Renault has launched a new 3.5t version of its Master Z.E. electric van.

Previously offered only as a 3.1t model, the new 3.5t version brings the Master Z.E. in line with its diesel equivalent.

It is available as a panel van, with volumes between 9m3 and 13m3 and up to 1,490kg payload; as a platform cab, with payloads up to 1,740kg and conversions such as a Luton Low Loader (pictured) possible; and as a new chassis cab, with a maximum payload of 1,620kg and possible conversions including Tipper, Dropside and Luton Box Van.

Renault claims the additional body options mean the Master Z.E. now offers the widest range of variants for an electric commercial vehicle.

The powertrain is the same as that found in the 3.1t Master Z.E., comprising a 77hp motor with 225nm of torque, and a 33kWh battery, meaning a driving range of up to 75 miles.

A full battery charge is possible in six hours with a 7kW wallbox.

Prices for the 3.5t Master Z.E. start at £52,000, excluding VAT and including the government’s plug-in van grant. Orders will open in August.
