Part of the fleet will be available for local businesses.
Since the lockdown is hopefully behind us, Renault delivered a noticeable number of 122 electric Kangoo Z.E.33 to Leeds City Council in the UK.
The authority intends not only to gradually become carbon-neutral, but also to educate West Yorkshire businesses about EVs through free trials:
“Via the innovative scheme, which Leeds City Council has launched in partnership with Highways England, West Yorkshire businesses and organisations are able to enjoy a completely free trial of electric vans, including one of 20 Renault Kangoo Z.E.33 for up to two months. Each van will be equipped with telematics devices, which gather journey and charging data, with users receiving a tailored report highlighting the findings and the environmental and potential financial benefits that transitioning to an electric vehicle can generate for their business or organisation. The Renault Kangoo Z.E. will make up nearly half of the 50 electric vans and cars that are available to trial.”
The Kangoo Z.E. is still the most popular electric small city van in Europe with a WLTP range of 143 miles (230 km), using a 33 kWh battery.
The price of the Kangoo Z.E. 33 starts at £19,380 (€21,470/$24,080), excluding VAT, after the Plug-in Van Grant.
