Renault Trafic Van E-Tech: the utility vehicle goes electric

Renault is completing its range of 100% electric utility vehicles with the presentation of the Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electric, which offers up to 322 km of autonomy.

The Renault Trafic is a true bestseller which has sold more than 2.4 million copies since 1980. The new generation of the Trafic Van is now offered in a 100% electric version, with the arrival of the Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electricwhich completes Renault’s range of electric utility vehicles, which also includes the Renault Kangoo Van E-Tech Electric and Master E-Tech Electric.

The Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electric will be manufactured this year in France, at the Sandouville factory, in Seine-Maritime, which also manufactures the thermal versions of the French utility vehicle, but also the Nissan Primastar. Today, nearly 600 Renault Trafics leave the Sandouville production lines every day, or one Trafic every 80 seconds. The electric motor as well as the chargers are manufactured at the Renault plant in Cléon, in Normandy, while the battery is assembled in Flins, in Île-de-France.

Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electric: 2 lengths and 2 heights

The Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electric offers numerous versions to meet the needs of all professional customers: the catalog offers the choice between two lengths (5.08 m and 5.48 m) and two heights (1,967 m and 2,498 m), with a loading volume (in van mode) ranging from 5.8 m3 to 8.9 m3.

On the extended “L2” version with the “long loading” hatch located in the partition, the Trafic Van E-Tech Electric offers a loading length of up to 4.15 meters, while the towing capacity is 920 kg with a payload of 1.1 tonnes.

The model is also available in a cabin floor version, and numerous customization possibilities are possible thanks to a network of more than 359 approved bodybuilders.

Up to 322 km of electric range

This 100% electric version has a lithium-ion battery guaranteed for 8 years or 160,000 km, with a capacity of 52 kWhwhich gives it autonomy that can go up to 297 km en cycle WLTP.

Electric motorization is developing 122 horsepower and 245 Nm of torque, with an Eco mode limiting the vehicle’s power to optimize autonomy. A “long range” version limited to 90 km/h pushes theautonomy at 322 km.

For recharging, Renault offers a 7 kW single-phase alternating current charger, as well as a 22 kW alternating current charger, allowing you to recover 50 km of range in less than 25 minutes. A 50 kW fast charger direct current will be launched next year, to offer even faster recharges.
