For this Valentine’s Day, Renault has produced its first animated movie around love and silence of EV vehicles. The Postman tells the romantic and comical story of a postman and his troublesome pursuit to get closer to his crush, because of a very protective noise-sensitive dog.
Until one day, an electric vehicle will change his life.
The film, which features a Renault Kangoo Z.E., promotes the benefits of driving electric vehicles and their silent engines, which offers comfort for both the driver and the surroundings.
Renault Z.E. offers a line-up of 100% electric vehicles and associated services, for both private and business customers. Renault is the European leader in 100% electric passenger and light commercial vehicles.
When Lars, a postman, meets a girl on his daily postal round, he instantly falls for her.
The only problem? His noisy vehicle keeps disturbing her small-but-angry dog, who blocks him from getting anywhere near to his new crush.
The Postman endures multiple comical attacks from the possessive dog, until finally, he is given a set of keys to a brand-new Renault Kangoo Z.E., allowing him to silently approach his crush, Karen.
Everything starts with an electric moment!
