Because if there’s one type of car that doesn’t lend itself well to electrification, it’s this type of machine! The Kangoo MPV (Renault calls it Combispace) has sold more than 4.4 million units in fifty countries over the last 25 years and has revolutionized the automotive world by offering interior space, load capacity and the functionality of a van from which it is derived. has combined with the car-specific properties (comfort, equipment).
