Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium was a fitting location for the French brand and last year’s International Van of the Year to land another trophy, which was presented by Fifth Gear presenter Jonny Smith. The London club hosted Public Sector Information magazine GreenFleet’s annual awards on 17th October.
Judges, including the editorial and research team and independent representatives from the likes of ICFM (Institute of Car Fleet Management), said Kangoo Van Z.E. “was more than a worthy winner again” and had no hesitation in reinstating it as the Electric Vehicle of the Year.
GreenFleet’s Colin Boyton, one of the judges, said: “As well as winning last year’s Electric Vehicle of the Year award from GreenFleet, it scooped ‘Ecovan of the Year’ and ‘International Van of the Year’ accolades. It is more than a worthy winner again.”
Kangoo Van Z.E. is Europe’s best-selling small electric van with sales of over 11,000. Since its launch at the end of 2011, it has been acclaimed repeatedly by the media and secured International Van of The Year award in 2012.
The zero-emission LCV was restyled in June and now features Renault’s new styling identity. In the cabin, the dashboard has been refreshed and enhanced, and owners can now programme the battery to charge remotely to benefit from off-peak electricity rates using their computer or smartphone thanks to the ‘My Z.E. inter@ctive’ pack.
