Renault unveils next-generation Kangoo van

Renault has unveiled its next-generation Kangoo small van, offering new exterior and interior styling, as well as new infotainment and driver assistance technologies.

Available in two lengths, it will offer a load volume of 3.3cu m to 3.9cu m in the standard van and from 4.2cu m  to 4.9cu m in the longer version.

The range will also feature a pure electric ZE version. Renault says since the original Kangoo ZE’s launch in 2011, it has been the best-selling electric commercial vehicle in Europe with more than 50,000 sold to date.

The new Kangoo will feature a completely redesigned front end with a chrome line between the grille and the front bumper.

The cabin gets a new interior, too, with a horizontal dashboard featuring numerous storage spaces, while Renault says completely redesigned seats enhance comfort and durability.

The range will feature the manufacturer’s Easy Link multimedia system and new driving aids, including the permanent rear view digital interior mirror.

Renault says this provides “excellent rear visibility” where a bulkhead obscures natural rear-view vision. Other new features will include new advanced driver assistance systems.

Further details of the range will be released next year.

Virtual Fleet & Mobility Live 2020: The virtual fleet expo

Video: Fleet News editor-in-chief Stephen Briers and events director Chris Lester introduce the 2020 virtual event and give a preview of what it will look like.

The annual event was due to take place at the NEC, Birmingham on October 6-7 but as a result of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and after consultation with the visitor advisory board, Fleet News has taken the decision to hold an online event in November instead.

Among the exclusive features at the virtual event will be a special EV & Hybrid Showroom which will bring to life the latest electric models with interactive displays that will enable you to get up close to the UK’s best fleet suppliers.

Visitors and exhibitors will be able to communicate through live chat, participate in live Q&As, ‘visit’ branded booths, and find out about industry-leading technology solutions.

The decision to go virtual was made easier by the fact that around 40% of fleets already have, or expect to shortly have, a company travel ban that would prevent them from attending live events this year, while a similar proportion did not anticipate attending live events until sometime in 2021.
