Renault is revamping its all-electric LCV range with the introduction of the All-New Renault Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric and the New Master E-TECH Electric.
The All-New Renault Kangoo Van E-TECH features a 186-mile* range and builds on the popular Kangoo Z.E, which sold more than 70,000 units since its launch 10 years ago.
New Master E-TECH Electric 52kWh features a 124-mile* range and is more versatile than ever before with 15 variations to choose from.
All-new Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric
The All-new Kangoo Van E-TECH Electric improves on its Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) stablemate which won 'International Van of the year 2022'.
Cargo capacity remains unaltered as the battery is under the floor, meaning that there are up to 3.9 cubic meters of storage volume in the L1 versions and 4.9 cubic meters in the long-wheelbase model which is to be released at a later date. A 600kg payload (800kg in the long-wheelbase model) and a 500kg towing capacity make it an ideal business choice.
A 45kWh lithium-ion battery gives the Kangoo a range of up to 186 miles on a single charge, resulting in an unbeatable cost to run. The battery features a liquid cooling system on versions with the 22kW AC charger, as well as an electric resistance heater that ensures the battery is at the correct temperature for optimum charging times. The battery is guaranteed for 8 years or 99,500 miles, meaning Renault will replace it free of charge if the capacity reduces to less than 70 per cent of its original value during the warranty period.
A 90kW motor powers the Kangoo producing 245Nm of torque for instant acceleration and a smooth driving experience. Eco mode limits the power output and top speed helping to maximise the overall range.
There are three regenerative braking modes: Sailing, Drive, and Brake. The combination of drive and braking modes allows for up to six different driving styles to suit your needs.
An efficient air conditioning with a heat pump gives you the best range in all seasons on the New Kangoo Van E-Tech Electric, allowing for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. A heated windscreen is also available along with heated seats and a steering wheel which provide greater comfort in cold weather whilst having little impact on the battery.
There are three charger types; a three-phase 11kW charger suitable for domestic charging, a 22kW three-phase charger for accelerated charging at public terminals, and an optional 80kW DC fast charger which can add 105 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
With the MyRenault app, or via the Easy Link multimedia system, you can schedule charging times, pre-heat the cabin, find charging points on your journey, and calculate destinations that can be reached with the remaining battery charge.
New Master E-TECH 52kWh
The Master Van E-TECH Electric has been given a brand new 52kWh battery, increasing its range up to 124 miles. Efficiency is enhanced by an ARB system (Adaptive Regenerative Braking System) that maximises the amount of energy recovered when slowing down. Eco mode, paired with low rolling resistance tyres, maximises range and optimises driver comfort.
Two charging options are offered, a single-phase 7.4kW AC charger, suitable for domestic charging, and a 22kW DC charger for faster charging at public charging stations, allowing the addition of over 30 miles of range in just 45 minutes. It takes 5 hours to reach 80% charge when plugged into a 7.4kW wallbox. The 52kWh battery is paired with an efficient 57kW motor making the Master E-TECH ideal for driving in both dense urban environments and along country lanes.
There are 15 versions of the Master E-TECH available, with a choice of three different lengths and heights. Platform cab or chassis cab versions come in either L2 or L3 lengths which are ideal bases for flatbed, tippers, or large volume conversions that can carry up to 20 cubic meters of cargo.
Like the Kangoo E-TECH Electric, Master E-TECH Electric has the same cargo capacity as its ICE counterparts due to the battery being located under the floor.
There is a host of innovative cockpit features such as the 'Easy Life' shelf located above the glove box, providing additional workspace and a lunch break area equipped with a large central cup holder, as well as a digital tablet docking station in the centre of the dashboard, 10.5-litre 'Easy Life' drawer, wireless smartphone charger, and Renault's R-Link Evolution infotainment system.
Safety features on the Master include Front Park Assist, Rear Park Assist, Rear View Camera, Rear View Assist with a camera display, Side Wind Assist, Automatic Lights and Wipers, Active Emergency Braking System and Lane Departure Warning.

The information does not refer to a particular individual vehicle and does not constitute part of the offer. The figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare figures with vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. The electric range shown was achieved using the new (WLTP) test procedure. Figures were obtained after the battery was fully charged. Actual real-world driving results may vary depending on factors such as the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted after registration, weather conditions, driving styles and vehicle load.
