Renault Launches Kangoo Electric Van

The Kangoo Van Z.E. the same as any other Kangoo

in February I blogged about the launch of the Renault Kangoo Van the electric Kangoo.

That has now arrived (almost) and the Kangoo Van goes on sale in the UK in November. it looks virtually identical to the Kangoo and this electric will be available in most of the configurations, too:

Two and five-seat

Maxi long wheelbase

650kg payload

Load of up to 4.6 cubic metres

The Kangoo Van will use lithium ion batteries are relatively lightweight and do not suffer memory problems. This that they can be partially and discharged without any concerns a loss of battery capacity, older types of rechargeable

Most people are pleasantly when they first an electric vehicle. Maximum is available almost from a giving a responsive drive. vehicles don t have manual either they have reducer transmission systems are fully automatic just forward or reverse.

The Kangoo Van has a 44kW electric motor to 60hp) that delivers a torque of 226Nm. This of torque should make the van quite lively, even loaded. Renault says the battery, when fully should be good for up to 106 miles on the driving cycle (they electric cars like too).

In reality, the Kangoo s (like that of all electric will vary considerably on how it s used. According to Renault, the range of electric vehicles more than that of an combustion-engined vehicle and depends on like speed, the lie of the land, use of the control system or heater, the temperature, driving style normal or eco-driving ), etc.

Inside the Kangoo Van Z.E. note the automatic-style gear

Unlike internal combustion-engined electric vehicles are at their energy-efficient in built-up areas in traffic, when a range of 125 can be achieved.

When the vehicle is at a (red lights, heavy etc.), the electric motor t use any energy, while the system recovers energy under works more frequently city motoring because of braking and stopping.

In contrast, weather conditions coupled sporty driving, hilly and no use of the pre-heating system, can reduce the s range to around 50 miles.

Buying A Kangoo Van Z.E.

has decided to seperate vehicle and ownership, presumably in the hope it will reassure potential who are worried about eventual replacement costs.

The Kangoo Van will be priced from +VAT and battery rental cost from £60 per month This price is for a battery of 36 months or more with a of 6,000 miles per year. mileages or shorter contracts cost more up to a maximum of per month + VAT for a 1 year/15,000 miles at the time of writing.

For comparison, for the standard Kangoo start about £11,500 +VAT.

The battery hire also 24/7 breakdown cover, including to the nearest charging point 50 miles) if you run out of battery power.

So Renault has appointed twenty (Zero Emission) dealers in the UK at only these will Z.E. vehicles, but all Renault will be able to perform maintenance. The Z.E. vans come with 3 year/100,000 warranties, just like vans.

Charging Facilities

the Kangoo Van Z.E. from a 13A will take 6-8 hours powerful sockets can be used for a charge if they are available.

have partnered with Gas to supply and fit Chargemaster charging for Z.E. customers at either home or office premises.

Renault say that they offer van rental  of internal vans at preferential rates to van owners so that they can longer journeys where facililties are not available.

Update 28/10/2011: Renault has announced that it has received for 15,000 Kangoo Van Z.E. the next four years. The order by far 10,000 vans from La Poste, the French service. The remaining orders from large French and public sector organisations.

motor manufacturers have a history of enjoying support French public sector and large French companies. The like buying French vans and lorries the same is with German manufacturers in Perhaps the UK should pursue a of buying British-made vehicles, too the manufacturers are no longer British, of cars and vans are made in factories more than people realise .
