The Toyota Proace has retained its title as Medium Van of the Year and Proace Electric has won Medium Electric Van of the Year in the Company Car & Van awards.
Proace is the medium duty van in the Toyota Professional range of commercial vehicles, covering all areas of the segment with a choice of three body lengths and four powertrains. The addition of Proace Electric in 2021 added two fully electric versions to the line-up, with no compromise on load space. With a choice of a 50 or 75kWh lithium-ion battery, Proace Electric can achieve a zero-emission driving range of up to 205 miles.
Andrew Walker, Company Car & Van Editor, said: “The Toyota Proace retains our title of Medium Van of the Year 2022. It’s slightly different from its Stellantis siblings, offering more standard equipment and a longer warranty, with a slightly higher price point. It also features a cleverly designed cabin, a raft of safety features and the latest tech, plus the peace of mind that comes with owning a Toyota.”
He continued: “The Proace Electric is great to drive, features a 200-mile range, comes with a competitive payload, has a user-friendly cabin and offers the connectivity that van operators demand from their commercial vehicles. It’s one of the best electric vans you can buy.”
All Toyota Professional commercial vehicles benefit from Toyota’s ground-breaking Relax Warranty. This can provide complete peace-of-mind to the business user for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles of driving. It follows on seamlessly from Toyota’s three-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty and is automatically applied each time the vehicle is serviced at a Toyota retailer in accordance with the service schedule.
