Renault Master E-TECH: electric van gets new conversion options

The electric Renault Master E-TECH conversion range now includes Dropside, Luton Box and Tipper vans, alongside the existing Luton Low Loader, chassis and platform cabs

Renault has expanded the range of conversions available for its Master E-TECH large electric van. The line-up now includes Dropside, Luton Box Van and Tipper variants of the Master E-TECH, joining the existing Luton Low Loader chassis-cad and platform-cab models. The Master Chassis Cab E-TECH starts from £52,400 after the Government’s plug-in van grant, but excluding VAT.

The three new conversions are possible thanks to the recently introduced 3.5-tonne Master E-TECH Chassis Cab that underpins them, which has a maximum payload of 1,620kg. With the conversions added, the Dropside model has a maximum payload of 1,278kg, while the Tipper and Luton Box Van can carry up to 1,190 and 980kg respectively.

All use the same 33kWh battery as the standard Master E-TECH van, which is sufficient for a range of roughly 75 miles on a charge. Fully recharging the battery from flat will take around six hours from a regular 7kW wallbox charger. To make sure you get the most out of the battery, the range also gets regenerative braking and an Eco mode. The Master E-TECH and all conversion models are powered by an electric motor that produces 75bhp and 220Nm of torque.

There’s no maximum volume for the Tipper or Dropside versions of the Master E-TECH, but Renault has confirmed the Luton Box Van has a 20-cubic-metre volume, as opposed to the 19 cubic metres available in the Low Loader variant.

Business is the only trim level available, so all models get automatic headlights and wipers, hill-start assistance, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and electric front windows. All the Renault Master E-TECH conversions are covered by a three-year/100,000-mile warranty as standard; you also get a five-year/62,000-mile battery warranty.
