Renault Trucks and the Delanchy Group commitment to Electric Mobility. The Delanchy Group and Renault Trucks continue to work together in support of increasingly eco-friendly freight transportation. The freight carrier, which has been using a 100% electric Renault Trucks D prototype since 2017, has just received the very first D Z.E. series model.
“A committed haulage contractor in terms of electric mobility, we were keen to be involved in developing a zero-emissions refrigerated delivery solution for city centres,” explains Yannig Renault, Technical Director at the Delanchy Group. “We were able to test and validate this technology thanks to the 100% electric Renault Trucks D prototype, which we were pleased with both in terms of its use and maintenance.
Our staff and customers are equally satisfied, which is why the Delanchy Group has confirmed its commitment to electric mobility by ordering the very first Renault Trucks D Z.E. series. This second electric carrier will join our fleet and thereby help give our transport solutions a real ‘energy mix’. “
The Delanchy Group is still deciding on the allocation of this new, 100% electric carrier, which will go to Paris or Lyon to make journeys of around 110 kilometres.Among the 1,000 vehicles within the Group, this first Renault Trucks D Z.E. joins a fleet of 340 carriers used for distribution operations.
