One of Europe’s biggest-selling vans, the Kangoo is also available as an eco-friendly Z.E. model. The Z.E. comes in a choice of standard Kangoo or Kangoo Maxi guises. This widely praised commercial vehicle is extremely compact, enabling it to weave through busy city streets and slot into small parking spaces with ease.
The Kangoo Z.E. comes with 180o-opening asymmetric rear doors, enabling easy access to its cargo bay. Also included is a left side-loading door (and a right side-loading door with Maxi variants), which offers greater loading flexibility. Labour-saving features include power-operated side-view mirrors, which are also power-folding with Business+ trims.
Choose from one of three standard colours – Mineral White, Carmen Red and Mole Grey – to best suit your business’ brand identity. Other optional paint finishes are available too, including Jet Black, Nightwatch Blue and Mocha.
The Kangoo Z.E. features a height-adjustable seat and a telescopically adjustable steering wheel, each of which enables the driver to quickly establish a comfortable position. Other standard features include a convenient 12-volt power point and a full steel bulkhead, the latter separating the cab from the cargo bay.
Each Z.E. variant offers just as much load volume as its diesel-powered counterpart – up to 3,600 litres – while maximum payload capacity stands at 800kg. Maxi iterations, meanwhile, offer even more cargo space and greater haulage capacity.
The Z.E. leaves no carbon tyre prints, producing zero CO2 emissions. This 100-percent electric vehicle is just as easy to drive as its fuel-powered siblings however, and has the added advantage of delivering a near-silent ride. The Z.E. can be charged at home, at work or via one of many public charging points, which means no more queuing at the petrol station.
When fully charged, the vehicle offers a maximum range of 106 miles. The vehicle features an Eco mode which, when pressed, saves as much as ten percent of the driving range by reducing torque by roughly the same amount.
Technology, safety and security
In order to keep you and your fellow workmates entertained, the vehicle’s sound system includes a CD player and DAB digital radio. Bluetooth Connectivity and USB and AUX inputs are featured too, allowing for further media-playing opportunities.
Driver aids such as Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist and Grip Xtend are included as standard. The latter maximises grip in a variety of road conditions and offers three selectable drive modes: Road, Loose Ground and Expert.
