Load bay

Rear entry to the cargo area - timber-lined on our vehicle - is by means of twin, unglazed, asymmetric doors with the narrower of the pair on the offside.

A sliding nearside door is a standard feature. The back doors can be swung through 180° and the door stays are easy to release.

Six load tie-down points are installed and an optional tailored rubber mat protected our vehicle’s load bed. The exterior is not left undefended – side rubbing strips protect the van’s bodywork from minor dents and dings.

Our Renault was fitted with a passenger seat that can be folded flat to extend the load bed. The section of full-height mesh bulkhead directly behind it can be swung out of the way through 90° and latched into place next to the driver’s seat. As a consequence, whatever is placed on the load area extension will not end up in the driver’s lap. The folding seat and swivelling bulkhead are options and boost the load cube by a notional 0.4m3 and the load length by 255mm.

Roof bar fixings are provided should you need to fit a ladder rack.

At less than 400kg, maximum towing weights for both braked and unbraked trailers are understandably low. Hauling a heavy trailer about will soon deplete your battery, however.
