Environmental tourist attraction the Eden Project has taken delivery of 14 Renault Kangoo Z.E electric vans.

Split between van and maxi crew van cab derivatives, the Kangoo Z.E.s replace existing Renault EVs at the site, and will work alongside electric Zoe cars and Twizy quadricycles.

The new vans will be used by the attraction’s maintenance, horticulture, security, live programming and catering teams. Some will also be assigned to help with the provision of on-site medical support.

Eden Project managing director Rita Broe said: “We’re very pleased with our continuing partnership with Renault and it’s great to welcome these new electric vehicles into the Eden fleet.

“The electric Renaults are the backbone of the Eden Project, playing a vital role in the operations of nearly every team here.

“The beautiful fleet of vehicles suits our purposes perfectly, doing everything we need them to do while having minimal impact on the environment and communicating important messages about sustainability to our visitors.”

Renault UK marketing director Adam Wood said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Eden Project.

“As a manufacturer that is passionate about zero tailpipe emissions vehicles and at the forefront of developing EV technology, it’s very rewarding to work alongside such a renowned voice for sustainability and play a key role in helping the Eden Project as they promote the many attributes of electric vehicles to thousands of visitors each year.”
