Orders open for new Renault Kangoo
July 18, 2022
The all-new Renault Kangoo van is available to pre-order now with prices starting from just £17,650 plus VAT.
The bold, contemporary exterior design, a brand-new interior, and the latest in driver assistance technologies including Advanced Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control, have already ensured the Renault Kangoo continues the award-winning success of its predecessor by claiming the titles of International Van of the Year 2022 and What Van? Awards Compact Van of the Year 2022.
With the availability of a pure electric drivetrain and a comprehensive specification designed to optimise usability and convenience for businesses, the Kangoo delivers the same innovations, equipment and comfort for which the popular van has become synonymous.
It is available with three front seats with a central folding backrest that turns into a handy work surface, plus almost 60 litres of storage in the cab, as well as the latest generation ADAS including Advanced Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
Broadening its appeal further is an eight-inch EASY LINK infotainment system with wireless smartphone charging, plus a range of door and glazing options to suit trades and businesses of all types, including an extra-wide side loading door on long-wheelbase models that offers an additional 200mm of cargo access.
The clever new Easy Inside Rack allows long items to be safely stored internally rather than relying on an external roof rack, boosting security and reducing wind resistance, thereby aiding fuel economy and range.
With a load volume of up to 4.2m3, up to 615kg of payload, and 1,500kg of towing capacity, the Kangoo E-Tech electric delivers up to 186 miles (WLTP) of driving range thanks to its generous 45kWh battery, located under the load floor where it has no impact on the cargo area.
It can be charged by a typical 7.4kW Wallbox in less than seven hours, while rapid DC charging at up to 75kW can deliver an 80 per cent charge in around 43 minutes. Charging at a typical 22kW public charger from 15 to 80 percent takes 1.5 hours, while a generous warranty covers the battery’s performance for 8 years or 100,000 miles.
For the first time, the Renault Kangoo is also now available with the efficient TCe 100 petrol engine, alongside the frugal and proven dCi 95 and dCi 115 diesel engines. In another first, the latter is offered exclusively with the smooth-shifting seven-speed automatic EDC transmission.
Available in two trim levels, Start and Advance, every Kangoo comes equipped with automatic headlights and wipers, a 3.5-inch TFT driver information display, DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, electric front windows, manual air conditioning, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. Also standard is a comprehensive array of safety features, such as hill start assist, emergency E-call and cruise control with speed limiter.
Fully electric Kangoo E-Tech models also benefit from automatic air conditioning, a heated front windscreen, heated seats, and Z.E. Voice.
Advance models build on the generous level of standard equipment with an eight-inch touchscreen EASY-LINK display with smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an electric parking brake, reverse parking sensors, premium gear stick with chrome inserts, cloth upholstery with yellow accents, 16-inch ‘Flex’ wheels, body-coloured door rails, and a wide view mirror.
In addition, a wide selection of optional extras are available, including wireless smartphone charging, adaptive cruise control, Rear View Assist camera, hands-free parking, and several electronic driver aids such as blind spot warning and intervention, Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS), driver attention alert, high beam assist and lane keep assist.
Priced from £17,650 plus VAT, the Kangoo is predicted to enjoy residual values after 3 years or 30,000 miles that are up by 20-35 per cent over its predecessor depending on model.
Available to pre-order now at Renault dealers, order books for the all new Kangoo open officially on September 1, with first customer deliveries expected in October.
