Renault Ireland tells us that in continuing its commitment to electric vehicles, it will showcase the brand-new Kangoo Z.E. 33 van, the ZOE Z.E. 40 car, as well as the quirky electric Twizy at stand EV13 during the SEAI Energy Show 2018 at the RDS on 18th and 19th April. Each vehicle will also be available for test drives over the two days of the show.
Renault has been Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle brand since 2010.
The new Kangoo Z.E. 33 boasts the longest driving range of any electric LCV currently on the market. In NEDC tests, Kangoo Z.E. 33 recorded a 270km range, which equates to a real-world range of 200km in summer or 120km in colder winter weather. This extended range has been achieved with an increase in battery capacity from 22 kWh to 33 kWh, enabling more Renault customers to electrify their businesses. New Kangoo Z.E. 33 is available from €28,190 after the SEAI grant of €3,800 (battery included).
At 400km, the Renault ZOE Z.E. 40 has the longest NEDC range of any mainstream electric car. The Z.E. 40 battery provides an exceptional real-world range of 300km in summer and 200km in cold winter. ZOE is Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle and prices start from €23,490 including battery and SEAI grant (€27,490 with the Z.E. 40 battery).
The quirky and instantly recognisable two-seater Renault Twizy is perfect for urban driving and starts from €9,995, offering battery hire based on distance travelled.
The SEAI Energy Show is Ireland’s leading business to business sustainable energy event, with over 100 exhibitors showcasing energy efficient and renewable energy products and services from Ireland and Europe.
Patrick Magee, Country Operations Director Renault Ireland told us: “We are delighted to be returning to the SEAI Energy Show once again, having launched our new Kangoo Z.E. 33 van and ZOE Z.E. 40 in the past year. We believe Irish businesses are ready to embrace electric, and with the longest range of any electric LCV, the new Kangoo Z.E. is the ideal way to do this. These additions to our EV range demonstrate Renault’s commitment and proactive policy as Europe’s electric vehicle pioneer and number one electric vehicle brand.”
