Renault Master E-TECH electric van: prices, specs and release date

Large electric van costs from just over £46,000 (excluding VAT) after government plug-in van grant is deducted

The Renault Master E-TECH electric van is priced from £46,400 excluding VAT, once the government's plug-in van grant is deducted.

The Master E-TECH uses the same electric running gear as the smaller Kangoo E-TECH It has been designed specifically for companies with multi-drop last-mile delivery routes in busy urban locations, offering access to low or zero-emissions zones without penalties or charges.

Claimed real-world driving range is 74 miles (with a half payload) and a full recharge of the batteries from empty takes six hours.

Renault Master E-TECH wheelbases, roof heights, specification and options

Three different wheelbase configurations (SWB, MWB and LWB) are available, as well as two roof heights (LR and MR). The Master E-TECH is based on the Business specification level of the regular diesel Master, so it gets electric windows and mirrors, DAB radio, Bluetooth, a CD player, USB, steel bulkhead, electronic stability control, hill-start assistance and trailer swing assistance as standard.

The Master E-TECH also gets a side charging socket, a pre-heating function and the 'Z.E. Voice' system. The latter emits a sound at low speeds so the van will be more noticeable to pedestrians. Options include a three-pin charging cable and a three-year renewal subscription to the 'My Z.E. Connect' service, which lets you view the van's remaining range on a smartphone or computer.

Through its Pro+ Business Centre dealer network, Renault can also offer converted vehicles based on the Master E-TECH, including a Luton body, refrigerated unit and parcel-delivery configuration.

Prices and release date

All versions of the Master E-TECH are eligible for the Government's full plug-in van grant of £8,000. That takes the pre-VAT price of the LM31 platform cab model to £45,700, while the LL31 platform cab costs £46,500 before VAT. The entry-level panel-van version (the SL31) comes in at £46,400, with the SM31 costing £47,000, the MM31 costing £48,000 and the range-topping LM 31 offered for £48,800. Order books are open now.
