Warburtons rolls out four more electric Renault Trucks E-Tech D16s

Following the successful deployment of its first 16 tonne electric truck in Enfield, Warburtons, the UK’s largest bakery brand, has taken delivery of a further four Renault Trucks E-Tech D16s.  

This investment demonstrates Warburtons commitment to reduce its carbon impact by transitioning to a zero emission fleet. In addition to the E-Tech D16s, Warburtons has also purchased its first electric vans, two Renault Trucks E-Tech Master vans with Luton bodies. 

Supplied by Renault Trucks dealer JDS Trucks & Vans, the four E-Tech D16s join Warburtons secondary fleet and will deliver fresh bakery products direct to stores across the country. The vehicles will operate from four of Warburtons bakeries in Enfield, Glasgow (Bellshill), Bristol and Bolton. The E-Tech Masters will be located at Enfield and Bristol. 

All four of Warburtons’ latest electric trucks are E-Tech D16 4×2 rigids with box bodies by Fosters Commercials and Dhollandia tail lifts.  Powered by 265 kWh, 600 V E-Tech lithium-ion batteries, the Alternating Current synchronous motor with permanent-magnet technology delivers maximum power of 185 kW, continuous power of 130 kW and maximum torque of 425 Nm. The E-Tech reduction gearbox offers two forward speeds and one reverse. 

The E-Tech D16s are equipped with charge ports compatible with type 2 and CCS Combo 2, which allows mode 2, 3 or 4 charging from 22 kW to 150 kW. 

Aftersales support for the E-Techs will be provided by the local Renault Trucks dealer: Renault Trucks Scotland, Renault Trucks South West, JDS Blackburn and Norfolk Truck & Van Enfield, which was the servicing dealer for Warburtons’ first electric vehicle.
