This is the all-new electric Nissan Townstar which the manufacturer says is an ideal choice for commercial vehicle operators wanting to future-proof their business.
It’s also a boon for firms looking to transition to zero emissions motoring.
The stylish van is priced from £28,400 and the battery offers a range of 183 miles – or, when using the ‘city cycle’ up to 269 miles.
Nissan Townstar builds on the success of the Nissan e-NV200
The new van is the latest electrified addition to the firm’s line-up and builds on the success of the Nissan e-NV200 which was the firm’s previous all-electric compact van and a popular choice in the UK.
The Townstar delivers 122 PS with torque of 245Nm from the 45kWh battery which is capable of quick charging and will achieve 80% of capacity in just 37 minutes.
The van’s payload ranges from 600kg to 100kg, and it has a towing capacity of up to 1,500 kg.
The load bay ranges from 3.3 to 4.3 m³ – that’s enough for two Euro pallets in the short wheelbase guise.
New electric van from Nissan
Equipment for the new electric van from Nissan includes a range of passive and active safety technologies including intelligent emergency braking, active cruise control, hands-free parking and blind spot warning.
The new model also features trailer sway assist and side wind assist.
The styling for the EV is distinctive and fresh with a well-designed cabin and drivers get a 10.0-inch digital display and various connected services.
Nissan Townstar gets advanced driving assistance system
The all-electric offering features Pro-pilot Assist which is Nissan’s advanced driving assistance system which many drivers and firms will find useful.
That’s because it offers an intelligent around-view to monitor the van to help keep it and the occupants safe.
The Nissan Townstar comes with a 100,000-mile or five-year warranty and the battery has an eight-year warranty for a state of health of up to 70%.
