Award Win for the Renault Master 100% Electric Van

The all-electric Renault Master Z.E. has been named the ‘Green Van of the Year’ in the inaugural Great British Fleet Awards, only weeks after its official UK launch. The Renault Master Z.E. triumphed in the new awards, which are hosted by the Fleet World publishing group and celebrate the best of corporate mobility in the UK, after impressing the judges with its load carrying ability and driving experience. The award recognises the 100 per cent electric Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles LCV to be the most usable and environmentally-compatible van available. Van Fleet World Editor Dan Gilkes said: “Last year we drove more new electric and hybrid vans and trucks than diesel-powered models, which is a first for the commercial vehicle market. Of course, Renault is no stranger to the electric van market, with Kangoo Z.E. already on its second generation and currently one of the most popular e-LCVs in the country. “With Master Z.E. the company has done its own thing, opting for a 3.1-tonne van rather than relying on a rise in permitted weight to make the van a viable proposition. And when driving the van, you would hardly know that you are behind the wheel of an electric vehicle, making it easy for fleets to adopt.” Master Z.E. is available in a choice of three wheelbase configurations – SWB, MWB and LWB – with a choice of two roof heights, LR & MR. All are based on the well-equipped Business specification that is available across the award-winning Renault Master range. Focused on providing drivers with high levels of comfort, convenience, connectivity and safety, standard features of the Business trim level include electric front windows and mirrors, DAB radio, Bluetooth, CD player, USB, full steel bulkhead, ESC, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Swing Assist. Specific equipment that is unique to the New Master Z.E. includes a side Z.E. charging socket, pre-heating function, and Z.E. voice – a specific sound that the vehicle makes at low speeds in order to be more noticeable to pedestrians. Exclusive New Master Z.E. options include a charging cable suitable for a domestic three-pin plug and a three-year renewal subscription to My Z.E Connect, which when combined with the R-Link media system, lets you view the vehicle’s range on a smartphone or computer connected to the internet. Together with the New Renault Master Z.E., the range of electrified Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles encompasses the Kangoo Z.E. 33 – available in Panel Van, Maxi, Maxi Crew Van and Maxi Crew Van Cab bodystyles – and the Twizy Cargo quadricycle, which replaces the passenger seat with a 180-litre, 75kg load area. The Renault Master Z.E. is priced from £45,700, excluding VAT, after the Plug-in Van Grant.

The Renault Zoe is officially the Best Electric Car under 30,000 pounds

6th Consecutive Win for the Renault Zoe at the What Car? Awards for 'Best Electric Car for less than £30,000. The What Car? Awards have been presented for the past 41 years and are recognised as being among the most prestigious in the industry. The award adds to the ZOE’s growing list of industry accolades. Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? magazine, said: “Our 2017 Electric Car of the Year remains a compelling proposition two years on, which is some achievement given the pace at which things are moving in this class. Unlike other sub-£30k pure electric options, you don’t have to put up with a feeble range. In fact, in our Real Range tests, the ZOE outperformed many much pricier options.” Vincent Tourette, Managing Director of Renault UK, said: “Electric cars are becoming more popular every month and the Renault ZOE has been at the forefront of the market since it was launched in the UK six years ago. ZOE is available with a choice of trims and motors, giving our customers the opportunity to choose the ZOE that best fits their lifestyle. That’s a key reason why the ZOE has been presented with a strong list of awards and it’s gratifying to see the model recognised by What Car? for a sixth successive year.” Renault’s ZOE has proven popular with customers with 1993 sold in the UK last year, an increase of 1.25 per cent over 2017. The car continues to be available to purchase in two ways. First, under a battery hire scheme, where ZOE pricing starts at £18,420 (on the road) after the Government Plug-in Car Grant, with battery leasing from £59 per month. And second, under the ‘full purchase’ option, which allows the customer to buy the car and the battery from £25,020 (OTR). Whichever purchase option is chosen, the Renault ZOE is one of the most affordable electric cars on sale following Renault’s mantra of providing sustainable mobility for all.  In addition, Renault offers retail customers that purchase a ZOE a free 7kW wall box charger fully-installed in their home to ensure the best possible electric experience. Two versions of the ZOE supermini are available and both have a real-world range of 186 miles (WLTP¹). With the R110 motor the ZOE has faster mid-range acceleration and 16hp more power than the R90 version it replaced. The second option is the Q90 motor, which allows faster charging. The ZOE Q90 Quick Charge can be charged from zero to 80 per cent in 65 minutes with a 43kW charger that can typically be found at most motorway service stations. The customer can also choose between two trim levels: ZOE Dynamique Nav and ZOE Signature Nav. Included with the ZOE Dynamique Nav is 16-inch ‘black shadow’ alloy wheels, a hands-free keycard, automatic headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors and seven-inch colour touchscreen for the R-LINK 2 infotainment system with navigation. Renault’s R-Link infotainment system utilises Android Auto™ to link the driver or passenger’s smartphone to the ZOE and mirrors the phone display onto the vehicle’s touchscreen to enable easy use of the smartphone’s functionality in the car. ZOE Signature Nav adds a BOSE® 3D sound system, heated front seats, a rear reversing camera and bronze coloured interior detailing. It also features 16-inch ‘grey shadow’ alloy wheels and unique ‘Signature’ upholstery. Renault has a strong line-up of 100 per cent electric vehicles that are in Renault dealerships nationwide. The ZOE is Renault’s popular electric supermini and is joined by the Twizy quadricycle, the Kangoo Z.E. 33 Van and the New Master Z.E. Van.

