First electric version of the Renault Trafic van revealed at IAA in Hannover

Renault Trafic Van E-Tech Electric

Electric vans are gradually learning to be a Thing, arent they? Only a few weeks hence we were cruising around in the brand new Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo, now Renault went and revealed a ‘leccy version of its Trafic van.

No visual cues here to provide away the powertrain, but perhaps thats the idea: a lot more than 2.2 million types of the Trafic have already been shifted since its launch in 1980, why meddle with the recipe?

A 52kWh battery affords 149 miles of range (WLTP certification pending), while theres a 90kW motor (thats 121bhp in more familiar terms) driving leading wheels.

Maximum payload will come in at 1.1 tonnes and the towing capacity is given as 750kg. The Trafic comes in two lengths – 5.08 or 5.48 metres, to be precise – with load volume which range from 5.8 to 8.9 cubic metres. Meanwhile the utmost load length could be extended to 4.15 metres due to the through load bulkhead feature on the bigger L2 model.

Inside theres today’s multimedia system, also to cap everything off it is possible to charge at around 22kW on an AC current (youll manage only 7kW on a single-phase connection in the home, mind) or 50kW on the DC chargers typically entirely on motorway service stations.

It joins the electric Master in Renaults line-up, which – while its been with us for a great number of years – now has stiff competition in the form of the Ford e-Transit.
