Fuel Type:

The Kangoo E-TECH was reasonably priced when sold new and so should be pretty affordable on the used market, too – although it will set you back more than an equivalent diesel model. There are savings to be had in other areas, including zero road tax (it’s £250 for a regular LCV), exemption from the London Congestion Charge until 2025 and free entry to other planned low-emissions zones.

Renault Kangoo E-TECH electric insurance group

The Kangoo E-TECH falls into similar insurance groups to its rivals, ranging from 30 to 33.


Until the end of January 2018, all Renaults came with a four-year/100,000-mile warranty. However, as most buyers on finance take out three-year deals, Renault revised its warranty cover to reflect this, taking it down to a three-year/100,000-mile warranty on all models. In addition there’s a five-year/100,000-mile warranty on the battery and four years/100,000 miles of cover for the rest of the electric drive system.


Renault offers variable servicing deals on the Kangoo E-TECH that are dependent on the kind of miles you do in a year and the battery contract you take out when purchasing.

Road tax

All Kangoo E-TECHs are road-tax-exempt, as they have zero tailpipe emissions. Van benefit tax, where applicable, is also zero.
