We’ve got a national reputation for the breath and quality of the refrigerated vehicles we stock here at CoolKit, and recently we’ve noticed that our Renault Kangoo refrigerated vehicles are growing increasingly popular with customers. There’s no surprise there, really, as the Kangoo has plenty of fantastic qualities that make it highly appealing to fleet operators, especially small businesses and SMEs. We’ve summed up some of its main selling points here, and why so many are considering it as an option to expand their business fleets.
CoolKit has collaborated before with Renault UK, the manufacturer of the Renault Kangoo, and we can personally attest to the qualities that have made it one of the country’s most popular commercial vans. The Renault Kangoo comes in three trims, depending on your preferences – Business, Business+ and Premier Edition, and during its manufacture, Renault engineers have made a notable effort to reduce its active emissions reduction, while retaining its efficient, versatile nature. All told, Renault say that the Kangoo can achieve a fuel economy of up to 65.7mpg, making it a particularly attractive option for small businesses.
This operational efficiency also comes packaged with a number of useful driver comfort features, too, such as a height adjustable steering wheel and dashboard storage compartment. There’s also a front charging socket for mobile devices, and the vehicle also boasts DAB radio, bluetooth and USB connectivity (these features even come as standard on Business+). And of course, all the Renault Kangoo fridge vans we stock here at CoolKit are built to the same high standards as the rest of our vehicles, right down to the powerful refrigeration unit, the hygienic and waterproof interior, and the ultra-bright lighting fitted within the load space. Plus, there’s one more thing which distinguishes it from similar refrigerated vehicles…
Part of our collaborations with Renault UK revolve around the 100% electric version of the Renault Kangoo, which won Best Green Van at the Business Van of the Year Awards. Not long afterwards, a model of the Kangoo fitted with one of our award-winning conversions was put on display at that year’s Commercial Vehicle Show, at the Birmingham NEC. This type of electrified refrigerated vehicle offers a number of new and exciting possibilities to modern business owners, including its immunity to the Ultra Low Emissions Zone, which is due to come in to effect in London in the next few weeks.
As we covered in the linked post, experts think that it has the potential to hit smaller businesses hardest, especially those who find themselves frequently moving through London. And with further similar initiatives already being proposed for other cities throughout the UK, such as Birmingham, Leeds and Nottingham, rising sales of electrified fridge and freezer vans are predicted as businesses look to protect themselves from the charges that may otherwise result. The Renault Kangoo has already given business owners an excellent demonstration of what they can achieve, and it doesn’t hurt that it and other electrified vehicles are proving especially popular with low mileage users, too.
As an added bonus, in today’s environmentally conscious times, making your fleet of refrigerated vehicles greener is an excellent way to demonstrate your Corporate Social Responsibility, which may give you a vital edge over your competitors when it comes to winning clients and attracting new business.
Of course, the Renault Kangoo is just one of a wide range of fridge vans and freezer vans we’ve got in stock here at CoolKit. You can look through our full range of Renault vehicles here, or if you need any help or advice, feel free to give our friendly sales team a call on 0808 278 4498!
