Long electro breath
This is the brand new version of Nissan’s largest van. Meet the new Nissan Interstar, a sister model of the new Renault Master. Just like the Master, the Nissan Interstar is also presented directly as an EV. It will have an electric range of up to 460 kilometers.
Renault recently launched a completely new Master and that obviously also brings about a change at Nissan. After all, Nissan sells its own version of Renault’s largest van in the form of the Interstar. Just like the Master, the Nissan Interstar has now also been completely renewed. Nissan immediately presents it as a fully electric Interstar-e. It has – just like the Master E-Tech Electric – a range of up to 460 kilometers.
A bird’s eye view of the appearance. The Nissan Interstar is of course very similar to its French sister model. The lighting at the front is identical, as is the bumper work. Nissan does fill the space between the headlights and the bumper in its own way. Almost the entire part is filled here with horizontal slats, the outermost of which are glossy. The name of the bus is written in bold letters between the headlights.
The electric Nissan Interstar-e has an 87 kWh battery in the bottom, good for – depending on the chosen version – a range of up to 460 kilometers. Are you going for a short version of the Interstar-e? Then you get a smaller 40-kWh battery, good for a range of up to 200 kilometers. The maximum loading capacity of the bus is up to 1.6 tonnes, the towing capacity is 2,500 kilos. The electric Master has 130 or 143 hp electric motors. We also expect this in the Interstar-e.
The Nissan Interstar-e will be available as a closed van, but also with an open loading platform and even as a tipper. Prices of the Nissan Interstar-e will follow soon. Depending on the market, the Renault Master will also have diesel engines. The Interstar will also be available with self-igniters in many countries – without the e-addition.
