RENAULT TRUCKS LAUNCHES NEW RIGHT HAND DRIVE RANGE T HIGH FOR THE UK LONG-HAUL MARKET
In response to the changing UK and Irish markets, and a clear demand from customers, Renault Trucks is delighted to announce the introduction of a newly-engineered right hand drive Range T High, available from early 2018.
The flagship right hand drive Range T High with flat floor cab takes pride of place in the robust, efficient Renault Trucks line-up, driving new opportunities for the brand with long-haul operators and owner drivers.
“For UK and Irish customers, while the standard Range T continues to deliver the best available total cost of ownership, we have listened and we recognise that more operators are looking for a more spacious and luxurious sleeper cab,” comments Nigel Butler Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK. “Since launch in 2013, the left hand drive Range T High has been universally acclaimed in Europe and by operators and press alike here in the UK. Our flagship flat floor right hand drive models offer spacious, comfortable and well-appointed working and living areas that will appeal to both drivers and operators who specify vehicles that are a home-from home, and those who prioritise image.”
Superior levels of performance and comfort have come together in Range T High and are reflected in the specification levels available of the three core variants. ‘International’, featuring fabric seats with rotating passenger seat, flat floor, standard bunk and steel wheels, is available in 440hp and 480hp in 6x2 configuration only. ‘Driver’ comes with full leather seats with rotating passenger seat, performance lower and ultimate upper bunk, deep fridge, compact dashboard, Alcoa alloy wheels, aluminium suzie support and additional catwalk, and is available in 440hp, 480hp and 520hp. The top of the range ‘Driver Lux’ - available in 480hp and 520hp - is to luxury specification and additionally includes backrest, lockers, luxury curtains, laminated side windows and aluminium air tanks.
Nigel Butler continues: “Attracting and retaining good drivers is a real priority for operators facing the critical shortage of trained professionals in the industry. The generous working, living and sleeping environment of the right hand drive Range T High will help enhance driver satisfaction and productivity as the flat floor delivers the comfort levels needed for international or long distance transport.”
Alongside the proud and professional image that the right hand drive Range T High projects on the road, Renault Trucks’ unwavering commitment to customer efficiency always comes first, as he explains: “In the UK, the Renault Trucks brand is growing, and our highly rated Euro-6 product range is considered a real alternative for customers. Efficiency and fuel economy remain strongpoints of the Range T High’s latest generation Step C 13-litre engine, while enhanced residual values support the Range T’s excellent total cost of ownership performance, ensuring the right hand drive flat floor cab makes commercial sense for long-haul operators.”
To support the launch of the right hand drive Range T High, Renault Trucks UK is running a series of digital and social promotions which direct viewers to the Range T High website, www.range-t-high.co.uk where visitors can register interest in the new vehicle.
