Renault Trucks showcases range of natural gas vehicles in Paris

Renault Trucks will be exhibiting its products at the International Transport and Logistics Week (SITL) on

the French Natural Gas for Vehicles Association (AFGNV) stand. The tradeshow is being held at the Paris

Nord Villepinte Exhibition Park from 22 to 25 March. On the stand, where a Renault Trucks D Wide CNG

will be on display, visitors will be able to discuss natural gas powered vehicles with specialists.

Among the alternative energy solutions offered by Renault Trucks, CNG is a mature, reliable and low

polluting energy: the engines do not require AdBlue®. They emit virtually no particulates, smoke or

smell. Furthermore, they have an operating range equal to that of a diesel vehicle in an urban

environment. Moreover, Renault NGV models can operate just as well on natural gas as on biomethane.

Vehicles running on CNG or biomethane can operate in areas for clean vehicles only and are perfectly

well adapted for use in urban and suburban environments for carrying out deliveries and for local

authority activities (street cleaning, refuse collection and urban distribution).

The Renault Trucks D Wide CNG is available in two configurations: 19 ton 4×2 rigid and 26 ton 6×2 rigid

with a Euro 6 NGT9 engine having a displacement of 9 L and a power rating of 320 hp. It is fitted with a

fully automatic Allison series 3200 gearbox, perfectly adapted for refuse collection tipper applications.

The vehicle’s servicing and maintenance are provided by the Renault Trucks network throughout
