Renault’s latest addition to the Master family, Luton Van Platform Cab, joins a raft of current Master off-the-shelf conversions including minibuses and tippers.
The new model is built on a standard platform cab, rather than a chassis cab like most of its competitors, and as a result, it offers a ride height of just 550mm, around 330mm lower than that of a conventional chassis offering. With a long wheelbase (4078mm), low centre of gravity, and an aerodynamically-designed integrated front air deflector above the cab, Renault promises a smooth ride and above-average fuel economy.
For customers seeking an even lower load height, Renault’s air suspension can be specified for £1,500 excluding VAT, which drops the new version 350mm nearer to the ground.
To ensure the van’s rigidity, the new conversion’s structure consists of 1.5mm thick, high strength aluminium side walls, plus a bulkhead for added strength. The new Master Luton van also boasts several features designed to improve its ease-of-use and safety, including a load area work lamp, double rear doors with 270-degree opening, interior emergency exit release, five full length lashing rails on both sides, clear glass fibre roof panel and an anti-slip plywood floor.
