Nissan Townstar long wheelbase added to line-up

July 24, 2023

Nissan has unveiled the new Nissan Townstar Van L2 (long wheelbase) model, the latest addition to its light commercial vehicle (LCV) lineup in Europe.

The new model caters to the evolving needs of SME owners and fleets with an extended length of 4910mm. This makes it nearly comparable to the size of a mid-sized van. The additional length allows for a wider side door of 831mm, enabling customers to load one Euro pallet and providing greater loading options compared to competitors.

Cargo capacity for the Townstar Van L2 is an impressive 4.3m³ up by one cubic metre from the L1 model's capacity of 3.3m³.

The van can still accommodate two Euro pallets while offering additional space. Moreover, the new model has a payload capacity of up to 800kg, thanks to revised rear suspension, and maintains a maximum towing capacity of 1,500kg.

The Townstar Van L2 is available in both electric and internal combustion engine (ICE) versions.

The Nissan Townstar Electric variant offers an urban cycle range of up to 242 miles and a total combined range of up to 171 miles.

It comes with a 45kWh battery that allows for AC (11/22 kW) or DC charging (up to 80kW) and has a 90kW motor with 245Nm of torque.

The van is equipped with a number of safety features common in Nissan models, including Blind Spot Warning, ProPILOT, and the unique-to-segment Intelligent Around View Monitor giving a 360-degree view of the van.

Pre-orders for both the EV and ICE versions of the all-new Nissan Townstar Van L2 are now open, with basic list prices starting from £21,625 for the ICE version and £33,945 for the electric van.

Additionally, Nissan offers a five-year/100,000-mile warranty and an 8-year battery warranty.

The Nissan Townstar and Nissan Townstar Electric are related to the Renault Kangoo and the Renault Kangoo E-Tech, as well as the Mercedes-Benz Citan and the Mercedes-Benz eCitan.
