Nissan has refreshed and rebranded its LCV line-up, resulting in a new three-model line-up to meet changing customer demands.
The arrival of the newly revealed Townstar compact van, which will be available in both petrol and electric form to replace the NV250 and the electric e-NV200, has sparked the changes. The Primastar, which replaces the NV300 as the brand's mid-size option, sits above it, while the NV400, which sits at the top of the range, has been updated as the Interstar.
According to Nissan, the new line-up will provide a product range that provides efficient mobility solutions, with business customers at the centre of the approach.
“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,” said Emmanuelle Serazin, LCV & corporate sales director, Nissan Europe.
With the LCV market expected to rapidly shift towards electrification, Nissan said its reimagined LCV line-up, bolstered by the newly revealed Townstar, is ready to help businesses future-proof their operations. The new compact van features the latest Nissan design cues, including the new logo, and technology, in addition to a choice of petrol or fully electric powertrains.
The renamed Primastar has been significantly upgraded for customers looking for a mid-size van. The new interlock grille, LED headlamps, and optional 17-inch alloy wheels give it a fresh new look. It also has new advanced driver assistance systems like Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Intelligent Emergency Braking.
The Primastar also has a selection of Euro 6d-compliant engines with manual or dual-clutch automatic transmissions.
The updated Interstar also receives an expanded engine line-up with seven power outputs ranging from the newly introduced 110hp to 180hp, all based on the existing 2.3-litre engine. It also introduces new advanced driving assistance systems like Blind Spot Warning and Automatic High/Low headlights beam. Panel vans, chassis cabs, single and double cabins, and platform cabs are among the models available, as are factory conversions such as crew van, drop side cab, and tipper.
All models in the refreshed Nissan line-up come with a five-year pan-European warranty.
