The latest EV car from Renault is named Kangoo Maxi ZE and is to be unveiled in the up coming Geneva show this year. The car is supposed to go on sale in the autumn of 2011. The model is available in the two seater or five seater options. The two seater option is more of an enclosed cargo carrying vehicle and the five seater car is made for the family and is a comfortable auto for transporting all the family members together.

The car has a carrying capacity of four point six cubic metres or one hundred and sixty two cubic feet. The 5 seat version of the car installs foldable rear bench which can be easily folded back on the floor to considerably increase the cargo area. The car is fitted with electric motor that can deliver sixty horse power. The electric motor is ably suited to produce a maximum torque of 226 Newton-metre or 166 Pound-feet. The electric motor depends on the 22 KWh Li-ion battery bank.

The battery bank is smartly placed below the floor of the car. The time taken for fully recharging the battery bank takes almost six to eight hours. The estimated cost of the full recharge is one and half Euro or two 2.05 US Dollars. Keeping with the tradition of Renault, the manufacturer is offering sale or lease option for this EV car model as well. According to the statistics available from Renault, the car maintenance charge is similar to a conventional car. However, as the car runs a distance more than fifteen thousand kilometres, the maintenance cost of the EV car further reduces in comparison to the conventional cars.
