Nissan has unveiled a renewed and rebranded line-up to succeed its current offering with the Interstar, Primastar and all-new Townstar.

With the NV400 updated to Interstar, Nissan reiterates its presence in the large van segment. The NV300 will be renamed as Primastar for a medium size option, and the compact van segment will be now covered by the all-new Townstar, with both fully electric and petrol variants.

“We are prioritising our van portfolio and capitalising on the strength and expertise of the Alliance to help achieve sustainable growth. The all-new Townstar brings a new level of Nissan design and unique technology, reaffirming our capabilities in the LCV market,” said Emmanuelle Serazin, LCV & corporate sales director, Nissan Europe.

A fully electric version of the all-new Townstar will succeed the e-NV200, one of the first mass-market electric commercial vehicles.

The updated Interstar will make available an extended range of engines with 7 power outputs, from the newly introduced 110hp up to 180hp, all based on the 2.3cc engine updated at the latest Euro 6d and Euro VIe standards. Also new Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) will be introduced, such as Blind Spot Warning and Automatic High/Low headlights beam. A variety of versions will be available, such as Van, Chassis Cabs, single and double cabin, and Platform Cab, along with factory conversions such as Crew Van, Dropside Cab and Tipper.

The upgraded Primastar features a new interlock grille, LED headlamps and optional 17-inch alloy wheels. It also benefits from new ADAS features such as Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control and Intelligent Emergency Braking.

The mid-size Primastar also adds greater power with a suite of Euro 6d-compliant engines.

Each model within the refreshed line-up will include a 5-year warranty.

With the market expected to shift rapidly towards electrification, Nissan says its reimagined LCV line-up is ready to help businesses future-proof their operations.
