Nissan Townstar (2022): At A Glance
The Nissan Townstar is a new small panel van, based on the same mechanical platform as the latest Renault Kangoo and Mercedes-Benz Citan.
The small van replaces the electric e-NV200 and the diesel NV250 in the Nissan van range and is offered with petrol or electric power.
The electric Townstar produces 122PS and 245Nm of torque, while its 44kWh battery covers up to 177 miles on a single charge. The battery can be charged from zero to 80 per cent in 42 minutes when hooked up to a public 75kW DC rapid charger. A full battery charge home wallbox will take around seven hours. The petrol version features a 1.3-litre turbocharged engine that produces 130PS and 240Nm of torque.
Nissan is expected to offer the Townstar in two load lengths - L1 and L2. The largest versions of the van will offer 4.3 cubic metres of load space, which will carry two Euro pallets weighing a total of 800kg. Both the electric and petrol vans will tow 1500kg, says Nissan.
