December 21, 2023

In a landmark moment at the Maubeuge plant, Renault celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Renault Kangoo and Renault Kangoo E-Tech, as the 4 millionth unit rolled off the assembly line.

Since its inception in 1997, the Kangoo has been a trailblazer in the leisure-activity vehicle segment, renowned for its unique design and innovative sliding side door.

Now available in 50 countries across the globe, the Renault Kangoo has achieved a staggering sales milestone, surpassing 4.4 million units, with an impressive 4 million units produced at the Maubeuge facility.

Additionally, the vehicle has left its mark on the South American market for 25 years, with production in Argentina. The Kangoo is a dominant force in the electric vehicle market with the Kangoo E-Tech and previously the Renault Kangoo ZE, having sold over 100,000 units in Europe since 2011.

Over the years, the Kangoo family has evolved, expanding its appeal to a diverse range of customers. From family use to passenger transport, the Kangoo offers a comfortable ride with its independent, modular seating and spacious interior. The Grand Kangoo version gets seven modular seats, providing an impressive 1,024 different configurations.

The Renault Kangoo is also made and sold as the Mercedes-Benz Citan and Mercedes-Benz eCitan as well as the Nissan Townstar and Nissan Townstar Electric.

The Maubeuge plant is responsible for producing all members of the Kangoo family, both internal combustion and 100% electric versions, with batteries assembled on-site.

La Poste: A Historic Partnership Reaches a Milestone

On Thursday, December 14, 2023, the keys of the 4 millionth Renault Kangoo E-Tech electric car were presented to long-time Kangoo customer, La Poste.

La Poste, a historic customer of Renault for over a century, has been using Renault vans for the delivery of postmail and parcels to the French people. A pioneer in electric mobility since 1904, La Poste stands as a world leader for its all-electric fleets, with an extensive history of partnership with Renault.

Having joined the Renault Express electric program in the 1980s, La Poste currently operates the largest fleet of electric vehicles, primarily with Kangoo Z.E.

The partnership has been crucial in establishing Renault as a pioneer and leader in the electric vehicle field. The iconic yellow color of Renault Kangoo, used by La Poste for delivering letters and parcels, has even become a symbol in Japan, where the vehicle is particularly popular. A limited edition "La Poste" was sold in Japan in 2015, further solidifying the global impact of this enduring partnership.
