February 1, 2024

Renault Master

In the spring, the new Renault Master will come to our country. It comes with a choice of four diesel engines, with outputs of 130, 150 and 170 hp. For customers who prefer all-electric drive, there are two choices. You can choose a 40 kWh battery combined with a 130-hp electric motor, or an 87 kWh battery that works together with a 143-hp electric motor. With the large battery pack, Renault said you could travel 410 kilometers, but now it turns out that the large van makes it to 460 WLTP kilometers. A distance of 200 kilometers is achievable with the small battery. Earlier, Renault gave 180 kilometers for this purpose.

The new, electric Renault Master has a payload of 1,626 kg and a towing weight of 2.5 tons. Thanks to DC charging power of up to 130 kW, 229 kilometers of range can be recharged in 30 minutes at a fast charging station. Thanks to the 22 kW on-board charger, the battery can be charged from 10 to 100 percent in less than 4 hours at a 22 kW AC charging point.


The electrically powered versions of the new Renault Master will be available with Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) features. Power outlets in the cab and cargo area can be used to plug in adapters for power tools, computers and other devices. Also, customized features (such as a refrigeration system, automatic rear doors, additional heating or air conditioning, etc.) can be powered directly by the drive battery. This type of feature is also known as Vehicle-to-Load (V2L). But the new, electric Renault Master can also deliver energy from the battery back to the power grid via a bi-directional charger, for example to help stabilize the power grid during peak hours. This technology is called Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G).
