An additional brand-new electrical van is going into the marketplace, as well as it’s called the Nissan Townstar. “New” is a little bit of a misnomer, however, as the EV is changing Nissan’s old e-NV200 in the car manufacturer’s European industrial lorries schedule. We’re unsure if the brand-new Townstar will certainly ever before make the expedition to this side of the world, yet there were rumblings of the e-NV200 doing so formerly.

Its front guard incorporates what Nissan is calling the “Kumiko” pattern as well as a brand-new take on the V-motion layout grille. The gas-powered variation of the Townstar looks somewhat various, including a various front end with an appropriate grille to cool down the engine.
