The Kangoo ZE has a number of advantages over a petrol or diesel vehicle. Firstly, it’s quiet. It also has excellent linear acceleration thanks to the 100% torque generated from standstill from its electric motor (making it feel much quicker than the official figures suggest). It has no gears or clutch, meaning that it’s extremely easy to drive, especially in urban areas. Of course it has zero-tailpipe emissions at all times, obviously including when stopped in the many traffic jams in cities – which is in contrast to most other vehicles which will continue to pump out pollution. Even modern cars with stop-start systems have an uncivilised mechanical intervention to get you moving again, something that’s certainly not a feature of the refined Kangoo ZE powertrain.
