Nissan Townstar Electric prices from £29,945

The Nissan Townstar Electric is the successor to the Nissan e-NV200 electric van, and is priced from £29,945, with short or long wheelbase variants.

The Townstar compact van is also available as a petrol model, priced from £19,475 for SWB and £20,775 for LWB versions.

The short-wheelbase electric Townstar equipped with a 45kWh battery has a range of up to 183 miles WLTP combined or up to 269 miles in the city cycle.

The Townstar provides a payload of up to 600kg (SWB) or 800kg (LWB), with a maximum braked towing capacity of 1,500kg. The Nissan e-NV200 is rated to a maximum payload of 705kg following the update to the 40kWh battery pack in 2018. 

The line-up is comprised of four trim levels: Visia, Acenta, Tekna and Tekna+.

Electric versions of the Townstar are priced from £29,945 and will come with an 11kW (Visia grade) or 22kW AC (Acenta grade on) on-board charging system which will be class-leading in its segment. 

As with its e-NV200 predecessor, there will also be a DC rapid charging connector standard from Acenta grade, which can recharge the battery from 0% to 80% in a little over 40 minutes.

Prices for all-electric short-wheelbase examples range upwards to £34,845 for a Tekna+ model. The long-wheelbase all-electric Townstar varies in price from £31,245 (Visia) to £35,845 (Tekna+).

The Townstar brings a suite of 20+ technologies to the compact van segment and will feature a broad range of safety technologies and advanced driver assistance features such as Intelligent Emergency Braking, Hands-Free Parking, Intelligent Cruise Control and Around View Monitor (AVM), exclusive to Nissan, putting it at the forefront of its category.

There’s a pan-European five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, in addition to the eight-year or 100,000 miles battery warranty for the EV version.

The official start of sales will be 1st October for the petrol version and 1st December for the EV version, and pre-orders will open from 22nd August. All pricing excludes VAT, FRF and PiVG.
