The Triumph of the All-New Nissan Townstar: Dominating the 2024 What Van? Awards

The all-new Nissan Townstar has indisputably made its mark on the automotive industry, clinching not one, but two prestigious accolades at the 2024 What Van? Awards. In a fiercely competitive field, the Nissan Townstar emerged victorious, being hailed as the 'Compact Van of the Year' and its Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) variant earning the esteemed 'Electric Van of the Year' title.

The Nissan Townstar's Predecessor

The all-new Nissan Townstar has been a resounding success since its inception, following in the footsteps of its hugely successful predecessor, the e-NV200. The Nissan Townstar new model is available with petrol or electric powertrain options, making it a perfect fit for businesses looking to future-proof their operations and embrace the shift towards electrification.

Francesco Russiello, LCV category manager at Nissan GB, said: "We at Nissan are fully aware of what a splendid vehicle the Nissan Townstar is. Receiving official recognition at the respected What Van? Awards is truly delightful. We are particularly thrilled with our 'Electric Van of the Year' triumph, where the Townstar would have been competing with vehicles of various shapes and sizes from a wide array of manufacturers."

Environmental Considerations and Business Needs

With stricter emission standards, urban access restrictions and the growing demand for last-mile delivery, businesses of all sizes need to find efficient and sustainable solutions to remain competitive and optimise their operations. The all-new Nissan Townstar is the perfect solution to these challenges.

Townstar's Carrying Capabilities

When it comes to carrying capabilities, the all-new Nissan Townstar provides a generous load space of 3.3m3 (L1) or 4.3m3 (L2), with a payload capacity of up to 770kg. Additionally, it boasts a maximum braked towing capacity of 1,500kg.

Nissan's Commitment to Quality

The van also serves as a testament to Nissan's commitment to delivering quality and reassurance. Owners across the manufacturer's LCV range benefit from an industry-leading, pan-European five-year or 100,000-mile warranty and 5-year roadside assistance. The Nissan Townstar EV version comes with an additional eight-year or 100,000-mile battery warranty.

Townstar EV's Cutting-Edge Powertrain

The Nissan Townstar EV features a state-of-the-art electric powertrain, optimised with intelligent energy management and battery thermal cooling technology. This advanced system in the Nissan Townstar delivers a class-leading zero-emission range of 183 miles WLTP Combined (or up to 269 miles on the City Cycle), making the Nissan Townstar one of the most capable and versatile commercial vehicles in the market.

Charging Capabilities of the NissanTownstar EV

The Nissan Townstar EV's 45kWh battery offers both AC charging (up to 22kW) or 80kW DC CCS quick-charging. The latter enables users to charge the battery from 15% to 80% in as little as 37 minutes.


The all-new Nissan Townstar is truly a game-changer in the compact van segment. Its dual triumph at the 2024 What Van? Awards are a testament to Nissan's unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and sustainability.
