Renault will supply the Carlsberg Group with 20 electric trucks for the European market.
Renault Trucks has announced the signing of a contract with the Carlsberg Group to deliver 20 D Wide Z.E. These 100% electric 26-tonne trucks, which will be delivered in 2020, will be operated by the Feldschlösschen brewery, the Group’s Swiss subsidiary.
“It is the first order of this scale in Europe,” said Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks. “It proves to our customers that the transport sector is undergoing a major transformation and reflects an industrial and commercial reality: our Renault Trucks electric trucks are rolling off the assembly line and will be on the roads of Europe in a few weeks’ time.”
With a range of 200 km, these trucks will make daily delivery rounds of between 100 and 200 km to supply clients from the brewer’s 15 logistical sites in Switzerland.
