- Nissan Townstar L2 (long wheelbase) available in Europe with improved cargo capacity, increased length and wider sliding door for easier side access
- Available in both 100% electric and petrol powertrains
- The perfect tool to support growing small and medium-sized businesses
Paris, FRANCE – Nissan introduces the all-new Nissan Townstar Van L2 (long wheelbase) an exceptional addition to its successful Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) line-up in Europe.
With increased cargo capacity and length likened to that of a mid-size van, the Nissan Townstar Van L2 redefines the concept of a small van to offer a new experience and versatility. Boasting all the innovative features of the popular Townstar Van, the new model goes a step further to meet the evolving needs of small and medium enterprise (SME) owners, fleet companies and municipalities who require a versatile and efficient transportation solution.
"Poised by the success of the Nissan Townstar Van, we decided to innovate and explore to go even further. With a significantly higher cargo capacity, remarkable payload, impressive towing capacity and increased length, the Townstar L2 has most of the traits of a mid-sized EV van – but at a small van price! This will appeal hugely to SME customers, municipalities and beyond", said Nicolas Tschann, Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) Director, Nissan Europe.
The Nissan Townstar Van L2 boasts an increased length of 4910mm – close to that of a mid-sized van. This length allows for a wider side door of 831mm, ensuring customer can load one Euro pallet and giving a greater versatility in terms of loading options, unlike other competitors.
This increased length, combined with its loading capabilities, set it apart from other small vans in the market. The cargo capacity is an impressive 4.3m³-4.9m³*, representing a significant increase vs the regular Townstar that offers 3.3m³-3.9m³, while still matching the two Euro pallet capabilities and more additional space. Moreover, the payload of this new variant is 800kg, thanks to the revised rear suspension, while keeping the 1,500kg towing capacity.
The Townstar L2 comes with a 45kWh battery that allows both AC (11/22 kW) or DC charging; 245Nm of torque and 90kW motor. The zero-emission nature of the model also allows drivers to comply with potential or existing emissions restrictions legislation introduced for urban areas across the market.
Its total combined range of up to 275km is still more than enough for customers to conduct their business without constantly having to recharge. However, with its urban cycle range of up to 389 kilometres, the electric Townstar Van L2 delivers a great advantage for the needs of city-based SMEs.
As Nissan further accelerates towards Ambition 2030 and its long-term vision for empowering mobility and beyond, the electric version of the Nissan Townstar Van L2 embodies Nissan's continued commitment to electrification. With roughly 50% of the Small Van segment expected to be electric by the end of the decade, the Nissan Townstar EV Van L2 has been introduced in anticipation of meeting the demands of an ever-growing segment.
The Townstar Van L2 is also equipped with an array of active and passive safety features common in most Nissan models, designed to give drivers and passengers extra peace of mind. Such features include Blind Spot Warning, ProPILOT and – unique in the segment to Nissan – Intelligent Around View Monitor.
Moreover, with its industry-leading 5 year/160,000km warranty and 8-year battery warranty, the Townstar Van L2 continues Nissan's commitment to quality and to putting its customers first.
