Renault Trucks France will be taking part in the 16th Solutrans trade fair, to be held from 16 to 20 November 2021 at Lyon-Eurexpo. The French manufacturer will be presenting its transport solutions on a stand of over 700 m2.
Renault Trucks has announced its presence at the forthcoming Solutrans, the international exhibition of road and urban transport solutions, which will be taking place from 16 to 20 November 2021 at the Eurexpo exhibition centre in the manufacturer’s historic home town of Lyon. For this 16th edition, Renault Trucks will be exhibiting 7 vehicles on a stand of over 700 m2 (aisle 4; stand 4D104) divided into several areas:
Electric & urban mobility
Renault Trucks is committed to transforming energy, focusing in particular on electric mobility. With its all-electric Renault Trucks Z.E. range, manufactured in France, the manufacturer offers vehicles with zero emissions in use, which preserve air quality and help to reduce congestion in cities. These trucks can be driven regardless of the restrictions in place in urban areas.
Visitors to Solutrans will have the opportunity to see a 16t D Z.E. and a 26t D Wide Z.E. on the Renault Trucks stand.
Two all-electric Renault Trucks Master Z.E. commercial vehicles will also be showcased on the stand. One will be fitted with a Solight composite body, while the other will feature interior fittings designed especially for courier services.
In this area dedicated to electric and urban mobility, Renault Trucks will also share its vision of urban mobility of the future.
Energy efficiency of the T, T High, C and K ranges
A Renault Trucks T High Evolution 2021 on display on the stand will show visitors to Solutrans the developments made this year by the manufacturer on its High range. Major improvements have been made in terms of both driving comfort and on-board comfort. This is the most important evolution since the total renewal of the range in 2013.
Meanwhile, Renault Trucks is continuing its efforts to make its diesel vehicles ever more efficient in terms of fuel consumption and the reduction of CO2 emissions. At Solutrans, the manufacturer will be presenting the latest developments in this area on its top range.
Renault Trucks will also be exhibiting a T 480 running on B100. In 2020, the manufacturer launched a joint offer with Saipol (Avril Group) aimed at accelerating the development of Oleo100, a 100% French rapeseed fuel that replaces diesel. Bolstered by the success of this offer, Renault Trucks now offers an irreversible B100 option, which guarantees the exclusive use of B100.
Renault Trucks is committed to extending the life of its vehicles. The manufacturer offers reconditioned trucks, notably by carrying out repairs and upgrades on its customers’ trucks.
Renault Trucks has also created the Used Trucks Factory, which specialises in the reconversion of used vehicles and is located within the Bourg-en-Bresse factory. In this workshop, tractors are adapted to worksite supply (T X-Road), converted into rigids (T P-Road) and vehicles are modified to meet the requirements of the African and Middle Eastern markets (T X-Port and T X64).
In addition, Renault Trucks is recycling, by dismantling end-of-life trucks to recover parts that can be renovated, as well as reusable raw materials that will then be reintroduced into the circuit.
As an integral part of this approach, the Renault Trucks used trucks business will be represented at Solutrans, with a new limited series Renault Trucks T Selection and the launch of the new Renault Trucks Used Trucks brand: Used Trucks by Renault Trucks.
Finally, Renault Trucks will be devoting an area to the rental offers of its Clovis Location franchise. This specialist in the rental of Renault Trucks commercial and industrial vehicles will be presenting its short, medium and long term turnkey rental offers.
