Renault Kangoo ZE Wins 15000 Orders


The newly announced Renault Kangoo Van Zero Emission brings in a massive 15,000 order from the first bids for public authorities organised by the public procurement organization UGAP in France. More than 15,000 Kangoo Van Z.E. are to be ordered over a four-year period by 19 of France’s largest companies that took part in the call for bids.

Kangoo Van Z.E. is produced at the Maubeuge plant in France along with its internal-combustion sister. The plant has been specialised in the production of light commercial vehicles for 20 years and is able to continuously adapt to the diversity inherent to this type of vehicle (short and long versions, panel version, etc.) and to sales demand.

This 100% electric green van will also be available to order in the UK from next month priced £16,990.

Renault press release:

Renault has won the first lot in a call for bids initiated 18 months ago by the public authorities, which called on La Poste chairman Jean-Paul Bailly to form a group of orders from large companies interested in acquiring electric vehicles. The invitation to tender was entrusted to the public procurement organisation UGAP.

The first phase of the selection process was referred to as “competitive dialog”. Every month, the manufacturers taking part in the call for bids met with purchasing representatives from the order group to answer their questions, present their range and feedback their needs. This phase was used to build a panorama of the offering and draw up the technical specifications meeting the needs of the members of the order group.

Commenting Jerome Stoll, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing & Light Commercial Vehicles said: “This success by Renault confirms the relevance of our electric vehicle offering – products and services alike – with business customers. The 19 large companies acquiring Kangoo Van Z.E. were attracted to its intrinsic qualities and by our original business model, based in particular on battery rental. I would like to thank sincerely the customers in the call for bids that placed their trust in us and the Renault employees that made this possible.”
