Renault Kangoo Van Z.E.33 named ‘Best Electric Van’ by VansA2Z and Van Fleet World
In the first ever ‘Best Electric Van’ prize awarded by VansA2Z and Van Fleet World for the first time to electric vehicles, the all-electric Renault Kangoo Van Z.E.33 has emerged as the winner.
The honour of being named the ‘Best Electric Van’ was received by Renault Kangoo Van Z.E.33 at the VansA2Z & Van Fleet World 2018 Van Awards event held recently in Twickenham.
The independent judging panel for the awards voted the Renault Kangoo Van Z.E.33 as the ‘Best Electric van’ after taking several factors into account, including the range, usability and frugality of the van. The cost of the van begins at £14,194.67 +VAT (including Plug-in Van Grant).
The Kangoo Van Z.E.33 was launched by Renault with a 33kW battery in September last year. The van has already received upgrades in the form of a higher-density battery with more storage capacity as well as the improved charging capabilities. The new 33kWh battery of the van boasts a single phase 7kW AC charger which helps the battery to reach a ‘full charge’ in barely six hours.
Moreover, Renault has also made the all-electric van more attractive for the consumers by offering several body styles via its different models which, besides the Kangoo Van Z.E.33, include the Kangoo Maxi Z.E.33, the Kangoo Maxi Crew Van Z.E.33, and the Kangoo Maxi Crew Van Cab Z.E.33.
