RENAULT TRUCKS LAUNCHES NEW TRUCKSIMULATOR APP
Renault Trucks is now making an entertaining, truck-oriented application available to the general public. TruckSimulator by Renault Trucks is a driving simulation game in which players use the vehicle in operational situations. For the first time, an application is available that simulates driving on a work site or an urban environment as well as on the open road, at the wheel of the Renault Trucks T, C, K and D. The application is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play.
Renault Trucks is offering the general public an opportunity to discover what it’s like to drive a truck at the wheel of the vehicles in its latest Euro 6 range. Players can choose between driving a long distance truck, a worksite vehicle, or one devoted to distribution in an urban environment.
“With the TruckSimulator app, Renault Trucks offers the general public a wide variety of driving situations which correspond to those drivers can come up against throughout their careers,” explains Franck Nallet, in charge of digital communication at Renault Trucks. “This application puts the Renault Trucks T, C, K and D into context and enables everyone to discover our Euro 6 range in an entertaining way.”
Players first choose the environment in which they want to drive, which will determine the type of assignments they will have to carry out. If they choose the long distance assignment, their objective will be to achieve the highest journey speed, while at the same time consuming as little fuel as possible, which is in line with hauliers’ priorities, since fuel is one of their main cost centres.
Players who opt for the heavy construction and construction assignments will be given the task of keeping their entire load on board at all times.
Finally, as far as distribution is concerned, the assignment will be to deliver parcels in their respective districts, while at the same time respecting the restrictions imposed on urban deliveries, particularly with regard to speed limits.
This driving simulator offers a number of options such as the possibility of personalising the vehicles by changing their colour, measuring players against others by using the ‘ranking’ function or by challenging friends on Facebook.
