The New Kangoo Van Z.E. 33 which goes on sale today delivers a driving range of 170 miles (NEDC), offering over 50 per cent more range than the previous model.
Priced from £14,194.67 (after Plug-in Van Grant, excluding VAT), the Kangoo Z.E. is now available to order with demonstrators due to arrive in showrooms from November 2017.
Available in four variants, the New Kangoo Van Z.E. 33 has the longest range of any pure electric van on sale today. A single charge delivers a 170 mile (NEDC) range, with Renault estimating in real-world driving a range of up to 124 miles.
The new Z.E. 33 battery, which replaces the previous battery offering 106 miles (NEDC), boasts 33kWh of useful energy which is equivalent to almost double the storage capacity of the previous battery.
Motorists still have the option of purchasing the Kangoo van with a monthly battery lease agreement or outright with no battery lease agreement. For those who opt for the leasing option charges are as below:
Monthly Battery Lease Options
Up to 4,500 miles
Up to 6,000 miles
Up to 7,500 miles
Up to 9,000 miles
Up to 10,500 miles
A new feature to the Kangoo range is the optional permanent ECO mode. Already available as a driver operated selection, ECO mode increases range by up to 10% through modifying the throttle response and applying ECO engine maps, helping drivers achieve the optimum range at all times.
As the leading manufacturer of all-electric LCVs, Renault have introduced an optional heat pump – a first for an electric LCV. Improving range during cold temperatures the heat pump heats the New Kangoo Van Z.E. 33 more efficiently without effecting the range. It also retains the pre-conditioning system which allows users to hear or cool their vehicle before driving whilst the vehicle is plugged into mains electricity.
With four variants to choose from, Kangoo Van Z.E. 33 – available with two seats and a load capacity of up to 3.6m3, Kangoo Maxi Van Z.E. 33 – available with two seats and up to 4.6m3 load capacity, Kangoo Maxi Crew Van Z.E. 33 – available with five seats and a load capacity of 1.3m3 and Kangoo Maxi Crew Van Cab Z.E. 33 featuring an innovative multipositional bulkhead allowing a crew of up to five people or a load capacity of up to 3.6m³, Renault are offering the perfect type of Kangoo van for all users and are taking a step in the right direction to retain the crown of Europe’s best-selling electric van.
The New Kangoo Van Z.E. 33 is available with a choice of Renault Service Plans. The 1 year/18,000 mile (whichever comes first) plan is available at the recommended retail price of £159, 2 year/36,000 miles at the recommended retail price of £309 and the 3 year/48,000 mile service plan is available at £519.

All versions provide the peace of mind of Renault’s 4+ Z.E. warranty and assistance package. The vehicle is protected by Renault for four years or 100,000 miles (first two years have no mileage limit). For Z.E. vehicles with a Battery Hire Contract, the Renault Assistance cover is linked to the period of the Battery Hire. In the event of a breakdown even if you run out of charge, Renault provides emergency roadside repairs or repatriation 24/7 every day of the year, plus three years’ European cover. There is also a three-year paint warranty and 12 years’ cover against corrosion.
