Renault has now launched the Kangoo Van ZE, it is the first of its four strong Electric Vehicle (EVs) impressive line up and it will be on show in all the first wave of United Kingdom Renault dealerships that specialise in EVs. Twenty-one electric vehicle sites have all been branded as ZE Expert and are now ready to offer the full range of sales and after-sales services for Renault’s electric vehicle the Kangoo Van ZE.
Each of the twenty-one sites will have fully trained staff that will be able to answer any question that fleet managers may have as well as offering advice on making the most of the benefits associated with running an electric fleet, including the environmental and financial factors. There will be a minimum of two fully trained ZE sales specialists to guide interested private and business customers through the funding and charging options, along with battery hire plans to calm any concerns over the performance and replacement costs. All ZE Expert sites will have a Kangoo Van ZE available for test drives, so that fleet managers can experience for themselves the differences of driving an electric vehicle. Renault are aware that there will be a number of electric vans on the market in the coming years and fleet managers will be making comparisons between the different choices before looking for a cheap van insurance quote.
Thierry Sybord, managing director of Renault UK, said “I’m delighted to see so many of our dealers embracing this new era of electric transport. With a full range of four fully-electric models set to launch in the UK in less than one year, we have high hopes for our ZE range. I’m sure our ZE Expert dealers will reap the rewards on both sales and after-sales and we look forward to charging ahead with them in the months and years ahead as we seek to attract as many electric vehicle buyers as possible.”
The dealerships have also brought in specialist ramps and equipment to deal with the service and maintenance of electric vehicles. Renault has also invested in three new charging points at each site. One will be in the workshop, one in the demonstrator area and one in the car park. The charging point in the car park will also be accessible for all EV customers to use.
