Renault Pro+ expands electric commercial range
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.
