The Renault Master van has been a popular work companion for many over the 40-plus years since the model’s introduction. Renault has sold over three million Master vans since 1980, in more than 50 countries. Now in it’s fourth-generation, the latest version is set to extend this success.
The all-new Renault Master’s boasts a newly designed interior and exterior aimed at adding a clearly defined identity, attractive looks and a modern feel to the popular van. On the inside, Renault have compared the new Master to an ‘office on wheels’, with the back of the middle seat able to fold down into a desk, the base housing a slot to store a laptop, and USB-C ports to power devices, every detail is intended for intensive everyday use.
The exterior conveys dependability, durability and safety. Its distinctive front end includes Renault’s new logo and the extra-large full-LED headlamps in the signature C-shaped array around the grille.
The Master is available with a choice of all-electric and efficient diesel drivetrains, with the multi-energy platform also adaptable for a future hydrogen powertrain.
The fully-electric All-new Renault Master is powered by a 105kW motor, delivering 300Nm of torque. It benefits from a 87 kWh battery that provides a WLTP range of more than 410km. As a result, the All-new Renault Master boasts record-high payload capacity (1,625kg in a van requiring a B-category driving licence), range and towing capability (2.5 tonnes). Its consumption remains reasonable, at a WLTP standardised 21 kWh/100km with the large 87 kWh battery, thanks to the battery heat management system. A 130kW DC fast charge adds 229km of range in just 30 minutes. A 22kW AC workplace charger tops up the battery from 10% to 100% in just under four hours.
The All-new Renault Master is also designed to accommodate a hydrogen engine and fuel cell in future.
Four diesel Blue dCi powertrains, delivering 105, 130, 150 or 170hp, are available with the All-new Master. They consume substantially less fuel (1.5 litres less per 100km on average) and emit less CO2 (39 grams less per km, below 200g/km). Depending on the version, the engines can be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a highly efficient new 9-speed automatic gearbox.
The new Renault Master will be available to pre-order in Ireland from the beginning of 2024, with official ordering and customer deliveries in the later half of 2024.
