The Renault Kangoo - Diesel vs Electric 

The new Renault Kangoo comes in either Diesel (Dci) or Electric (Z.E). With large parts of London, and other major cities, looking to introduce Clean Air Zones or the Ultra Low Emission Zones, we take a look at the financial benefits of switching to electric.

The Kangoo Z.E comes with a WLTP range of 143 miles, with running costs also considerably lower - according to the example below.

(1) Based on 60,000 miles acheiving 40 mpg at UK average diesel cost of £1.36 per litre. (2) Based on 60,000 miles acheiving 100 miles per charge average using latest available pricing for business electricity average price in UK at 13.79p per KWh. (3) Charging point cost based on domestic unit subject to being approved for £500 OLEV Charge point grant customer contribution is from as little as £300. Offer differs n Scotland whereby the Energy savings trust will top up to cover the price of a basic 7 KWh charge point installation.
