The Renault Maxity is a light commercial vehicle with a cab-over-engine style truck launched by the French manufacturer Renault Trucks in 2007.[1] The Maxity is near-identical to the Nissan Cabstar, sharing the same drive-train and engine options and manufactured on the same Nissan owned production line in Avila, Spain.[2] While the sharing of engines and production facilities is part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the vehicle is sold by Renault Trucks which is owned by Volvo.[3]


In Europe the Maxity is available from 2.8 to 4.5-tonne versions, but only as a 3.4 or 3.5-tonne in Britain.[4] The Maxity is rear-wheel drive and powered with a choice of two diesel engines; a 2.5 L DXi2.5 in 110 bhp (82 kW; 112 PS) and 130 bhp (97 kW; 132 PS) states of tune, and a 3.0 L DXi3 turbo producing 150 bhp (112 kW; 152 PS). All are mated to a five-speed or six-speed manual transmission depending on specification.

In 2010, Renault Trucks trialled an electric version with a 2-tonne payload in Paris with drinks distributor Tafanel.[5] The prototype truck was developed in collaboration with electric commercial vehicle manufacturer PVI.[6]

The compact dimensions of the Maxity are promoted by Renault Trucks to emphasise the use in towns and cities, with a cab width of 1,870 mm (73.6 in), a length from 2,651 mm (104.4 in) to 4,961 mm (195.3 in) depending on configuration, and a compact turning radius of 4.8 m (189.0 in).
