The company has established an organization dedicated to electric mobility in support of these developments. The company has committed to electrifying its fleet gradually to become carbon-neutral in the next 30 years. Trucks have a life expectancy of at least ten year so all trucks made by 2040 must operate without the use fossil fuels. This major shift towards carbon-free transportation will require the use of both battery-electric and fuel cell electric power. Renault Trucks started series production at Blainville-sur-Orne in March 2020 for its second-generation electric vehicle. Renault Trucks offers a complete all-electric range, ranging from 3.1 to 26 tons. The Renault Trucks D Z.E. and D Wide Z.E. are the three main models.

A fully-electric offering for urban construction will also become available by this date. Renault Trucks will offer an electric truck range powered by hydrogen fuel cells in the second half decade. This is primarily for long-haul heavy and demanding operations.
Bruno Blin (President of Renault Trucks) stated that electric mobility is the foundation of our strategy. He also said that he aims to be a leader in this field. “We aim to have 35% of our sales be electric by 2030. All our vehicle ranges will be completely fossil-free by 2040. Renault Trucks has dedicated units in Research and Development, Sales and After-Sales to help achieve these goals. Renault Trucks is a strategic partner in R&D and will use the synergies of the Volvo Group to address the major technological challenges that this revolution presents. Renault Trucks will be able to benefit from the Volvo Group’s new unit for medium-tonnage vehicles. This segment is crucial for the gradual introduction of electric mobility for trucks. Renault Trucks will also benefit from the partnerships formed by Volvo Energy, the Volvo Group’s new entity dedicated both to the supply, recycling, and second life of batteries as well as charging solutions. The strategic alliance between the Volvo Group (Samsung SDI) will help it develop battery packs for heavy-duty vehicle applications.
