Renault unveils new urban vehicles at Freight in the City Expo26 October 2017

Renault Trucks will be unveiling new vehicles at next month’s Freight in the City Expo (Alexandra Palace, London; 7 November), including a new urban concept truck.

Promising the load capacity of an eight-wheeler with the manoeuvrability of a six-wheeler, the Range C320 8x4 tridem (pictured) has a 2.3m cab variant and comes with factory-fitted extra axle adaption. The smaller, lower cab has a factory-fitted ‘vision’ window and shorter front overhang.

Its rear-lifting axle, meanwhile, enables a tighter turning circle and keeps the vehicle closer to the kerb when turning left – reducing the high-risk gap for cyclists.

Also on show will be a Range D18 Wide 4x2 R Low 250 E6 with Boughton’s skiploader body – Renault’s lowest entry Range D skiploader with a step height of 375mm.

Equipped with factory-fitted vision window in the nearside door, the vehicle is specified with full CLOCS safety system including cycle sensors and the Roadcrew 4 camera system with recorder.

Renault will also be showcasing two vehicles from its pre-bodied LCV ‘Ready for Business’ range – a Master Welfare van and a Master Optilogistics van – with its third party convertor Bri-Stor Systems.

The Master 3T5 Welfare van L3H2, designed using new composite materials, provides a comfortable, legally-compliant environment for up to seven operatives, their tools and PPE to be moved to and from site safely within the 3,500kg threshold.It has a fully-equipped relaxation area with kitchenette, as well as storage and toilet facilities, and is available in FWD, RWD and a new 4x4 driveline.

The Master Optilogistics, meanwhile, is designed for multi-drop operations in the parcel and logistics sector, and is available at 3,500kg or 4,500kg.
