Renault Master Z.E .: Electric cast last kilometer as an alternative to e-Volkswagen Crafter
C Brussels, a lounge focused on commercial vehicles, Renault has introduced a new electric vehicle, which adds to the Renault Twizy Cargo, Renault Zoe Renault Kangoo Societé and Z.E. Covering an empty space so far competition, Renault Master Z.E. arrives to offer an alternative zero emissions cast of "last kilometer". Thus, the French would face Volkswagen, which recently debuted one, even prototype electric version of its Crafter.
The Renault Master Z.E. It is based on the conventional Renault Master, but replaces its turbodiesel engine by an electric motor. This electric motor is called R75, and has been developed by Renault. It is based on the electric motor of R90 Renault Zoe, we have recently analyzed in Diariomotor. Is a engine 76 hp, we crave scarce for weight and volume of the Master. With 200 Nm of torque, its work is relegated to an urban area. Its tip shall not exceed 80 km / h.
Although Renault has offered no definitive performance data, we know that has a range of 200 km according to NEDC cycle. In real operating conditions, it will stay at about 130 kilometers. It's not a big number but enough for urban delivery services, or utility van. Administrations are certainly an important customer for this van, the first version will go on sale later this year, complementing the Renault Kangoo Z.E.
Use a new battery, a "Z.E. 33 "of new development and 33 kWh of capacity, in which most certainly be helped LG Chem. This is the same battery of renewed Renault Kangoo Z.E., of which I spoke a few days ago, thanks to its 270 km of autonomy NEDC. With an outlet wallbox 7 kW, reaches a load of 100% in 7 hours. As for design, the Renault Master Z.E. not distinguished from a conventional Master, beyond some small emblem in which very few people will notice.
In fact, the outlet is in the same place is the mouth of the fuel tank in a Master combustion.
