New Renault Trucks Euro 5 range: cleaner, higherperformance vehicles
The switch to Euro 5 is an opportunity for Renault Trucks to upgrade its product ranges dedicated to the Distribution, Construction and Long Distance businesses (over 6 tons). Also it is an opportunity to offer its customers solutions which are closer to their requirements in terms of fuel economy and power. Renault Trucks’ Euro 5 trucks have therefore succeeded a double whammy of being cleaner with enhanced performance. Distribution range With Midlum and Premium Distribution (GVW 7.5 to 26 tons), Renault Trucks is offering its customers a complementary product range which meets their main expectations linked to the distribution business (task-specific, profitable vehicles which work well in the urban environment by combining working comfort and safety). The Midlum is now available in 75 different configurations in rigid truck (from 7.5 to 18 tons) and a choice of engines ranging from 180 to 300hp (DXi5: 180 to 220hp and DXi7: 270 to 300hp). The optimisation of those engines has produced a high-performance product range in terms of power and torque. For example, the Euro 5 180hp DXi5 achieves a torque rating of 660Nm, which is close to the Euro 4 engine version with its 10 extra horsepower. On the gearbox side, so as to meet increasing demands for robotised gearboxes, Optitronic is now available on the Dxi5 and DXi7. This gearbox and its smooth ride is much appreciated by its users and offers fuel consumption gains of up to 7% compared to an equivalent vehicle equipped with a manual gearbox. i.e. €750 savings per year when the truck covers 60,000km. Lower fuel consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions with enhanced security with alldisc EBS (electronic breaking system) fitted as standard. All Renault Premium Distribution engines have been upgraded in terms of power and torque: 270hp, 310hp, 340hp (DXi7), 380hp, 430hp and 460hp (DXi11). The Premium Distribution Euro 5 offers a new generation of robotised gearboxes (Optitronic on DXi7 and Optidriver+ on DXi11) and a new manual ZF 16-gear gearbox. With Optidriver+, the Premium Distribution reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 3% compared to a vehicle with a manual gearbox. Construction range 3 years after its launch, the Kerax range now meets 95% of its customers’ business requirements. Renault Trucks intends to broaden this range by building new configurations and transport solutions in order to better satisfy its customers. By way of proof, it is offering the
