Renault Master E-Tech Review

Lease

Price from: £50,915 (excluding grant)

The revamped all-electric Master E-Tech should be a leader in its class, but a small battery means lower range than most rivals. While the Renault Master has made its name as an affordable, high quality, commercially viable van over the last few years, it seems to have lost its way a little.

“I’m a little underwhelmed by this to be honest. In a market where bigger batteries and rapid charging are all must-haves for business users, it seems strange that Renault is lumbering the Master with such a lowly specification. Sub 100 mile real world range won’t be enough for most. ”

Nicki Says

“I’m not sure what Renault is doing with this. A new Ford E-Transit comes with a much bigger battery, 115kW rapid charging and the option to use the main battery as a power source. The Master has none of these and I really think it will struggle to compete with the  large vans already out there. ”
