It is a pure electric vehicle, Renault Master ZE that has a hydro-cleaning system -also electric- equipped with a 450-liter water tank and high-pressure equipment powered by a 24 V and 50,000 Wh battery pack. The vehicle itself has a maximum power of 57 kW, with an electric power consumption of 210 Wh / km and an electric range of 193 km.

González de Zárate has highlighted that due to its characteristics "it will be used to reinforce the night-time washing in the Old Town, El Calvari area and pedestrian area of ​​the city", where pressure cleaning is used to improve the traditional washing.

At the same time, confirmed the councilor, it will be used in daytime operations where this reinforcement is necessary. The system is capable of using water with all kinds of disinfectant products in its urban tasks.
