For Nissan in Europe, the strategic partnership forged with Renault in 1999 (and the Renault-Nissan alliance, now Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi), has made it possible to create numerous synergies, for the sharing of platforms, technologies, and even complete models. Renault Mégane and Nissan Tiida, Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoé, Qashqai and Kadjar, X-Trail and Koleos… The two allies experienced a development hand in hand, which was beneficial to both of them. Also in utility vehiclesthe partnerships are old. Interstar/Master in 1999, Primastar/Traffic in 2001 and finally Kangoo/Cubistar in 2003. This is still the case today. After a brief period NV250, NV300 and NV400, the trio of Nissan utilities is now called Townstar, Primastar et Interstar. Traditionally, Renault launches its new model first, and Nissan follows a few months later. The latest is the Kangoo of course! The new Townstar followed in 2022.

It has just appeared on the Nissan configurator. She gains 42 centimeters more, and sees her length thus increased to 4.91m. Its loading volume is now between 4.3 and 4.9m3. It’s 1m3 more than on the short version. This long Townstar must however be satisfied with a single engine in thermal. In the person of the 1.2L of 130 horsepower.
