Hydrogen-Powered Kangoo Z.E. And Master Z.E. Join Renault’s LCV Lineup

Renault has strengthened its light commercial vehicle range by launching the hydrogen-powered versions of the Kangoo and Master.

Offered as more versatile solutions to electric vans, they feature technology developed together with Symbio, a subsidiary of the Michelin Group, which was tested by Renault since 2014.

The Kangoo Z.E. Hydrogen will launch before the end of the year, with a starting price of €48,300 ($53,883) in France, excluding tax, and a load volume of 3.9 cubic meters (137.7 cu-ft). The WLTP certification is underway, but Renault estimates that it will have a range of around 370 km (230 miles).

Pricing for the larger Master Z.E. Hydrogen has yet to be disclosed, yet it will be offered in both van and chassis cab body styles. It has a load volume that varies between 10.8 and 20 cubic meters (381.4-706.3 cu-ft), and two hydrogen tanks located in the body that will give it a range of 350 km (217 miles), as per the automaker’s estimates.

Depending on the hydrogen tank capacity, filling it up will take between 5 and 10 minutes, and the vehicles emit nothing more than water vapors.

“These vehicles provide professionals with all the range they require for their long-distance journeys, as well as record charging times”, said senior vice president Denis Le Vot. “And the advantages do not stop here, as Renault Master Z.E. Hydrogen and Renault Kangoo Z.E. Hydrogen run on decarbonized energy that respects the environment, while offering all the comfort of electric driving.”
