Renault Trucks and EO Charging partner on commercial EVs


Renault Trucks has partnered with EO Charging as it starts to ramp up commercial electric vehicles.

The automaker is targeting retail and SME sectors with its first electric Master ZE vehicles, which come as vans, minibuses or trucks, with Renault planning to also configure them as cherry-pickers, construction welfare vehicles and refrigerated vehicles.

A free EO smart charger (22kW) will be bundled with the first 50 vans, which enables fleets to manage site load and charge vans when it is cheapest and/or cleanest to do so.

EO said its ‘Genius’ charger is used by commercial fleets including Sainsbury’s Online, Ocado and Gnewt Cargo.
