Journalists captured a test sample of the updated Renault Kangoo van. The car body received much more camouflage than before. It is known that the novelty will also be offered with hybrid and fully electric motors.

The commercial vehicle segment in Europe is now the most competitive than ever. Manufacturers such as Toyota, Ford, Citroen, Volkswagen, and possibly even Suzuki are fighting for customers with new models, and Renault will soon join them with the all-new Kangoo LCV. A cargo van was spotted in northern Sweden, but, surprisingly, the prototype received more camouflage than before.
 
This “fresh” batch of shots shows that the new Kangoo will increase in size to better compete with the new Volkswagen Caddy and Ford Transit Connect, which is one of the best-selling models in the segment.

You can hardly see it in these photos, but we know that Renault will try to come up with a completely new design style for its commercial model. Designers will abandon the old square shape.

We know for sure that the French automaker is working on the all-electric Kangoo Z.E receiver. and, in fact, specifically this prototype car, it may well get an electric motor. Yes, the prototype has an invisible charging hole, but it does not have an exhaust pipe at the rear.

 However, we expect Kangoo diesel versions to remain the most popular choice among buyers on the Old Continent, where compression ignition engines are still popular due to their low fuel consumption. With this in mind, under the hood we can expect a new improved 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine, as well as a small turbocharged gasoline unit. The new Kangoo LCV will be offered in three versions, which will differ from each other in terms of wheelbase.
