RENAULT is cruising with confidence down Electric Avenue with the latest version of its Kangoo van.

Renault Pro+, the company's specialist business vehicle network, is to present the all-electric New Kangoo Z.E. on January 13 at the 2017 European Motor Show in Brussels, Belgium.

The Kangoo equipped with a new motor and battery package that will increase the model's driving range by more than 50 per cent, from 106 miles to 168 miles. That is equivalent to 124 miles in real world driving conditions.

This means the Z.E. will offer the longest available driving range in the small van market.

Renault says the Kangoo Van Z.E. is a completely practical solution for environmentally-conscious business customers who have already praised the driving enjoyment it delivers, as well as its carrying capacity and competitive operating costs.
