Nissan reveals its all-new Townstar van

Nissan has revealed its next generation of compact van, the all-new Townstar.

A refined 1.3-litre petrol engine option will be available, fully compliant with the latest Euro 6d-Full emissions regulations, which produces 130HP and 240Nm of torque, offering power and efficiency in equal measure.

Alternatively, the fully electric version of the all-new Townstar boasts an enhanced 44kWh battery, advanced technology and low running costs.

It will combine intelligent energy management and effective battery thermal cooling in one optimised package.

The new van will offer 245Nm of torque and 177 miles of range (pending homologation) – a 43% improvement over the outgoing e-NV200.

Emmanuelle Serazin of Nissan Europe said: “Offering two efficient powertrain solutions, ergonomic design and unique technologies, the all-new 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 large and small need to find effective and sustainable solutions to remain competitive and optimise their operations.”

With a fully electric version in addition to a fuel-powered option, the new range builds on the success of the Nissan e-NV200.

Interior and exterior design

Built on the Alliance CMF-C platform, the all-new Townstar has been built from the ground up with quality and functionality in mind.

It will bear the new Nissan brand logo, making it the first European model to be produced with it and the latest to be introduced under the Nissan NEXT transformation plan, which prioritizes sustainable growth and profitability across the company’s global operations.

From refined seat and door trims to a modern centre console and instrument panel finish, the all-new Townstar’s cabin welcomes customers with passenger-car-like comfort.

The fully electric all-new Townstar will reflect aesthetic cues of Ariya, including signature standard LED headlamps and an aerodynamic front shield integrating an intricate Kumiko pattern and a fresh V-motion design with daytime running lamps.

Likewise, the petrol version of the all-new Townstar stands out with a sharp and dynamic look, thanks to its interlock grille.

It will also integrate “air-curtains”, which have been integrated to optimise airflow around the front bumper and front wheels, reducing drag and optimizing autonomy and fuel consumption.

Incorporating 20+ cutting-edge technologies and versatile configurations, this new van provides customers with confidence and connectivity

Load space

Featuring up to 4.3m3 of cargo space, the new compact van can transport two Euro pallets and up to 800kg of cargo with ease, while the powerful powertrains allow the vehicle to offer a 1,500kg towing capacity, adapting to each businesses’ specific requirements.

The cargo area integrates large sliding doors on the side which facilitate unloading the van and the possibility to have 60/40 French doors with 180 degree opening at the rear.

It also includes smart storage solutions and a dedicated space for on-board office tools.

The all-new Townstar brings a comprehensive and competitive offering for the compact van segment with both petrol and fully electric powertrain options.

Safety and infotainment

With a broad range of safety technologies and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as Side Wind Assist and Trailer Sway Assist, the all-new Townstar provides a reassuring and confident experience behind the wheel.

Intelligent Emergency Braking featuring Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection and Junction Assist, as well as Hands-Free Parking and Intelligent Cruise Control puts Townstar at the forefront of the category.

Nissan is integrating the Around View Monitor (AVM) for the first time in the compact van segment, democratising this cutting-edge technology. Using a suite of cameras, the system displays a 360-degree overview of the area around the vehicle, providing drivers with full peace of mind when parking in the city.

Customers of the fully electric all-new Townstar will also enjoy the innovative ProPILOT advanced driver assistance system.

Supporting motorists with highway driving, the feature allows the vehicle to automatically slow to a full stop and accelerate by following the vehicle ahead, as well as keeping it centred in the lane – even around a gentle curve.

Convenient connectivity features such as E-Call, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and wireless phone charging will be available across the range from launch, with further enhanced Connected Services available from the launch of the fully electric version.

These connected services will be presented via an 8-inch touchscreen, which is linked to a 10-inch digital combimeter in front of the driver in the fully electric all-new Townstar.

Five-year warranty

Nissan reaffirms its commitment to providing quality and reassurance, with owners across the Nissan LCV range benefitting from the industry-leading, pan-European 5-Year or 100,000-mile warranty, in addition to the eight-year or 100,000-mile battery warranty for the EV version.

This includes bumper-to-bumper protection, paintwork guarantee, genuine parts and accessories and roadside assistance – providing comprehensive cover for extra peace of mind.
