Charging a Renault Kangoo Z.E. 33

The Z.E 33 comes with a battery size of 33kWh and has an official NEDC range of 168 miles.

Charging times will, of course, vary based on the power of the charger; a 7kW home charger, for example, will take around 5 hours to charge from 0% to 100%, providing an approximate range per hour of 34 miles*.

Note: The Renault Kangoo Z.E. 33 has a max charging rate of 7.4kW; this means if you plugged into an 11kW or 22kW charge point, the van would continue to charge at 7.4kW.

Charging Times**:

  • 2.1kW (3-pin plug) = 15h for 0-100%
  • 3.7kW = 9h for 0-100%
  • 11kW (3-Phase) = 5h for 0-100%

*Based on WLTP range

**Charging times are estimates and will vary depending on factors such as the charger in use and temperature of the battery.
