Nissan has unveiled its all-new Townstar van – due to reach showrooms in 2022. The Townstar replaces the electric e-NV200 and the diesel NV250 and will rival the Ford Transit Connect and Peugeot Partner in the small van category.
Unlike other small vans, the Nissan Townstar will come in petrol or electric power only. The 44Wh battery covers up to 177 miles on a single charge – that’s 43% better than the old e-NV200! Charging from zero to 80% happens in as little as 42 minutes when using a rapid charger.
When it comes to carrying capacity, both the petrol and the electric versions will be able to carry a maximum payload of 800kg. Other features include automatic city braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, plus a 360-degree parking camera. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also be available, allowing the driver to pair their mobile phone with the touchscreen display.
