Electric truck partnership

In Europe, Renault Trucks, part of the Volvo group, has set up a joint venture with electric vehicle manufacturer EDF to create a light duty electric truck. The new collaboration plans to develop a truck that will be named the Renault Maxity Electric, based on the current Renault light duty truck range on sale in Europe.

The plan is to create a truck with a payload of 2 tonnes and a maximum top speed of 90 km/h.
