Nissan will introduce by next summer its electric vehicle line-up for the European market. Six electric vehicles, between passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, including the new electric Townstar, already launched on a global scale in September 2021.
Nissan to go all electric very soon
Following the decision to not invest in Euro 7 for passenger cars, Nissan will not introduce any new pure internal combustion engine-powered passenger cars in Europe from 2023. Taking bold steps to ensure it will deliver a new era of mobility, Nissan expects 75% of its sales mix in the region to be electrified by FY2026, with the ambition to reach 100% by the end of the decade. This announcement plays a leading role in the delivery of Ambition 2030, the company’s long-term vision for empowering mobility and beyond.
«Nissan is charging towards an electrified future, with Europe leading the way. We have established a clear direction through Ambition 2030 and with our new electrified line-up we are truly paving the way to a sustainable future», said Guillaume Cartier, Chairperson, Nissan Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and Oceania Region. «Leveraging our global presence and Alliance partnerships (with Renault and Mitsubishi, ed.), this is a landmark moment for Nissan in Europe with the arrival of our most comprehensive product offering to date. We have harnessed our disruptive nature and our electric expertise to deliver a suite of electrified powertrain technologies that meet the needs of our customers, with zero compromise on excitement».
The all-new Townstar with 300 km range
So, alongside the full range of passenger cars, the all-new Townstar is designed to be «a reliable, efficient and sustainable business partner, optimised to meet customers’ ever-changing needs». Leveraging synergies with an Alliance platform, the model has been designed with an intelligent blend of efficiency and practicality. Offered with a fully electric powertrain delivering 300 km of range under the WLTP combined cycle, as well as a suite of 20+ technology features, the all-new Townstar is ideal for last-mile deliveries. This next generation compact van helps to future-proof sustainable business operations and accelerate the transition towards electrification.
