Despite its thirteen-year career, the Renault Master looks like a youngster in a segment of very large vans with disproportionately long life cycles, as can be seen from the Peugeot Boxer and Citroën Jumper born in 2006. Especially since the mover of the Losange underwent a major facelift in 2019, which allows it to still benefit from a modern bow and a rewarding cabin, richly equipped with the latest equipment.
However, it seems that its replacement by a brand new generation is at a very advanced stage, our scoop hunters having flushed out one of its prototypes in recent days. We discover in these exclusive shots a vehicle with its final bodywork, and not a mule. This new Master, simply covered with psychedelic camouflage to hide its lines, nevertheless reveals very fine optics echoing the design of the most recent productions of the Losange, such as the electric Mégane.
A platform developed around electrification
Moreover, this new Master will put the package on this type of virtuous propulsion, although the current generation already offers a 100% electric variant. But the newcomer having developed a multi-energy platform at the start of its genesis, it will further optimize the installation of its batteries and its electric motors in order to guarantee honorable levels of autonomy. To date, a Master E-Tech hardly promises to rally more than 120 km. And again, depending on the type of driving and the level of charge. Rest assured that the new Renault Master does not intend to do without diesel engines. But it will also wish to strengthen its commitment to green energies by renewing an offer running on hydrogen.
