Renault Kangoo, a Japanese passion

The Kangoo quickly became a success in the MPV segment when it launched 25 years ago. With its unique and practical design, featuring rear sliding doors for the first time, the Kangoo has gone on to sell over 4.4 million units in 50 countries around the world.

Of all the countries that sell Kangoo, Japan is a country that celebrates it in the most original way. The local craze for this vehicle quickly grew and, in 2009, fans decided to create a gathering to share their passion for the French car with as many people as possible.

Now in its 14th year, the Kangoo Jamboree is the biggest gathering of Renault Kangoo cars in the world.

This year, more than 5,000 visitors came to see the nearly 2,000 Kangoo models on show, and to witness the presentation of the new Renault Grand Kangoo and the new Urban grey local limited series.

The launch of this new edition was made official by the President of Renault Japan, Mr Junpei OGAWA, and the Mayor of the town of Yamanaka-ko, in the presence of Heinz-Jürgen LÖW, SVP, Renault LCV, Thierry Plantegenest, Sales & Marketing Director, Renault LCV and Florent PICHEREAU, Kangoo Product launch Manager, Renault LCV.

At this occasion, new Renault Grand Kangoo and the new “Urban grey” limited series specifically developed for Japan were revealed to the public.

“It is an honour for me to take part in the 2023 Kangoo Jamboree and to reveal the New Renault Grand Kangoo to the Japanese public for the first time.

I would like to thank all the fans who are taking part in this event and who are sharing their passion for Kangoo and the values of this vehicle: family, modularity, and innovation.

I’m convinced that the 3rd generation will be just as popular as its predecessors and that we’ll continue to celebrate this vehicle at the Kangoo Jamboree!”

Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Renault brand SVP Light Commercial Vehicles
