Nissan is one of the best-known Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) manufacturers in the world and, for years, has also been seen as a pioneer in the electrification of passenger and commercial vehicles. The Nissan LEAF and now discontinued Nissan eNV200 helped to bring electric mobility to the masses, long before anybody had heard of a guy called Elon.
Nissan’s rich history in electric vehicles means it has a significant advantage over rivals when it comes to understanding battery chemistry, charging and driver behaviour. That experience curve also translates into offering today’s customers fantastic reliability and value for money.
Nissan and EVs
Despite such a strong start in the era of electrification, you could say that Nissan has been caught napping in the commercial vehicle sector. The revered eNV200 small van has recently been discontinued and replaced by the Nissan Townstar, which is better in every conceivable way. However, there remain gaps in the medium and large panel van sector; gaps that are quickly being filled by rival manufacturers.
The Nissan Townstar is the company’s latest small electric van, but this is where the current electric range begins and ends. The Townstar uses a 44kWh battery and can offer up to 184 miles of range - that's around 50% more than the eNV200 it replaces. Its space-efficient size makes it the perfect panel van for any trade that needs to carry smaller loads over short distances, such as electricians or domestic plumbers.
The small panel van sector is fiercely competitive, with everybody from Peugeot and its e-Partner to Mercedes-Benz and its newly launched eCitan offering credible alternatives to suit every business budget
