Renault’s electric Kangoo Z.E. has been awarded the title of International Van of the Year Award beating the Iveco Daily, Fiat Ducato and VW Caddy
Jury chairman Pieter Wieman explained: “With the Kangoo Van Z.E. Renault brings the electric van within the reach of the normal European van user,” he said, “thereby delivering a major contribution to environmental sustainability, one of the most important issues of the transport of goods by road nowadays.”
It is the first fully-electric van produced entirely in-house by a vehicle manufacturer.
By fitting the battery under the floor of Kangoo Van Z.E., Renault has kept the same load capacity (650kgs) and dimensions as the internal-combustion version.
Kangoo Van Z.E. is the first of four vehicles in the Renault Z.E. range to be launched in the next 12 months. It arrives in UK dealerships on 1st December priced from £16,990 excluding VAT.
The battery is hired for a monthly fee with a variety of mileage and duration permutations. For example, a 3 year/12,000 miles per annum contract is £74 per month excluding VAT.
