Toyota Proace Electric: UK pricing and specs revealed

By / 3 weeks ago / UK News / No Comments

Toyota has announced UK pricing and specs for the Proace Electric; its first battery electric panel van.

Toyota Proace Electric

Priced from £34,630 (CV OTR), the Proace Electric joins the existing Proace diesel and shares its underpinnings with the Citroën e-Dispatch, Vauxhall Vivaro-e and Peugeot e-Expert vans.

It’s powered by a 138hp motor with a choice of either a 50kWh battery, giving a driving range of up to 142 miles, or a 75kWh battery with up to 205 miles. The 75kW battery gives a 1,000kg payload, rising to 1,266kg with the 50kW battery.

All models come with a 7.4kW single-phase onboard charger and a 6m Type 2 cable for connection to a home charging socket, plus a 7m Type 2 cable for connection to a 32A wallbox system. A faster 11kW tri-phased onboard charger can be specified as an option.

A fast charge via a 100kW DC system can deliver an 80% charge in less than an hour.

The Proace Electric is available in the most popular Proace format – the medium wheelbase – which is 4,959mm long and has a 3,275mm wheelbase. Fitted as standard with the Smart Cargo system, the van has an overall load length extending to 3,674mm and a load capacity of 5.8m3. The sliding side door openings are wide enough for standard-size Euro pallets to be loaded, while the load area has two lights and a 12V power outlet, with a further power socket in the cabin.

It comes in a single ‘Icon’ trim, including manual air con, automatic wipers and headlights, cruise control, electronic parking brake, rear parking sensors and power-adjustable heated and retracting door mirrors. Onboard tech brings a seven-inch touchscreen with display audio, colour multi-information display, DAB reception, Bluetooth, smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eCall and USB ports.

Initial deliveries start during the fourth quarter of 2021.
