Playing with build configuration

All prices are on the road with VAT and include the Plug in Van Grant. The PIVG is 20% of the basic on the road price, not including any option extras.

Kangoo Van Z.E. 16,690.40
719 Carmen Red 0.00
Interior Side Door Panel 96.00
Swivelling Bulkhead 210.00
Folding Front Passenger Seat 60.00
Airbag Front Passenger 222.00
Rear Doors Glazed with rear wiper 180.00
Additional Heating Unit 600
Parking Sensors Rear 240.00
2x20W Radio CD 120.00
Pollen Filter 0.00

18,418.40

We don't want the folding passenger seat, but it is the only way to get a grill bulkhead and rear windows. A solid bulkhead is standard. Need to be able to see the dogs and out the rear windows.

The only way to get a standard passenger seat and a grill bulkhead is to order a crew van or crew van cab. The Crew Van Cab has folding rear seats with a nifty bulkhead that moves forward when you fold the seats.



Or

Kangoo Maxi Crew Van CAB Z.E. 19,168.40
719 Carmen Red 0.00
Interior Side Door Panel 0.00
Airbag Front Passenger 222.00
Rear Doors Glazed with rear wiper 0.00
Additional Heating Unit 600
2x20W Radio CD 120.00
Parking Sensors Rear 240.00
Pollen Filter 0.00

20350.40

The Crew Van with a fixed bulkhead is 396 less. Not worth the savings, since we'd have the seats folded most of the time.



Battery Hire 9,000/miles year 74.40 Almost identical to our fuel savings.

Renault isn't offering any discount but there is 8.1% APR purchase finance.

A similarly configured VW Caddy would be 18,000 to 20,000. Debbie and I both agree while it is a better van than the Berlingo/Partner, it isn't worth the price. That's for a standard van, not a crew van. Yes, The Kangoo Z.E. is less expensive than a Caddy with the 102hp diesel. The Z.E. is nicer to drive too.

The local Citreon dealer will give about 2200 off a Nemo or Berlingo.

I can get 34% (5,938) off a high spec Peugeot Partner and almost as much off a Bipper. That puts a Partner on the road for 12,406 and a Bipper on the road for about 10,000. No incentive finance at those prices. I can get 11% or 12% APR from Lloyds



Makes it hard to justify spending 18,410 for a Kangoo Z.E. and that doesn't include the charger.

Still have to test drive a Kangoo Diesel. Might try and do that later this month. The Mercedes Citan launches in January. We are going to wait at least until the prices are out for the Citan.
