The Kangoo Z.E. gains more range for 2017

Renault has confirmed that its electric-powered Kangoo Z.E. van is getting a serious range boost.

Thanks to a new battery and motor, 168 miles (270 kilometres) can now be travelled on a single charge (according to the New European Driving Cycle measure). That equates to around 125 miles (200 kilometres) in real-world conditions.

While those figures still might not be good enough to convince some operators to switch from internal-combustion Kangoo models, they nevertheless represent a significant increase of almost 60 per cent versus the previous electric version.

The 2017 Kangoo Z.E. is due to make a first public appearance at next month's European Motor Show in Brussels. Full technical specifications are going to be released then.
