Renault Kangoo ZE Is Now The Electric Small Van With The Longest Driving Range

Renault has just updated the Kangoo ZE with a new motor and battery package, increasing its range by 50 percent.

More specifically, the new Renault Kangoo ZE now features a 270km (167 miles) NEDC driving range, up from 170km (105 miles).

Renault says that this means that the new Kangoo ZE can now travel up to 200km (124 miles) in real driving conditions, giving it the longest available driving range in the small van segment.

The French company didn’t reveal any technical details about the new powertrain, saying that they will shed more light on January 13, 2017.

Renault celebrated its 100,000th electric vehicle sold back in September, with their best-selling model to be the compact Zoe which is also the best-selling EV in Europe. The Kangoo ZE also bears the title of Europe’s best-selling electric utility vehicle and the latest update will sure help it stay ahead in the sales charts.
