List pricing is where most all-electric vehicles fall down. They're usually so expensive that they only make sense with the asking figure spread out over long leases. But refreshingly, things are different here. At first glance, asking prices ranging in the £19,000 to £22,000 bracket excluding the dreaded VAT look quite high. That's after you take the government's Plug-in Van grant into account.
As in the standard Kangoo line-up, Z.E. 33 model buyers get a choice of two main bodystyles - the standard 'L2' 4.2m long variant and, for a premium of £1,000, the bigger 4.6m-long 'L3' model, which can be ordered in two or five-seat form or in fully-glazed 'Crew Van Cab' form with a fold-out three-person split-folding rear bench.
On top of the purchase price, you'll also need to budget for a charging point, since Renault frowns upon operators using a three-pin plug supply on a regular basis, even if that were business-practical. The French brand works with British Gas for the installation of such a point, either at your home of place of business and the cost will be around £800 ex vat. The charging cable for this is of course supplied with the vehicle, but if you want a cable that will, occasionally, allow you to charge off a normal 220V home supply, then you'll need to buy a separate cable from your dealer.
