French logistics Company Urby orders 20 electric trucks from Renault

Logistics service provider Urby has ordered 20 Renault Trucks D Z.E. electric trucks. Urby is a subsidiary of French postal operator La Poste and Banque des Territoires. The electric trucks are designed for urban distribution and are scheduled to enter service in around 15 French cities starting 2022.

According to Urby, the order results from growing customer demand for sustainable transport solutions and the tightening of urban regulations – particularly with the introduction of low emission zones.

The 20 ordered examples will drive up in the 4×2 configuration with a gross vehicle weight of 16 tonnes and a box body for up to 18 pallets. The range is given as 250 kilometers.

The decisive factors for the choice were the proven technology, the range of the vehicles and the maintenance offered by Renault Trucks in a specialised network, says Urby.

The 20 electric trucks will be deployed in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Lille and Nantes, among other cities, from next year.

“We believe that the future of the delivery business lies in green solutions. Our objective is to reinvent, and even revitalise, the delivery of goods from an environmental point of view. Thanks to its high payload capacity, the all-electric Renault Trucks D Z.E. is a key player in the innovative goods transport market,” stated Frédéric Delaval, Managing Director of Urby.

Renault Trucks aims to equip 10% of its fleet with electric vehicles by 2025 and 35% by 2030. By 2040, the entire vehicle range should then be 100% free of fossil fuels.
