Nissan has added a long-wheelbase option to its Townstar van range.

The new L2 variant is available with a choice of petrol or electric power – the latter featuring a 122hp electric motor, and a 45kWh battery, offering a combined range of up to 171 miles between charges.

With a vehicle length of 4,910mm, the L2 features a 4.3mload bay capacity – a 1m3 increase on the existing L1 – and features a wider side door, at 831mm, allowing a Europallet to be loaded.

Payload of the L2 is up to 800kg, and there’s a 1,500kg towing capacity.

Pre-orders for the Townstar L2 are open now. Prices excluding VAT start at £21,625 for the petrol version, and £33,945 (also excluding the Plug-in Van Grant) for the electric.
