With the LCV market expected to shift rapidly towards electrification, Nissan is ready to help businesses future-proof their operations. This week the Japanese marque presented its all-new electric Townstar to the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham. Alongside the mid-size Primastar and larger Interstar models, the Townstar EV is an innovative electric van that helps customers adapt to changing emissions regulations, increased urbanisation, and the rapid shift towards electrification.
Priced from £30,000 (CV OTR after PiVG calculated as 35% of the base vehicle price) the Townstar EV boasts a cutting-edge electric powertrain that has been optimised with intelligent energy management and battery thermal cooling technology. This advanced system delivers a class-leading zero-emission range of 183 miles WLTP Combined (or up to 269 miles on the City Cycle) making it, say Nissan, one of the most capable and versatile commercial vehicles on the market today.
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 as little as 37 minutes. Battery thermal cooling combined with the 22kW AC and 80kW DC CCS charging is standard from Acenta grade onward.
Every Nissan LCV boasts an industry-leading five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, demonstrating Nissan’s continued commitment to quality. The Townstar EV expands on this offering with an eight-year warranty on the battery state of health up to 70%.
