Big vans don’t usually make for convincing electric vehicles, but slowly and surely there are more options for buyers to choose from – and the latest to join the fray is the Renault Master E-Tech.
The new Master E-Tech – which shares many electrical components with the smaller Renault Kangoo E-Tech – follows on from the older Renault Master ZE. It uses the same electric motor as that model, giving it 76bhp and 166lb ft of torque, but now has a bigger battery (52kWh), for an official range of 124 miles.
There are now three gross vehicle weights available, to make use of the increased allowance for electric vans when driven on a car licence. That means payloads of up to 1.2 tonnes and load volumes of up to 15m3.
Over the next few pages of this review, we'll tell you everything you need to know about the Renault Master E-Tech – from what the performance is like to how it compares for running costs with the best rivals.
