50% more autonomy for the Renault Kangoo Z. E.

Renault Kangoo Z.E.

The Renault Kangoo is one of the commercial vehicles is most well-known of the last two decades. load capacity, low cost of acquisition, as well as a maintenance cost greatly reduced, has made millions of businesses, self-employed and individuals have opted for this vehicle. In 2011, Renault wanted to revolutionize the market by offering the Renault Kangoo Z. E., that was one of the first commercial vehicles electric marketed by a manufacturer to a generalist.

sales results have been very discrete in these five years that it has been marketed. As in any electric vehicle, especially in the developing world a few years ago, the main problem that presents is the reduced autonomy that offers. Approvals 170 kilometers of autonomy in the cycle NDEC, although in a driving usual will be closer to the 100 kilometres of the 170 announced. Its electric motor, which yields a power 60 HP and a torque of 220 Nm, does not offer a great response, but the benefits in this type of vehicles are a matter of little importance.


As we said, the main problem with the Renault Kangoo Z. E. is their autonomy. The branch commercial vehicles from the French brand of diamond, Renault Pro+, has recently announced that it will present, on the 13th of January and during the Hall of Brussels, a update for this vehicle electric that will extend your ability to travel with a single charge of the battery.

The gain of autonomy, according to Renault Pro+ will be greater than 50 %, a positive development. In the cycle NDEC will be 270 kilometers the Renault Kangoo Z. E.-approve. Again, the real independence will be much lower. The subsidiary of commercial vehicles, Renault says, in its small press, that in real life will be 200 kilometers. This figure may be sufficient in vehicles used for distribution by the city or companies that operate in a small range of miles. In any case, any improvement is welcome.
