Renault claims that "filling up" the Kangoo Express Z.E. will cost only about €1 to €2, depending on the price of electricity in each market. But the Kangoo Express Z.E. will have the same payload capacity of 650 kg as the standard, non-electric model.

Renault has premiered the Kangoo Express Z.E. at the International Commercial Vehicle show in Hanover, Germany.

The Kangoo Express Z.E. is an all-electric, commercial variant of the Renault Kangoo. Renault has put a price tag on the vehhicle of €20,000 (excluding VAT) but the Kangoo Express Z.E. can come with tax rebates of up to a €5,000 in certain European countries (such as Renault's home market of France) that offer tax credits for low emissions vehicles knocking that price down to around €15,000, not including VAT.

The compact commercial vehicle runs on a 22 kWh lithium-ion battery (which comes with a seperate €72 monthly cost when leasing the vehicle) powering the electric motor that produces 44 kW (60 PS / 59 bhp) and 226 Nm (167 lb-ft) of torque. The Kangoo Express Z.E. has a range of 160 km (99 miles).

The Kangoo Express Z.E. goes on sale in Europe in the middle of next year.
