RENAULT has announced prices and specifications of its new Kangoo compact van range as well as revealing an updated version of the larger all-electric Master van which now has more range.
The new Kangoo will be released later in the year and the line-up will feature a TCe 100 petrol engine alongside two diesel engines and the electric Kangoo E-Tech.
Prices start from £17,650 plus VAT for the TCe version with E-Tech model costing from £26,500 plus VAT after the Government grant for low emission vans.
The diesel models are priced from £18,550 for the dCi 95 and £21,450 for the more powerful dCi 115 variant which is fitted with a seven-speed automatic EDC transmission.
The versions of the new Kangoo are available with three front seats and a central folding backrest that turns into a work surface, plus almost 60 litres of storage in the cab, as well as the latest generation ADAS including advanced lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control with a stop and go feature.
The electric E-Tech Kangoo has a load volume of up to 4.2 cubic metres, a 615 kilo payload and a 1.5 tonne towing capacity.
Recharging up to 80 per cent can be done in just over 40 minutes from a fast charger while a full charge from a 7.4kW wallbox takes less than seven hours.
Two trim levels are available - Start and Advance - with the latter priced from Â£18,650.
All versions feature automatic headlights and wipers, a 3.5-inch TFT driver information display, DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, electric front windows, manual air conditioning, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, and a height-adjustable driver's seat.
Also standard is an array of safety features such as hill start assist, emergency E-call, and cruise control with speed limiter.
The E-Tech version also comes with automatic air conditioning, a heated front windscreen, heated seats, and voice control.
The new Kangoo is due for release in October.
