Because Renault Trucks believes diesel fuel is the primary energy for long-haul transport - and will remain so for many years to come - it is constantly striving to cut fuel consumption and slash emissions.

At the 27th Pollutec, which will be held from November 29 to December 2, 2016 at Lyon’s Eurexpo exhibition center, Renault Trucks will be spotlighting the performance of Euro 6 engines compared to the previous generations. The de-pollution system fitted to Euro 6 engines has cut nitrogen oxide emissions fivefold and particle emissions sixfold compared to the previous standard. Today, 99.9% of particles – even the very finest – are trapped by the pollution filter.

Renault Trucks will also be unveiling the mock-up of its new diesel laboratory vehicle designed for distribution: the Urban Lab 2. This truck is the result of a collaborative project – the Efficient Distribution Truck or EDIT - with six partners*. It offers an array of high-tech features in aerodynamics, engine hybridization and tire performance, as well as vehicle-to-infrastructure communication which makes it possible to drastically reduce the fuel consumption of delivery vehicles.

The Renault Trucks stand will also feature a D WIDE fitted with a new generation Euro 6 Step C-compliant 11-L engine and rear steering axle. This vehicle offers fantastic maneuverability, making it ideal for operating in an urban environment.

Renault Trucks is extending its CNG offer to take into account the greater demand for diverse sources of energy in built-up areas. Visitors to the Renault Trucks stand will also have a chance to check out the WIDE CNG with its horizontal exhaust system. This version enjoys the same chassis and body-mounting possibilities as its diesel counterpart since there is no vertical exhaust to integrate between cab and trailer.
