Renault Kangoo Z.E. electric powered light commercial vehicle

It has been announced that La Poste, the French postal service, will order 10,000 electric Kangoo vans from Renault.

The Kangoo Z.E. is the electric version of Renault’s light commercial vehicle. It has a range of up to 170km (depending on driving conditions) and can carry the same load as the internal combustion-engined version.

According to Renault, the van costs an average of €1.50 to recharge, while maintenance costs are comparable to an equivalent internal combustion-engined vehicle.

There is no word on when the vehicle will be launched in Australia.
