The French manufacturer is unveiling the fourth generation of the Renault Master at the Solutrans trade show for transport professionals, which opens in Lyon.
With over 3 million copies sold since the launch of the very first generation in 1980, the Renault Master is a large, essential utility vehicle on our roads. On the occasion of the 17th edition of solutrans the biennial exhibition for transport professionals, which opens its doors from November 21 to 25, 2023 at Eurexpo Lyon, Renault lifts the veil on the fourth generation of his Master’s degree.
“With New Renault Master, we sought to get as close as possible to the definition of the ideal van. Craftsmen, entrepreneurs and fleet managers will find with it a van that takes a real leap forward, capable of supporting them at all times to achieve maximum productivity. A van that can be counted on as a true partner in everyday professional life, whatever the type of energy”declared on this occasion Hélène Carvalho, head of the Renault Master program.
This new generation of the Renault Master offers a more modern and assertive design, with lines worked to optimize aerodynamics, and reduce its Scx by more than 20%. The massive front end features the new Renault logo, as well as full LED headlights with a C-shaped light signature. As standard, we find a range of 7 body colors but also more than 300 special shades optional.
Inside, the new Master is inspired by the brand’s latest productions, with a dashboard oriented towards the driver and featuring a 10 inch touch screen, equipped with the OpenR Link connected multimedia system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wired and wireless. Storage space offers a total of 135 liters on board, with multiple accommodations, while the driving position can be transformed into a bureau mobile thanks to the folding central seat backrest.
Under the hood, there are four versions of the Blue dCi diesel engine of 105, 130, 150 and 170 horsepower all associated with a manual gearbox or a new 9-speed EAG9 automatic gearbox. Two 100% electric E-Tech engines are also offered, with versions of 96 kW (131 horsepower) or 105 kW (143 horsepower) and 300 Nm of torque, respectively offering batteries of 40 kWh (180 km of WLTP autonomy) and 87 kWh (more than 410 km of WLTP range). A H2-Tech version equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell is also expected for 2025.
On the technology side, the new Renault Master features no less than 20 driving assistance systems : we find in particular the lateral stabilization assistant, the AEBS automatic emergency braking, the trailer driving assistant, or the Intelligent Speed Assistant, which helps the driver to respect speed limits.
Electric Renault Masters also offer V2X functions: Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) and Vehicle-To-Grid (V2G), to use the vehicle’s battery to power external devices, using a socket in the passenger compartment, in the loading space or with an adapter to plug into the charging socket. The bidirectional charger also makes it possible to integrate into the local electricity network and deliver energy.
As with previous generations, the Renault Master IV will be produced in France in the Renault-Sovab factory (Society of Motor Vehicles of Batilly) of Batilly, located near Metz in Meurthe-et-Moselle (54).
To discover the new Renault Master, the diamond brand invites us to the Solutrans show, which is being held from November 21 to 25, 2023 at Eurexpo Lyon. Its marketing is expected for the spring 2024.
