Electric refuse vehicle #2 arrives!


The second electric Renault Trucks 26t refuse collection vehicle (eRCV) has arrived and is now available for short term hire.

Both vehicles were supplied by RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) and feature D Wide E-Tech electric rear-steer chassis paired with Dennis Eagle OL21 bodies and Terberg Xtra bin lifts. The trucks are powered by 4x 66kW lithium batteries, which are in the wheelbase.

Easy charging is also featured with the vehicle being specified with a charging port compatible with both AC and DC charging. Its 4 modes allow charging from 22kW to 150kW. A full recharge takes less than two hours with a fast (DC) charge or overnight on a conventional industrial outlet and adapts to all situations.

Due to its zero tailpipe emissions, the Renault Trucks D Wide E-Tech is qualified to operate in Low Emission Zones (LEZ) and Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ).

Windows in the lower section of the nearside slam door aid driver vision and it is also an extremely quiet vehicle. These measures make the vehicles perfect for operation in urban areas with reduced noise pollution and considerations for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and other road users.

Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, CTS Hire commented, “We are delighted to receive our second Renault Trucks E-Tech eRCV. The first vehicle has proven popular with our customers. This additional vehicle will give even more of our customers the opportunity to incorporate an electric refuse truck into their day-to-day operations for as long as they wish, enabling them to carry out a more thorough evaluation of this new technology.”

Paul Pearson, Commercial Director, RHCV commented, “The second eRCV gives even more opportunity to showcase the advancement and reliability of the Renault Trucks E-Tech range.

“As our Nottingham depot is an official Renault Trucks EV service and repairing dealer, we can really become a leading supplier of electric vehicles”
