Toyota Professional is expanding its light commercial offering with the launch of the Proace Electric. This will be followed later in the year by a Proace City Electric. Both of the vans are based on existing Stallantis models, already sold by Peugeot, Citroën and Vauxhall.
Toyota will offer the Proace Electric with a choice of 50kWh and 75kWh batteries, delivering potential driving ranges of 150 and 205 miles respectively. Proace Electric will initially be available in panel van, crew van and chassis cab models in the medium body length only.
All models come with a 7.4kW on-board charging capability, with an 11kW charger available as an option. Standard payloads of 1,000kg can be increased on some models to 1,275kg and the EV vans are capable of towing a trailer. Toyota will provide an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on the batteries. The van will be launched in Icon trim, while the firm’s Toyota Safety Sense package of ADAS systems will also be available.
