Re­nault Pro+ ex­pands elec­tric com­mer­cial range

Commercial Vehicle - - NEWS -

Re­nault Pro+ has un­veiled new range of elec­tric Light Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (LCVs) in France in the form of Twizy Cargo, ZOE, New Kan­goo Z.E. and Mas­ter Z.E. The elec­tric LCVs are aimed at sat­is­fy­ing a wide range of needs of busi­ness cus­tomers, ad­dress­ing at the same time the en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges. The new Kan­goo gains a new bat­tery and a new mo­tor. It now de­liv­ers a range of 270 km New Euro­pean Driv­ing Cy­cle (NEDC) com­pared to the range of 170 km pre­vi­ously. The elec­tric Mas­ter is aimed at fleets run­ning last-mile dis­tri­bu­tion ser­vices in a city, and is equipped with a 33kWh bat­tery co-de­vel­oped by Re­nault and LG Chem. The mo­tor de­vel­ops 76 hp, and is in­her­ited from ZOE. Mas­ter has a range of 200 km NEDC. The Z.E. Trip func­tion found on the elec­tric CVs lets the driver lo­cate all ac­ces­si­ble pub­lic charge points across Euro­pean coun­tries. The Z.E. Pass func­tion makes it easy to charge the CV from most pub­lic charg­ing points in Europe. Re­nault will un­veil the new LCVs across 2017. It will also roll out a num­ber of other con­nected ser­vices ded­i­cated to busi­ness users.
