Electric Renaults available in 2023

While the hybrid will soon be in the spotlight for the restyling of the Clio and the Captur, Renault will have an additional electric novelty in its range, via its Kangoo MPV.

Its marketing is scheduled for the beginning of next year with an expected minimum price of 37,000 euros. On the other hand, it will be necessary to wait beyond 2023 to see the future Scénic in zero-emission.
