The Renault Kangoo Z.E.

The Kangoo is a small work van that is sold in France, but Kolle has come out with a conversion for the van turning it into a ute-like beauty. I imagine that the Santa Cruz would be going after a similar customer except the Santa Cruz has much more design to it.

The Kangoo ZE is also an electric vehicle producing zero emisions. It has 59 HP with 226 Nm of torque. The range comes in at 170 km, which isn't bad but also isn't amazing.

I wonder if the Santa Cruz may also try for a EV or hybrid model. And I also see that the Kangoo isn't sold in the US, which may also mean that the Santa CRuz won't be as well.

I completely disagree with you, the crossover between the two isn't as simple as "much more design". There's far more to it than that.

That's like saying a Dodge Caravan Cargo Van serves a similar customer as it's Passenger version.

Sure the Kangoo is more utilitarian, but they are definitely in the same circle I would say. At least worth mentioning since its not like this type of vehicle has many examples of iit floating around these days.

Aside from both having a bed, what exactly makes them belong in the same circle?

Odd looking Renault to say the least.. Is there a cover or top for the back?

Cheers

doesn't even look like there's anywhere a cover would go
might just be an open bed for good.

The most logical competition for the Santa Cruz would be the Chevy Montana (Brazil/Mexico)




and the Fiat Strada (Europe/SA)

This doesn't come from Renault like this. Its an aftermarket custom conversion where they cut the roof off of the van. That's why the tail lamps are in such an odd location. That's where they are mounted on the van.

Ahh I see. I was wondering why the tail light were in such an odd looking position. That's why a thought a canvas clipped onto the two out of place edges. Didn't really see much design in it.

Thanks

At least we know chevrolet has a platform here they can work on
These are far more up to par with what the Santa Cruz is like and who it targets.
