New Renault Kangoo Z.E. Gets Larger Battery, Motor, Charger And Heat Pump

This summer Renault is introducing four major upgrades for the Kangoo Z.E. – a new battery, a new motor, a new charger and the incorporation of a heat pump for the climate control system.

The battery option is the new Z.E. 33 (33 kWh), which extends range by around 50% compared to previous one:

  • 270 km (168 miles) NEDC compared to 170 km
  • 200 km (124 miles) real range in the summer (previously 125 km)
  • 120 km / 135 km (84 miles) with heat pump in the winter

The new electric motor is still rated at 44 kW (225 Nm), but this time it’s all-Renault designed and produced, which should help with costs.

On-board charger power has (thankfully) doubled to 7 kW (now required 6-hours for a full recharge).

And finally, for the very first time in an electric LCV, there is a heat pump. Additionally, Renault has implemented a pre-heating feature. All welcome additions.

    At £16.5k plus battery rental, I don’t think so. Renault have lost the plot, more Kwid and less 50p please.

    Yes, unfortunately prices (Kangoo and ZOE) seem to be going up. I’m guessing Renault are production limited, so feel they can charge what they like.
