Renault Kangoo Z.E. Retains GreenFleet Title of “Electric Vehicle of the Year”
OCT 27 2013 BY ERIC LOVEDAY
For the second year in a row, the Renault Kangoo Z.E. was awarded GreenFleet’s title of “Electric Vehicle of the Year.”
Selecting the Kangoo Z.E. as the recipient of the award was a no-brainer. As the judges say, the Kangoo Z.E. “was more than a worthy winner again.”
The Kangoo Z.E. realy has no competition in the light-duty commercial electric sector, which is the area GreenFleet focuses on.
GreenFleet’s Colin Boyton, stated:
“As well as winning last year’s Electric Vehicle of the Year award from GreenFleet, it scooped ‘Ecovan of the Year’ and ‘International Van of the Year’ accolades. It is more than a worthy winner again.”
Since launching in late 2011, the Kangoo Z.E. has racked up over 11,000 sales. It’s easily Europe’s best-selling electric van, as there’s basically no competition out there.
In 2012, the Renault Kangoo won the International Van of The Year award.
Last June, the Kangoo Z.E. was restyled a bit and slightly updated with features like an enhanced dashboard and the ability to pre-program (via smartphone or PC) the vehicle to charge at off-peak times.
