The Kangoo BeBop Concept, unveiled in 2009, foreshadowed Renault’s Electric Vehicle plans for the future with the announcement that 2011, Renault plans to introduce a range of at least four electric vehicles.
Each of the four EVs would share the drivetrain that powered the Kangoo BeBop Concept.
The Kangoo BeBop was proof that practical and affordable electric motoring was on the horizon. With a 60 mile range and an eight hour charge time, Renault conceded that the range would increase and charge times would become shorter within two years. Based on the tried and test Kangoo platform, the BeBop Concept had 140lb ft of torque from standstill and 60bhp.
