RENAULT MASTER EURO 6: PRIORITISING COMFORT AND LOWER CONSUMPTION
The Renault Master is now available with a Euro-6 engine.
The Renault Master from Renault Trucks is now available with a Euro-6 engine. Available in 2.8 to 4.5 tonne versions and with engines of 110 to 170 hp, the Master offering maintains its diversity, perfectly satisfying demands in fields such as construction, passenger transport, parcels delivery and also controlled temperature transport with specific packs.
To comply with the latest Euro-6 regulations, the vehicle incorporates Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology which has been tried and perfected by Renault Trucks on its HGV ranges since 2009. The SCR system, combined with the injection of Adblue® into the exhaust gases, brings about a major reduction in polluting emissions. The 22-litre Adblue® tank on the Renault Master, which is located on the opposite side to the diesel inlet, now provides an operating range of up to 7,500 miles.
This new Master van offering - available from 2.8 to 4.5 tonnes and 110 to 170 hp - qualifies for Euro-6 registration in the Light Duty and Heavy Duty categories. This enables it to incorporate heavy bodywork, such as a cherry picker, for example. Renault Trucks can also supply approved dropside, Luton or tipper bodies via its ‘Ready for Business’ range, launched in 2015.
With the aim of improving driver comfort, the new Renault Master can be equipped with the Media Nav 2.0 system, which incorporates a 7” touch-screen navigation screen and an audio system featuring a DAB digital radio, USB and jack plug and a Bluetooth® connection for hands-free telephone and audio. The system’s mapping can be updated by connecting to a dedicated website. For added safety, it also offers the option of automatically switching headlight settings (from high beam to low beam when a vehicle is detected less than 600 metres away) as well as a camera and reversing sensor to ensure that manoeuvres are carried out under optimal safety conditions.
It is also equipped with bi-turbo technology, enabling low-pressure turbo and high-pressure turbo to be operated in turn, or simultaneously, to deliver greater torque at low engine speeds (380 Nm from 1500 to 3000 rpm). In addition, the Renault Master boasts the Driver Assist system, which informs drivers of the best moment to change gear.
Renault Trucks’ LCV Manager, Richard Chamberlain, says “We’re delighted to be able to offer the new Euro-6 Master van range through the Renault Truck dealer network to enhance our total Euro-6 solutions, which are now available from 2.8 tonnes right up to 44-tonnes. With our expertise in SCR technology, which has been tried and perfected by Renault Trucks on our HGV ranges since 2009, we are better placed to support both new and existing customers than ever before.”
