FAVORED by many small companies and large families alike, the Renault Kangoo has been a common site on our streets in one form or another for nearly 18 years and has proved to be very popular. So much so in fact that the Maubeuge plant in Northern France has just produced its one-millionth second-generation Kangoo.
Renault has been producing this leisure activity vehicle and its LCV counterpart in France since 2007. Initially released in 1998 and then redesigned in 2007, the Kangoo is now available in two forms: a leisure activity vehicle for retail customers and an LCV for the brand’s business customers. The LCV comes in a choice of three sizes – the Kangoo Compact, Kangoo Express and Kangoo Maxi – as well as an electric version, the Kangoo Z.E.
In 2015, the LCV version represented 64 per cent of overall Kangoo production. The same year, 90 per cent of all Kangoos produced (PC + LCV) featured diesel engines, 7 per cent had petrol engines and 3 per cent were electric.
