Nissan has launched its electric Townstar van which it says will provide an efficient solution to help customers adapt to changing emissions regulations, increased urbanisation and the growth of e-commerce.
With a range of 183 miles WLTP Combined – or up to 269 miles on the City Cycle – Townstar EV replaces the e-NV200, Nissan’s previous all-electric compact van and a former UK best-seller.
Delivering 122 PS and 245Nm of torque, the Townstar EV’s 45kWh battery offers both AC charging – 11 kW or 22 kW – 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 from 0.66 tonnes to 0.88 tonnes, and towing capacity of up to 1.65 tonnes.
The Townstar EV offers between 3.3 to 4.3 cubic metres of cargo carrying capacity – enough to carry two Euro pallets starting from the short wheelbase version.
Every Nissan LCV has a five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, and the Townstar EV expands on this with 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.”
