Episode 2: Brecon Beacons NPA & Renault Kangoo

In episode 2 of our new electric van series Andy finds out how a Renault Kangoo is helping the team at the Brecon Beacons National Park.

In this second instalment of our Introduction to Electric Vans series, Andy heads to the Brecon Beacons to find out how electric vans are being used by real people to carry out their day to day jobs.

This Renault Kangoo ZE33 was added to the Brecon Beacons National Park vehicle fleet last year and is used both for educational outreach activities and ground maintenance of the 40 acre site. The Kangoo might be a small, simple, no-frills and functional electric van but it also offers flexibility for seating or extra storage options in the back. It’s a perfect solution for small businesses, trades people and last mile deliveries and, with components from the popular Renault Zoe, seems to be a good safe option for going electric.
