Kango Van Z.E. - First Renault EV Delivered in UK

Renault UK has just announced the first delivery of an electric vehicle, more specifically a Kango Van Z.E. The ones to take delivery of the first set of keys was printer Patrick Chard, who will be enjoying “cruising around silently and with zero-emissions in road use in the first model from the French marque’s electric vehicle range to reach our shores.”
In the UK, the Kangoo Van Z.E. is priced from £16,990 excluding VAT, with monthly battery hire from £60. The electric light van is also available for hire from £424 per month over three years.

“It is fantastic, very exciting to be first. We made a conscious decision a couple of years ago to be as green as possible, from vehicles to printing presses and with everything we buy. The Kangoo Van Z.E. is the first electric van to market from a manufacturer and it ticks every box for us. It is great for our customers too, as they are also concerned about the environment. We can now deliver locally with zero emissions and make considerable savings on fuel costs over a period of time,” explains Patrick Chard, Managing Director of Murrays the Printers, based in Alston Drive, Milton Keynes.

“Renault has always been committed to reducing the carbon emissions of its vehicles, so to produce a range of zero-emission electric vehicles is incredibly exciting. From a daring concept to a striking reality, we’re thrilled to see the fruition of years of work on our Z.E. range begin with Renault’s Kangoo Van Z.E. on sale at Marshall Milton Keynes and the other ground-breaking sites. Several well-known UK companies have already ordered Kangoo Van Z.E. for their fleet requirements, so we’re sure many private customers will join Mr Chard in reaping the rewards of lower-cost and greener electric motoring,” says Ian Plummer, Director of Commercial Operations Renault UK.
