Renault introduces the Master E-Tech Electric, an electric van game-changer with 460km range

  • Renault’s Master E-Tech Electric: 460 km WLTP range, 27% reduced power consumption.
  • Features two optimised batteries, robust powertrain, and efficient charging, maintaining payload and towing.
  • Innovative “Aerovan” design positions it as a leader in electric van efficiency and performance.

Renault’s latest electric van, the Master E-Tech Electric, is coming this year

Renault’s Master E-Tech Electric is set to revolutionise the electric van scene in Europe. The best part is an impressive WLTP range of up to 460 km on a single charge. The van’s strength lies in its innovative design and a meticulously optimised platform. That results in a notable 27% cut in power consumption compared to its predecessor.

Crafted from scratch to redefine electric vans, the Master E-Tech Electric introduces two battery options—40 kWh and 87 kWh—carefully tailored for maximum efficiency in capacity, size, and mass. This design ensures commendable payload capacity without compromising the van’s overall efficiency.

This van comes with two major features: the “Aerovan” concept and the multi-energy platform. The “Aerovan” design enhances efficiency and reduces the van’s SCx by over 20%.

The van features a robust powertrain, integrating a 300 Nm/105 kW motor and a transmission system with one of the highest ratios in the heavy electric van market. The van has a maximum authorised laden mass of 4 tonnes and an unprecedented towing capability of 2.5 tonnes.

Efficiency is key, with this van consuming 27% less energy than its predecessor.

The van’s payload capacity stands at an impressive 1,625 kg. This maintains reasonable consumption at 21 kWh/100 km (WLTP) with the 87 kWh battery.

Charging the Master E-Tech Electric is a streamlined process, with a 130 kW DC fast charge delivering 252 km of range in just 30 minutes. An AC home Wallbox with a 22 kW capacity ensures a full battery from 10% to 100% in under 4 hours.

Beyond technical specifications, the Master E-Tech Electric embraces Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) capabilities. That enables users to charge devices and power tools directly from the van’s battery. Additionally, the van supports Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) functionality, contributing energy back to the grid through a bidirectional charger.

The van’s smart features enhance the user experience, with Google Maps offering optimised itineraries based on preferences and the My Renault app providing tailored services for EVs. 

Ready to hit the market in spring 2024, the Master E-Tech Electric signifies Renault’s commitment to pioneering innovation and sustainable transportation. It extends the lineup of major, highly capable electric vans on the market right now. The fight for the lead in the electric van world is only just beginning.
