NISSAN has unveiled its new Townstar all-electric compact van which follows on from the previous e-NV200.
Priced from £28,400 after the Government grant for low emission LCVs, the Townstar has a range up to 183 miles on a full charge.
Recharging to 80 per cent capacity can be done in 37 minutes and Nissan says that in urban conditions up to 269 miles of zero emission driving is possible.
Depending on the specifications, The Townstar has a payload of between 600 and 800kg and towing capacity of up to 1,500kg.
It also offers between 3.3 to 4.3 cubic metres of cargo carrying capacity - enough to carry two Euro pallets starting from the short wheelbase version.
Allan Newman, LCV product manager at Nissan GB, said: "Offering a fully electric powertrain, practical design and unique Nissan technologies, Townstar is comprehensively equipped to meet customers' ever-changing needs.
"With tougher emissions standards, urban access restrictions, and ever-increasing demand for last-mile delivery, businesses need to find effective and sustainable solutions to remain competitive and optimise their operations. We're confident Townstar will meet their every need."
The van has an aerodynamic design and a powertrain optimised with intelligent energy management and battery thermal cooling.
Delivering 122ps and 245Nm of torque, the Townstar EV's 45kWh battery offers both AC charging (11 kW or 22 kW) or DC CCS quick-charging.
Battery thermal cooling combined with the 22kW AC and 80kW DC CCS charging is standard from Acenta grade onward.
An array of available active and passive safety technologies include Blind Spot Warning, Hands-Free Parking, Active Cruise Control, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Side Wind Assist and Trailer Sway Assist.
Inside, the Townstar EV has more than 20 technology features, including an on-board connectivity service, and it is available with a 10-inch digital instrument panel.
Nissan says the Townstar EV is the most advanced van in its current LCV line-up.
The 100 per cent electric Townstar will also 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 assistance.
In addition, automatic climate control and a heated steering wheel are available. Meanwhile, a heat pump improves both efficiency and comfort in colder temperatures by distributing heat from the battery into the cabin.
Every Nissan LCV comes with an industry-leading five-year or 100,000-mile warranty, and the Townstar EV expands on this with an eight year warranty on the battery state of health up to 70 per cent.
Deliveries are expected to start later in the year.
