Commercial vehicle customers looking to future-proof their business operations and transition to zero-emission motoring have been turning in ever-increasing numbers to the new electric Nissan Townstar van, according to the manufacturer.

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.”

The Townstar EV features an efficient, aerodynamic design and a powertrain optimised with intelligent energy management and battery thermal cooling. Delivering 122PS 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 per cent to 80 per cent in as little as 37 minutes. Battery thermal cooling combined with the 22kW AC and 80kW DC CCS charging is standard from Acenta grade onward.

It 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.

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

The award-winning, 100 per cent electric Townstar also introduces Nissan’s ProPilot Assist advanced driving assistance system to the LCV line-up, as well as Nissan’s unique Intelligent Around View Monitor (AVM).

Allan Newman added: “Our electrification expertise and leadership in the small LCV segment has been a critical component in the development of this version of the Townstar. ‘We’re confident that its high level of advanced safety features, versatile configurations and practical capabilities suit the future of sustainable business operations.”

Every Nissan LCV includes a five-year or 100,000-mile warranty and includes roadside assistance for the duration. The Townstar EV expands on this offering with an eight-year warranty on the battery state of health up to 70 per cent.
