Nissan prepares to launch Townstar Evalia EV as a seven-seater

Nissan has presented the up to seven-seater Evalia variant of its Townstar, which is also available with an all-electric drive. This is the passenger car version of the Townstar EV electric panel van, which is equipped for private customers.

The drive with 90 kW output and 45 kWh battery remains unchanged, and Nissan gives the WLTP range of the Townstar Evalia EV as up to 265 kilometres. Up to 300 kilometres are possible for the panel van in the WLTP test, as this is measured with an empty load compartment and not with the additional seats and more equipment on board. AC charging takes place at 22 kW, DC charging via CCS and no longer via CHAdeMO due to Renault technology. With up to 80 kW, the battery can be charged from 15 to 80 per cent in 37 minutes. Unlike its predecessor, the e-NV200, the Townstar EV is no longer based on a Nissan platform, but shares its technology with the Renault Kangoo.

Unlike the commercial customer version, the Evalia is only available for private customers with the longer wheelbase – and with five or optionally seven seats. Each of the rear seats can be folded down individually or even removed to transform the Evalia from a seven-seater into a five-seater or even a two-seater with up to 3,750 litres of load space.

The wide sliding rear doors are designed to make access to the seats in rows two and three “easier than ever”, according to Nissan. “Whether it’s packing the weekly food shop, loading up critical business deliveries or getting the kids in and out on the school run, the Evalia maximises space to make everyday tasks that little bit easier,” the press release states.

The Evalia is equipped ex-works with the “Nissan Intelligent Around View Monitor”, a blind spot warning system and an intelligent emergency braking assistant. Safety features to support driver performance, including drowsiness warnings, tyre pressure monitoring, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors and e-call functionality are also on board.

Prices for the Townstar Evalia EV are not yet public. However, the panel van starts at a recommended retail price of 40,162 euros , so the Evalia is likely to be somewhat more expensive.
