Nissan has revealed an updated van range as part of a rebranding of its commercial vehicles.
Previously the brand’s vans were named numerically, but they’ve now reverted to a more conventional naming structure.
Kicking off the range is the new Townstar, a brand new model that replaces the NV250. Based on the latest Renault Kangoo, it will be available with both petrol power and as an EV, with the latter promising an electric range of up to 177 miles thanks to its 44kWh battery. It’s also fitted with an impressive range of driver assistance technologies, while inside it gets a new eight-inch touchscreen and 10-inch digital dial system.
In the middle of Nissan’s commercial range is the Primastar – the new name for the NV300. Alongside the rebranding, though, it also gets refreshed styling thanks to a new ‘interlock’ grille, LED headlights and optional 17-inch alloy wheels. It also benefits from additional driver assistance technology, with the introduction of features like adaptive cruise control, blid spot monitoring and traffic sign recognition.
The largest of Nissan’s vans is the Interstar, which is the new name for the NV400. This receives updated engines along with new safety features like blind spot warning and automatic high beam assist. A variety of versions will be offered, including standard van configurations and platform and chassis cabs for extended uses.
Emmanuelle Serazin, LCV & corporate sales director, Nissan Europe, said: ‘By introducing the all-star LCV line-up, Nissan will continue to support business owners, today and for years to come. With versatile conversion options the refreshed offering provides a solution to many business challenges.
“From the large tailor-made Interstar van, to the versatile and convenient mid-size Primastar and compact, innovative all-new Townstar, we’re listening to our customers and remain committed to addressing their evolving needs.”
Prices for the updated Nissan van range are expected shortly, with all versions coming with a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty as standard.