The New Renault Sport Megane R.S. 300 Trophy

Renault Sport’s New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy goes on sale today with deliveries starting from February 2019. An increase in power to 300hp makes the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy the most powerful Renault Sport production car ever. The new model features a variety of advanced technology that enhances its performance and brings a new look to the top end of the Mégane R.S. range. Pricing for the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy starts from £31,810 OTR for the six-speed manual gearbox model. Equipped with the six-speed automatic EDC (efficient dual-clutch) gearbox, the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is £33,510 OTR. New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy celebrates 15 years of the Renault Mégane R.S. line and builds on the advanced technology in the Mégane R.S. 280, which was launched in the UK in May. This includes the clever 4CONTROL four-wheel steering system, which brings high speed stability as well as enhanced cornering agility, and the hydraulic bump stop shock absorbers that increase tyre contact with the road surface. The technology is developed further in the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy with the power output of the new 1.8-litre engine increased to 300hp and torque increased to 420Nm. Pioneering technologies can be found in the turbocharger and exhaust system. Sharp handling is guaranteed with the Cup chassis, which is an option on the standard Mégane R.S., and includes a stiffer suspension set-up and a Torsen® mechanical limited slip differential. Braking performance is upgraded with bi-material front brake discs. On the outside, the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is clearly differentiated from the Mégane R.S. thanks to its lightweight 19-inch ‘Jerez’ alloy wheels and the Trophy stripes on the F1-inspired front spoiler. Powertrain: harnessing Renault Sport technology to boost performance First seen in the Mégane R.S., the 1.8-litre direct injection turbo engine, derived from synergies in the Renault-Nissan Alliance, comes with an upgrade that enables it to pass the symbolic 300hp (220kW) mark for the first time in the R.S. range. Torque has also been increased, reaching 420Nm (+20Nm) with the EDC gearbox and 400Nm with the manual version. The increased power delivers better acceleration, including at high revs, whilst the torque – one of the best in class – contributes to driving pleasure and comfort behind the wheel. These improved performances comply with the new emission control standard, Euro6d-Temp, which came into force on 1 September 2018. In order to offset the substantial increase in exhaust back pressure, related to the addition of a particulate filter, Renault Sport engineers concentrated in particular on the efficiency of the turbocharger by deploying a technology taken directly from Formula 1. The turbine – which rotates at close to 200,000rpm – is now fitted on a ceramic ball bearing system. Lighter, harder and smoother than steel, ceramic reduces friction by a third compared with a traditional ball bearing system (oil film). This in turn ensures that the turbo is able to spool quicker, aiding acceleration and responsiveness. In addition to the turbo, the new exhaust system is the second area in which engine performance has been improved on New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy. The rear silencer has been fitted with a mechanical valve that enables engine noise to be adjusted. Once again, this is a first in the R.S. range. The performance can be adjusted by pressing the ‘Multi-Sense’ button, which gives the driver the option of five different performance modes ranging from Comfort and Normal to Sport and Race, with a ‘Perso’ personalised set-up. The position of the valve, automatically controlled according to the Multi-Sense mode selected, provides two tones: When the valve is shut, the exhaust gases are routed along a path specifically designed to filter out the low frequencies that cause throbbing noises and process the medium frequencies. The sound produced has a sporty feel but is easy on the ears for everyday use When the valve is open, the reduced flow resistance enables the gases to be routed along a more direct path. The engine's full potential can then be expressed, in terms of both performance and noise More specifically, when the Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is in Comfort mode the valve opens during kick-down. In Neutral the valve opens at 60 per cent throttle. And in Sport and Race the valve opens at 35 per cent throttle. Like Mégane R.S., the Trophy version is available with two types of six-speed gearbox: manual or EDC with steering wheel-mounted gearshift paddles. In the Mégane R.S. 280 torque is 390Nm in both manual and automatic EDC, whereas in the Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy this is increased to 400Nm (manual) and with the EDC automatic gearbox maximum torque is now 420Nm thanks to the specific mapping used. The EDC gearbox also has revised shift patterns compared to that of the Mégane R.S. 280 EDC. Chassis: the best of Renault Sport Even more suited to sports driving, New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is equipped as standard with the Cup chassis. Compared with the Sport chassis, it features: A Torsen® mechanical limited slip differential, the new calibration of which enables more precise entry to corners and improved traction when exiting corners 25 per cent firmer shock absorbers, 30 per cent tighter springs and 10 per cent stiffer anti-roll bars As standard, New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is fitted with bi-material 355mm front brake discs. Whilst reducing unsprung mass by 1.8kg per wheel, these discs deliver greater heat dissipation during intensive use, making them more resilient for track outings and vastly reducing the possibility of brake fade. A distinctive feature of the Cup chassis, the Brembo® callipers are painted red. Instantly recognisable thanks to its exclusive 19-inch ‘Jerez’ alloy wheels, New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy comes fitted with 245/35 Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres, which are renowned for offering a high level of grip. Available