Renault has announced two additions to its Renault Pro+ range of commercial electric vehicles: the new Kangoo Z.E. and Master Z.E..
That brings to four the number of electric light commercial vehicles in the Renault lineup.
“Renault Pro+ is the undisputed market leader in electric LCV sales in Europe,” said Ashwani Gupta , global head of Renault’s LCV business. “With the new Kangoo Z.E. and Master Z.E., Renault Pro+ is both expanding its tailor-made offer to commercial customers as well as its range of connected services.”
Kangoo Z.E. has been Europe’s best-selling small electric van for six consecutive years.
The new model offers an improved battery and a new engine, improving its range by more than 50 percent. The new Kangoo Z.E. is rated at 270 km NEDC range, compared with 170 km for the previous version.
This is the best range of any electric LCV on the market. The Master Z.E. will bring Renault’s EV expertise to the large van segment, while maintaining the high quality that has made Master the segment benchmark.
“Today’s announcement marks another advancement in Renault’s EV leadership, with two new additions to our lineup that expand access to the benefits of electric mobility to more people,” said Gilles Normand, global head of Renault’s EV business. “Renault is focused on creating a zero-emission future. We look forward to bringing these next-generation EVs to our professional customers.”
