Kangoo Van ZE has added another major accolade to its ever-growing trophy cabinet after collecting the Eco Van of the Year trophy at the UK's VansA2Z awards.
Its latest award, picked up in London, came after the Kangoo Van ZE over-powered stiff competition from several rivals, including the Mercedes-Benz Vito E-CELL and Citroen Berlingo Electrique.
Renault’s ground-breaking Kangoo Van ZE, the world’s first electric LCV produced by a vehicle manufacturer, comes in a wide variety of options, with standard and long-wheelbase, two or five-seater, panel or crew van.
Commenting on its latest success, Renault’s Ben Fletcher, product manager, electric vehicle programme, said: “Awareness of the benefits associated with electric vans, from a cost, driver and environmental perspective, is growing on a daily basis and I’m sure this latest independent endorsement will generate even more buzz around Kangoo Van ZE and help to highlight it as the clear market leader.”
Editor Neil McIntee added: “Renault’s battery-powered Kangoo Van ZE is the only vehicle of its type that is a viable proposition for ordinary businesses eager to cut their carbon footprint, and that is as good a reason as any for VansA2Z to award it our Eco Van of the Year accolade for 2014.”