in 2019, the lighter 19-inch ‘Fuji’ Light alloy wheels – reducing weight by 2kg per wheel (8kg total) – are fitted with Bridgestone Potenza S007 tyres. These tyres, a specific version of which has been developed for Renault Sport, provide New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy with even more direct steering, increased cornering grip and greater durability for sports driving. This is a first for Renault Sport, and follows a practice that is common in the premium sector. New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy also comes with all the new features introduced on Mégane R.S., starting with the 4CONTROL technology. This four-wheel steering system delivers outstanding agility through tight turns and impressive cornering stability at higher speeds. At low speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels, the more direct steering delivering incisive handling and a ‘playful’ side that is unprecedented on a front-wheel drive car. At high speeds, the front and rear wheels turn in the same direction, meaning the rear wheels are perfectly aligned and the car enjoys increased stability. Design: R.S. spirit right down to the last detail Featuring an expressive and even sportier design, New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is available in the iconic Liquid Yellow. This body colour, with its vibrant finish and unique reflective effects, highlights the sculpted yet elegant profile of the car. The full range of Mégane R.S. body colours is also available. Designed to deliver performance, boosted by many parts derived from the world of motor racing, New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy is naturally expressive. Enthusiasts will instantly recognise New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy through its distinguishing traits: The Trophy decal added to the F1-style front bumper blade The specific 19-inch ‘Jerez’ alloy wheels, the design of which was inspired by the Renault Sport R.S.01 concept car, featuring a diamond-cut finish with red border. The name of these wheels was chosen in honour of the circuit at which R.S.01 made its first public outing New Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy may be fitted with optional new Recaro seats, redesigned from those fitted on Mégane III R.S. The structure of the original seat base has been revised to offer drivers an even sportier feel, whilst maintaining a high level of safety. Combined with the increase in travel on the height setting, this design offers drivers a seating position that is up to 20mm lower and therefore an even more thrilling, sporty driving experience. Meanwhile, the hard shell backrest and integrated headrest have been enhanced to adapt the driving position more precisely, particularly thanks to dial-controlled continuous adjustment of the recline angle. The optional Recaro seats are covered with Alcantara® upholstery. Highly resistant to wear and tear, largely unaffected by temperature variations and offering a high level of support whilst being twice as light as leather, this product possesses unique properties that are perfectly-suited to the needs of performance car enthusiasts. The seats weigh 23.5kg, which is 11.3 per cent less than those in the Mégane III R.S. Trophy. Driver Assistance: user-friendly technology R.S. Monitor is a telemetry and data acquisition system that enhances the driver experience in the Mégane R.S. and the New Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy. Accessible within ‘My Apps’ in the infotainment system, R.S. Monitor gathers and summarises information from forty or so sensors spread around the car. It is therefore possible to display a wide range of vehicle settings in real time on the R-LINK 2 touchscreen tablet: acceleration, braking, steering wheel angle, operation of the 4CONTROL system, temperatures and pressures, and more. Taking this a step further, R.S. Monitor Expert lets the driver film their progress behind the wheel and then overlay telemetry data, in order to obtain superb augmented reality videos. Available from 2019, these videos enhance the Mégane R.S. and New Mégane R.S. Trophy driver experience and can be instantly shared on social media using applications available for iOS and Android smartphones. The multi-reflector LED lighting system R.S. Vision comes as standard on Mégane R.S. models. These chequered flag design lights are integrated in the front bumper, either side of the F1-style blade. Unique in this market segment, R.S. Vision meets the need for powerful, efficient lighting, in line with the other features offered by Mégane R.S. Equipped with nine LEDs per block, this system combines four high performance lighting functions: side lights, cornering lights, fog lights and long-range high beam lights. In addition to the features listed above the Mégane R.S. 280 and the R.S. 300 Trophy include rear parking sensors, a seven-inch touchscreen with European mapping, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a handsfree keycard with automatic locking and welcome function, heated electric door mirrors, Hill Start Assist, ESC and ABS. Renault Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy: repeated excellence The first Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy appeared in 2005, just nine months after the first Mégane II R.S. went on sale. The modifications were focused on the chassis, called Sport2. Lighter wheels, stiffer springs, specific shock absorber stops and ESP that could be switched off all improved the car’s performance. After the production version went on sale in 2009, a 265 Trophy version of Mégane III R.S. was introduced in 2011. Based on the Cup chassis, it was fitted with an upgraded engine, with the power output increased from 250 to 265hp. Its performance made it the quickest front-wheel drive production model on the market, as proven by the lap record of 8:07.97 set by Laurent Hurgon on the Nordschleife at the Nürburgring. It was also a commercial success, with sales ending up twice the level that had been forecast. The final iteration based on Mégane III went even further in the quest for performance. As its name suggests, the 275 Trophy boasted an upgraded engine, with additional power. This Trophy also featured an Akrapovi? titanium exhaust system, reduced weight and Öhlins shock absorbers as an option.

