th edition of The Motor Transport Awards 2021, held in London on September 2nd, the Renault Trucks Z.E. range won the “Technical Excellence Award”. Selected by an independent judging panel of senior industry figures, the award recognises the vehicle manufacturer that has demonstrated the best technical solutions to meet their customers’ operational needs.
The judges noted that the French manufacturer gave an insight into the future of sustainable transport for operators looking for proven, mainstream ways to address the net-zero challenge. Judges also liked that Renault Trucks already has vehicles in operation in the UK.
Receiving the award, Carlos Rodrigues, Managing Director Renault Trucks UK & Ireland said: “Renault Trucks has championed the zero emission journey for the UK transport industry, so to be recognised with the Motor Transport Technical Excellence Award for our fully electric range is hugely exciting. The move to zero carbon solutions is the single most significant change in our industry and will benefit the whole society.” He continues: “For Renault Trucks to be recognised, not just for the technical excellence of our Z.E. models, but also our collaborative approach to the transformation is very satisfying. We hope this award will be a springboard to many operators’ move to a more sustainable future – starting today!”
Renault Trucks 100% electric range from 3.1t to 26t GVW (Master Z.E., D Z.E., D Wide Z.E. and D Wide Z.E. Low Entry Cab) answers today’s pressing need to improve air quality and reduce noise pollution in our cities. From 2023, an all-electric Renault Trucks offer will be available for all sectors, distribution, construction and long distance. The French manufacturer has committed that 10% of its total sales (vehicles over 12t) will be electric by the end of 2025, rising to 35% in 2030 and by 2040, all its vehicle ranges will be 100% fossil-free.
