Renault Trucks offers low-entry cab for D Wide Z.E. full-electric rigid18 February 2021

Renault Trucks is introducing a new low entry cab for urban applications, including waste and distribution. The D Wide Z.E. Low Entry Cab is said to offer improved ergonomics, visibility and safety.

Accommodating the driver and up to three operatives, the cab design enables greater movement within the vehicle, and easier and safer access and egress from a vehicle entry height 200mm lower than a standard Renault Trucks D cab. An additional ‘kneel’ function can drop the front of the vehicle a further 70mm. This combination offers easier access reducing strain and fatigue for crews on urban cycles that require them to climb in and out of the cab up to 100 times a day.

Developed in close co-operation with bodybuilder Estepe, the Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. LEC is offered as a 6x2 rigid tag with steered rear axle. As well as refuse collection, Renault Trucks expects strong interest from light construction, building supplies and distribution operators keen to offer the best possible service to their urban customers.

Carlos Rodrigues, managing director, Renault Trucks UK & Ireland, says: “The introduction of a low entry cab model opens up those vehicle types where ease of access and sensitivity to vulnerable road users are particular priorities, including domestic refuse collection and urban delivery services.”

Production of the Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E. LEC commenced in February 2021.