More Awards for the Renault Zoe...

Renault’s all-electric ZOE has won the Supermini Award in the Next Green Car Awards 2018, and the Carwow Car of the Year Eco Award. Next Green Car Next Green Car stated: "Improved performance without compromising efficiency is an impressive feat from Renault with its updated electric best-seller. The ZOE R110 is a great compact EV, and provides one of the most affordable routes to EV ownership." carwow Commenting on the Renault ZOE, carwow presenter Mat Watson said: “The carwow Eco Award goes to a pure electric car – the Renault ZOE which is affordable, gives decent range and is now nippier thanks to a new uprated motor. And if you charge it from renewable sources it’s truly zero emission." The Renault Zoe The ZOE is available with an easy choice of two motors and two trims. In March this year the new R110 motor went on sale, giving more power but with the same range as the electric motor it replaced. The R110 motor is two seconds faster when accelerating from 50mph to 75mph compared to the previous motor, with a real-world range of 186 miles. ZOE is also available with the Q90 motor, which includes a rapid charge function. With a 43kW connection a ZOE equipped with the Q90 motor will charge from zero to 80 per cent in one hour. While the R110 motor is well suited to driving around town, the Q90, with its rapid charging functionality, is perhaps better suited to driving longer distances. Both motors are available on the Dynamique Nav and the Signature Nav trims. ZOE Dynamique Nav has, in addition to its comprehensive list of standard equipment, rear parking sensors, cruise control and Renault’s 7-inch R-Link infotainment system. Renault’s R-Link infotainment system utilises Android Auto to link the driver or passenger’s smartphone to the ZOE and mirrors the phone display onto the vehicle’s seven-inch colour touchscreen to enable easy use of the smartphone’s functionality in the car. Signature Nav offers premium leather upholstery, a BOSE® audio system, heated front seats, electrically folding door mirrors and a rear parking camera. ZOE continues to be available to purchase in two ways. First, under a battery hire scheme, where ZOE pricing starts at £18,420 (OTR) after the Government Plug-in Car Grant, with battery leasing from £59 per month. In addition, Renault offers retail customers who purchase a ZOE, a free 7kW wall box charger fully-installed at their home to ensure the best possible electric experience.
