Nissan Interstar-e: new front end, 100% electric

February 7, 2024

Multiple versions of Nissan Interstar-e

The new Nissan Interstar-e comes as a closed van and a double-cab version in short and long versions. Ex-factory, the Interstar-e is available as a tipper, with an open cargo box and with an enclosed, lightweight furniture box. All versions have one thing in common: a significantly modified front design in which the large grille in particular catches the eye. The more streamlined front also reduces drag by 20%. That increases efficiency.

The powertrain

The all-electric Interstar-e is available with different battery sizes. The version with an 87 kWh battery is good for a maximum range of up to 460 km (WLTP). Up to 252 km of recharging can be done in 30 minutes on a DC fast charger. The short Interstar-e has a battery capacity of 40 kWh and offers a range of up to 200 km (WLTP). Charging from 10 to 100% of this more compact battery can be done in 4 hours at an AC charge point.

Cargo area Nissan Interstar-e

The new Interstar-e offers a 100 mm longer cargo space than its predecessor. The maximum payload is 1.6 tons. The Interstar-e thus offers even more payload capacity than many a diesel van in the 3,500 kg GVW segment. The maximum towing weight of 2,500 kg is certainly quite high for an electrically powered light commercial vehicle. Maneuverability has also increased thanks to a 1.5-meter shorter turning radius, which comes in handy in tight urban spaces.


The interior of the new Interstar-e features ergonomic and multi-adjustable seats, robust upholstery and a heatable windshield. Photos of the interior have not yet been released.


The new Nissan Interstar-e has quite an arsenal of safety and driver assistance systems. These include Forward Emergency Braking, fatigue recognition and a tire pressure monitoring system. Trailer Sway Assist increases stability when towing a heavily loaded trailer. The advanced braking system also adjusts braking action and power according to load. It makes you feel safe.

Light commercial vehicles

The Interstar-e is part of Nissan’s commitment to have its entire range of light commercial vehicles electrified by 2026. Electrification will become an even more important issue in the coming years, partly due to the elimination of the BPM exemption for commercial vehicles in 2025 and the introduction of zero-emission zones in inner cities from the same year. The Nissan Townstar EV already preceded this Interstar-e. Nissan offers a 5-year or 160,000 km warranty on its commercial vehicles and an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty on battery packs.
