Hello Renault Master ZE Hydrogen
Groupe Renault, with its experience in light commercial vehicles and as a pioneer and leader in electric light commercial vehicles in Europe, completes its offer with Renault KANGOO Z.E. Hydrogen at the end of 2019 and Renault MASTER Z.E. Hydrogen in 2020.
The hydrogen fuel cell provides the additional energy for up to 3 times more range than 100% electric vehicles with a charging time of only 5 to 10 minutes.
Hydrogen is arriving at Renault as a complementary solution to its electric and hybrid strategy, to offer professionals a new solution for access to city centers, by removing the brake on autonomy for certain uses.
The Hydrogen powered van will use the same electric drive system as the standard ZE, but the addition of hydrogen tanks means a far longer range is achievable ensuring it is the perfect work mans van!
The vehicles are equipped with a range extender fuel cell providing electric and thermal power of 10 kW, increasing the range of Renault MASTER Z.E. Hydrogen to over 350 km.
Renault MASTER Z.E. Hydrogen will triple the range from 120 km to 350* km and will be available in van (two versions) and chassis cab (two versions). Equipped with two hydrogen tanks located under the car body, the vehicle will gain in versatility with no compromises on the load volume from 10,8 m3 to 20 m3 with a reasonable additional weight of 200 kg.
Renault have stated “These hydrogen electric vehicles operate with a fuel cell, which combines hydrogen from its tanks with oxygen from the air to produce electricity (to power the electric motor). The first advantage: these vehicles meet the new environmental challenges of urban mobility. In addition, they offer increased autonomy, fast hydrogen recharging (from 5 to 10 minutes) and easy maintenance. These advantages make hydrogen electric light commercial vehicles particularly suitable for the intensive needs and uses of professionals in large urban areas up to the periphery of cities: transport and logistics, urban deliveries and multi-technical services, municipal and local authority services, express and special mail”
If your in need of a electric van with a longer range, this is certainly one to keep an eye out for!
