Mark Roden, Toyota GB Sales Director, said: “This award is much valued and recognises the real advances we have made in developing a van that delivers on hard-wearing, lasting quality, innovation and practicality. We’ve also made sure that PROACE provides all the equipment today’s customers demand, in terms of safety, comfort and convenience in a range that reaches every part of the sector.”
Introduced this summer, PROACE provides a comprehensive range that embraces three wheelbases, payloads up to 1.4 tonnes and commercial load volume up to 6.6m3. Bringing innovative design to a hugely competitive market, PROACE Compact’s packaging succeeds in providing medium van load capacity within a compact van footprint. The availability of a Smart Cargo system also adds valuable extra load space, by means of a bulkhead opening and lifting front passenger seat base.
As well as a standard panel van, PROACE is also available in a nine-seat Combi version; it also provides the basis for Toyota’s new PROACE Verso large MPV.
