Renault Master 2024: leader sophistication

Renault Master 2024 dynamic van

La new generation of Renault Master It comes with the calling card of being nothing more and nothing less than a pioneer in aerodynamic matters. Difficult as it is a large commercial vehicle, you will think... But the truth is that yes, the engineers and designers have put it in the Saint-Cyr wind tunnel to reduce its Cx by 20% and make it the most efficient in its category.

This, in addition to the consumption (the electric Master remained below 20 kWh/100 km with 400 kg of ballast and the diesel, with the same load, did not reach 9 l/100 km), it is noticeable especially behind the wheel. After having tested both its van and dump truck variants, we can assure you that Sensitive aerodynamic noise in the interior is practically zero, something almost unthinkable in a model with such a front surface.

The front of the Renault Master 2024 impresses

Renault Master 2024 evolution

The design is another of its great strengths, and the entire assembly that makes up the grill, the full LED headlights, the front bumper and the hood has been developed taking inspiration from the front of the cabins of American trucks. In fact, up close it is impressive to see such a huge radiator grille on a van.

For the cargo van and the double cabin, which will surely be the most in demand, there will be two heights and three different lengths (one height and two lengths in the electric one) with up to 10 centimeters more loading area than before. Added to these are the chassis variants for trucks, dump trucks and countless conversions such as ambulance, mobile workshop, isothermal, etc. In any case, the cargo volume varies between 11 and 22 cubic meters to accommodate up to two tons of payload.

Renault Master: diesel, electric… and in the future hydrogen

The mechanical range will consist of a electric option with 105 kW of power and 40 or 87 kWh batteries that will provide a maximum of 460 km of autonomy, in the case of the most capable; as well as four diesel options manual and automatic with a two-liter engine and 105, 130, 150 or 170 HP that may even run on HVO biofuel. Months later a hydrogen Master will arrive.

This new fourth generation Master also launches a platform that allows you improve in essential aspects of safety, technology and sustainability. For example, to the possibility of offering the aforementioned multi-energy are added aspects such as the incorporation of a total of 20 ADAS, an electronic assisted braking system, V2G and V2L functions (that is, it allows the vehicle to be used both to charge other devices and to integrate into a two-way charging network) and full connectivity with the integration of Google Automotive services on the 10-inch central screen.

Easy to drive and surprisingly comfortable

Renault Master 2024 interior

As you can imagine, because it is common in the category, once we access the interior we find a multitude of storage spaces and glove compartments. Even the middle seat can be converted into a table to facilitate the tasks of those who have to write down details of their professional routine. When we start and get going, we quickly notice that the driving, as happens in light commercial vehicles, it looks more and more like that of a car.

Despite its purpose, and with the exception of the Master E-Tech which seemed too hard in the city, All versions behave very nobly and smoothly., especially the Master with tipper, undoubtedly the most comfortable of all with a noticeably softer front axle. Its configuration was completed with the 150 HP diesel engine and the six-speed manual transmission, which for driving comfort and performance seemed to me to be the ideal mechanism for those who do not have to be in the city most of the time - the electric one is unbeatable there... -

The marketing of this new Renault Master will begin early summer, although prices for Spain have not yet been specified.
