Renault Catering Van: one of 17 conversions on show from Renault at the CV Show

IF you want to see the breadth of conversions available from Renault, then ship up to the CV Show (14-16 April).

There are 17 different Renault van conversions on show, from the electric Twizy first responder ambulance to the Master based catering vehicle.

“We want to show the diversity of products on offer from Renault,” explained Steve Wilson, LCV product manager. “We have 30 renault approved converters that are all backed by the assurance of quality through our four-year/100,000 mile warranty.”

The 30 conversion specialists compliment the factory conversions already available.

These are located throughout the country and have dedicated business sales and aftersales teams with extended working hours to meet the demands of business customers.

4 Master Panel Van FWD MM35 dCi 125 Business+ Ready4Work

Another outstanding example of the versatility of the Master range comes in the form of a Panel Van fitted with the Ready4Work lightweight racking system from Bristor, of Hixham in Staffordshire, and fitted at Renault UK’s Import Centre. The vehicle arrives at the dealership, as the name suggests, ready to be put to work immediately.

The racking system makes it ideal for plumbers, joiners and electricians who need to store tools neatly, safely and securely to minimise down time when working. There are two shelving systems available – both similar in overall design, but one providing drawers to contain specialised tools and service equipment. Both have a non-slip plywood-based phenolic floor which fits precisely into the vehicle without the need for drilling.

The display model is based on the medium-wheelbase (3,682 mm) Panel Van, powered by the dCi 125 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine. Standard features include air conditioning, rear parking sensors, a hands-free key, a wide-view mirror, one-touch electric windows and a pivoting seat-back table with dual-split under-seat storage compartment. The racking system costs between £1,250 and £1,570 fitted plus VAT.
