Renault Master Z.E. Electric Luton Review
The Renault Master Z.E. Luton at a glance
The well-known manufacturer Renault has given its Master ZE line-up a refresh with the addition of the impressive Renault Master Z.E. Luton.
With a contemporary electric motor and battery pack, this Luton van is an eco-friendly solution for carrying large items and deliveries for your business.
The Renault Master Z.E range also includes a chassis cab in addition to the previous panel van and platform cab variants. As a result, Renault claims the Master ZE ‘offers the widest variety’ of any large electric van range so you are sure to find one that meets your needs.
While like many electric vans, the Renault Master Z.E Luton is expensive to buy outright, the combination of the low running costs and the option of buying on finance makes this a much more cost-effective solution.
If you are interested to find out more about what the Renault Master Z.E Luton has to offer, keep on reading for our thoughts on the engines and specs, interior and pros and cons of this eco-friendly van.
Engines and Spec
The engine of the Renault Master Z.E Luton is fully electric, meaning that you are guaranteed a smooth and quiet ride with low running costs and minimal damage to the environment.
The Master Z.E. can be fully charged in six hours, which Renault claims is appropriate to the requirements of its target fleet customers.
Aside from the environmental benefits and the tariff-free access to congestion charging zones, the Renault Master Z.E Luton is a far more relaxing van to manoeuvre through cities than its diesel equivalents, which is largely down to the single-speed transmission common to plug-in vehicles.
The Renault Master Z.E Luton has a driving range of 126 miles and is equipped with an energy-efficient R75 electric motor for combatting those rising fuel costs.
The result of Renault’s recent upgrades has meant that the Master Z.E range’s payload has increased across all models, however, the figures don’t quite match up to those of the classic diesel Renault Master.
Inside the Renault Master Z.E Luton van, the cabin is spacious and comfortable. Aside from a much more smooth and stable ride, the interior of the Renault Master Z.E Luton remains much the same as the diesel Master – although the Z.E does receive some bespoke features, which make it easy to keep track of how many miles you have left before the batteries run out.
Not only this, but the Renault Master Z.E boasts a range of tech features including automatic headlights and wipers, a reasonably sized multimedia touchscreen with Media Nav Evolution and smartphone integration, as well as a permanent rear view camera and functional rear parking sensors for optimised safety.
The Master Z.E. also comes with Renault’s fleet management telematics package, Easy Connect for Fleet. It provides real-time information on mileage, range, location, fuel consumption, tyre pressure, technical alerts and miles to the next service so you never have to worry about finding a station again.
Renault claimed it would enable fleets to cut running costs, save fuel, reduce emissions, plan servicing schedules and improve driver behaviour.
