The electric version of the Nissan Townstar van is being produced in Europe, as stated by Nissan in the latest days. The Townstar EV builds on the success of the e-NV200. Manufactured on a shared CMF-C platform, the new vehicle will be manufactured at the Alliance centre of excellence for small vans in Maubeuge, France.
The fully electric version of the all-new Townstar EV features a powertrain optimised with intelligent energy management and battery thermal cooling. Owing to its aerodynamic design and the efficiencies it creates, the Townstar EV is able to achieve a superior range autonomy of up to 300 km (WLTP cycle). Delivering 122 PS and 245 Nm of torque, the Townstar EV’s 45 kWh battery can accept AC charging (11 kW or 22 kW) or DC quick charging (CCS format). The latter of which enables users to charge the battery from 15% to 80% in as little as 37 minutes.
Nissan Townstar: the electric van
The 100% electric Townstar will introduce Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist advanced driving assistance system to the LCV line-up. This technology, along with Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor (AVM), provides drivers with extra support. In addition, and for improved cabin comfort, a heated steering wheel, windscreen and front seats are available.
“Coinciding with World EV Day, the start of production of our all-new Townstar EV is designed to meet the needs of our customers and increasing demand for sustainable powertrain solutions. The class-leading range of our fully electric Townstar will help even more LCV owners discover the benefits of electrification while supporting the evolving environmental landscape of European cities,” said Emmanuelle Serazin, LCV & Corporate Sales Director, Nissan Europe. “Our electrification expertise and leadership in the e-LCV segment has been a critical component in the development of the fully electric version of the Townstar”.
