Toyota Professional saw its share of the market grow in every segment in which it competes last year, though actual sales numbers were down along with the overall market.

The latest Hilux pick-up was certainly well received, increasing its share of the market by 4.3%. The diesel Proace also saw a small increase in share of 0.2%.

The company launched Proace City into the market in 2020 and this will be joined later this year by the EV Proace City Electric. That leaves just a large van missing from the company portfolio, a gap that will surely be filled over the coming years.

Toyota is hoping to sell up to 6,000 Proace vans a year by 2025, including diesel and electric models. That said, how that mix is split will be down to customer choice. However, simply having electric vans in the offer will allow dealers to tender for a broader spread of fleet deals, particularly with local authority and utility buyers keen to make the move to electric vehicles.
