There are two Townstar body lengths, short L1 and long wheelbase L2. The L1 can carry up to 3.3m3 (a lot less than the 4.2m3 of its NV200 predecessor), but if you stretch to the L2 Townstar model, you can boost that to 4.3m3 of load space. As for payload, well if that's important to you, then you might want to think twice about this EV electric version because it's slightly restricted there - with the 'L1' standard body shape to 500kgs (compared to 689kgs in the combustion version). An 'L2' long wheelbase Townstar EV could carry up to 702kgs (compared to up to 770kg in the combustion version). With either powertrain, you'll be able to tow up to 1,500kg.
Both body shapes can squeeze in a pair of standard Euro pallets thanks to the generous 1,248mm width between the wheel arches that all Townstars share - it's 1,570mm from wall to wall. The rear entrance aperture is 1,115mm tall by 1,256mm wide (narrowing to 1,196mm just above the tail lights). The loading length is 1,810mm in the 'L1' version - or 2,230mm with the 'L2' body shape (which has a slightly lower loading sill height of 613mm).
The side door width aperture on the L1 model is 615mm; it's 831mm on the L2 model, that latter width allowing that L2 variant to admit a Euro pallet through the side door. In both cases, the aperture height is 1,060mm.
If running costs are key, you're likely to want to look at the full-electric version. We gave you the range figure for that in our 'Driving' section - 183 miles - which is vastly more than was possible from previous e-NV200 model. Electric versions of the Townstar come with an 11kW (Visia grade) or 22kW AC (Acenta grade upwards) on-board charging system. As with this model's e-NV200 predecessor, a DC rapid charging connector is standard from Acenta grade, which can DC recharge the battery from 0% to 80% in a little under 40 minutes. A 7.4kW garage wallbox will replenish the battery in 7 hours.
