Nissan has launched the electric Townstar van as successor to its e-NV200 electric compact van. With a range of 183 miles WLTP Combined – or up to 269 miles on the City Cycle – the Townstar EV has between 3.3 to 4.3 cubic metres of cargo carrying capacity – enough to carry two Euro pallets starting from the short wheelbase version.

Delivering 122 PS and 245Nm of torque, the Townstar EV’s 45kWh battery offers both AC charging – 11kW or 22kW – or DC CCS quick-charging, the latter of which enables users to charge the battery from 15% to 80% in 37 minutes.

Battery thermal cooling combined with the 22kW AC and 80kW DC CCS charging is standard from Acenta grade onward.

Depending on the specifications, other features include a payload of between 600 and 800kg and towing capacity of up to 1,500kg.

An array of available active and passive safety technologies include Blind Spot Warning, Hands-Free Parking, Active Cruise Control, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Side Wind Assist and Trailer Sway Assist.

The Townstar EV also has an eight-year warranty on the battery state of health up to 70%.

Allan Newman, LCV Product Manager at Nissan GB, said, “Offering a fully electric powertrain, practical design and unique Nissan technologies, Townstar is comprehensively equipped to meet customers’ ever-changing needs.

“With tougher emissions standards, urban access restrictions, and ever-increasing demand for last-mile delivery, businesses need to find effective and sustainable solutions to remain competitive and optimise their operations.

“We’re confident Townstar will meet their every need.”
