Motoring has reached an historic turning point. Energy-related challenges and essential environmental requirements have seen electric technology establish itself.

In the future, this form of power will see development of a range of vehicles that deliver an holistic gain in terms of respect for the environment.

As a pioneer in this field, Renault is introducing Fluence Z.E. and Kangoo Van Z.E. The market’s first range of affordable electric vehicles is poised to be extended with the addition of Twizy and ZOE.

First unveiled at the 2010 Hanover show, followed by the ‘Maxi’ version which was introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Kangoo Van Z.E. arrives in Renault showrooms in November. It is targeted at business customers looking for an economical van that is more respectful of the environment.

Kangoo Van Z.E. is the market’s first affordable, all-electric van. Available in two- and five-seat Maxi versions, too, it carries over the same user-friendly functional features as the internal combustion-engined version with a carrying capacity ranging from 2.4cu m to 4.6cu m, a payload of 650kg and the same level of comfort.

Kangoo Van Z.E. offers a silent driving experience with maximum torque available from start-up, seamless acceleration thanks to the absence of gear changes, low running costs and zero emissions.

The first Renault electric vehicles will soon be delivered to customers and will mark the realisation of an ambitious strategy which seeks to make Renault the leader in zero-emission mobility.
