The Renault network has celebrated the 10,000th registration of a Kangoo Van ZE, the European segment-leading small electric van.

Béatrice Foucher, Manager of Renault's Electric Vehicle programme; Uwe Hochgeshurtz, Corporate Sales Manager, and Achim Schaible, Director of Renault Germany, officially handed the keys to the 10,000th Kangoo Van ZE to Deutsche Bahn's Purchasing and Technical Director Gerhard Dech at the Frankfurt Motor Show [see picture].

The vehicle will be used by Deutsche Bahn's (German Railways) maintenance division.

Kangoo Van ZE is Europe's best-selling small electric van and accounts for almost 10% of Kangoo Van sales.

Not surprisingly, it is also the best-selling electric vehicle in France, where it has won over some 6,000 business customers.

The zero-emission LCV was restyled in June with a new front end and the incorporation of new features like the connected R-Link multimedia tablet.

Kango Van ZE is manufactured exclusively at the MCA plant in Maubeuge, France, and is marketed in 20 European countries.
