Renault announces commercial vehicle line-up for CV Show 10 March 2011

Star of the CV Show on the Renault stand in Birmingham next month (April 12—14) will be the fully-electric Kangoo Van ZE, one of seven UK debuts for the commercial vehicle OEM.

Renault enjoyed record UK LCV sales in 2010 and will have one of the largest presences at this year's event, doubling the size of its stand from last year and featuring 14 commercial vehicles.

Renault fleet and commercial vehicle operations director, Darren Payne, says that the firm aims to prove that electric LCVs can be affordable to run, good to drive, as well as offering a more relaxed driving environment, due to their near silent operation.

"We've made no bones about our ambitious plans to increase our share of the UK conversions market to 8% in the months ahead," states Payne.

"Our wealth of new models on show underlines that message, and I'm equally pleased to be showing Kangoo Van ZE, the first affordable factory-built electric van in the UK."

The French brand's compact vans will be available from Autumn this year in both two- and five-seat versions.
