Euro EV Truck, Not for the US


59 horsepower, 167 pound feet of torque, 22 kilowatt battery pack, and a 100 mile range a Ford F150 this is not. Yet as I have stated in other forums and auto threads, I truly believe inner city folks as well as city governments would love to have a true mini pickup, not a mid or full size, but a true mini pickup truck that seats 2 people and can still carry a decent amount of weight. In this case, 1,400 pounds.

Kolle, a conversion company in France is taking the Renault Kangoo Z.E. electric delivery van and converting it into a pickup truck. Clearly you still have reminders that this was more than a truck by the high sides, stagecoach doors in back and tall tail lights. The conversion costs $16,400 US based on current exchange rates.

Since Renault does not sell in the US, you will not see this little EV mini truck here, but the thoughts of taking the Nissan e-NV200 electric minivan and converting it does ring a decent idea. Makes one wonder if GM would consider doing this to their city express minivan which is from Nissan. Possible decent way to grow the EV segment by taking the production line of Nissan / Chevrolet minivans and adding to the EV van offering with an EV mini truck offering.
