Renault cuts body mounting time

Vehicles in Renault’s new truck range can bring body mounting time down by as much as 20 per cent to speed up vehicle deliveries, according to the French manufacturer.

The savings are due to the introduction of new tools for bodybuilders, a highly modular approach to chassis design and provisions made for numerous different configurations.

Renault said its chassis cabs can be combined with a wide range of bodywork and be mounted onto chassis as easily as possible.

Bodybuilders can now consult a dedicated Bodybuilder Portal website where vehicles can be configured via their identification number, and details can be found of the chassis’ customised plan, the body mounting guide, the manufacturing and delivery schedule as well as the homologation paperwork.
