Renault Trucks expands Trafic Red line-up

Renault Trucks has expanded its line-up of Trafic Red models and now offers dropside, chiller and camper van specifications.

The Trafic Red joined the Renault Trucks model range last year, alongside the existing Master Red. The vehicles, which are derived from existing Renault models, benefit from the aftersales support of the Renault Trucks network.

Grahame Neagus, head of LCV at Renault Trucks UK and Ireland, said: “For several years Renault Trucks has been focused on increasing its market share and penetration through innovation and a compelling tailored proposition that is set to continue with the launch of these three new Renault Trucks Trafic variants.

“Our customers appreciate the versatility, reliability, and performance of the Trafic range, as well as the ability to personalise the vehicle to the individual’s needs and activities and these new variants take this to the next level. With a wider range of specifications to choose from, we are confident that we can offer our customers the perfect LCV vehicle to suit their needs.”

The new Renault Trucks Trafic Red Edition Dropside is suitable for a variety of applications, including construction, municipal, parks, arborists, and rubbish clearance, especially in urban locations where space is tight and a manoeuvrable and compact vehicle is required. It is available as either a Caged Dropside body or in a standard Dropside body and features an L2 wheelbase, Single H1 cab, Euro 6 Step E 150PS engine and six-speed manual gearbox. With a typical payload of 850Kg with caged side or 950Kg without, the vehicle is based on the Renault Trucks Trafic Red Edition Platform Cab.

It has been converted by approved convertor, PD Stevens & Sons, in Market Drayton, and boasts a sloping alloy plank floor for easy evacuation of the load, cab high drop-down mesh sides in addition to the conventional alloy dropsides, full height rear mesh doors, underfloor tool storage with lockable doors either side as well as being fully Chapter 8 compliant including LED and Strobe lighting and chevrons.

The new Renault Trucks Trafic Red Edition Chiller is also based on the Platform Cab, this time converted by Gray and Adams. It is fitted with a refrigerated chiller box body and is also available as a freezer or dual compartment.

Suitable for food, plant or pharmaceutical products required to be transported in a chilled state, the new vehicle provides a larger space than a standard refrigerated van, together with a typical 865Kg to 1,000Kg payload, while still offering nearside access via a single door as well as well as twin doors to the rear.

The Chiller also features an L2 wheelbase, single H1 cab, moveable bulkhead for dual temperature, electric standby facility and Euro 6 Step E 150PS engine with six-speed manual gearbox.
