Toyota has announced that it is entering the large commercial van market for the first time with the arrival of the Proace Max. 

The new van will go on sale in 2024 as a fully electric model alongside standard diesel versions, offering class-leading range and load carrying in the electric segment, as well as a variety of body configurations. 

The new van - a product of Toyota’s partnership with Stellantis and therefore shared with Vauxhall, Citroen, Peugeot and Fiat- is powered by a 268bhp motor with 302lb ft. A 110kWh battery offers class-leading range of 261 miles and there’s 150kW charging to add 80% in less than an hour. AC charging at 11kW is also standard. 

In standard panel van format, the Proace Max offers best-in-class load and towing capabilities, with a 17m2 maximum volume, 1,800kg payload and 2,000kg towing capacity.

Electric panel vans will be available in four configurations using two heights - 2.52m and 2.78m - and two lengths - 5.99m and 6.36m, as well as seven other body-on-frame formats, ranging from a single cab with exposed rear frame to a crew cab tipper. 

Various body sizes and formats are offered

In the cabin, the Proace Max offers a broad range of storage spaces and features a 10-inch touchscreen running Toyota’s latest multimedia system, with cloud-based navigation. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard and operators can use a remote app to monitor mileage and range data, manage climate settings and lock/unlock the vehicle. 

At the same time, Toyota has updated its Proace and Proace City vans. Both have received new front-end designs, and a new people carrier format has been added to the Proace City. All versions get upgraded 10-inch touchscreens with added connected services and navigation, plus the latest Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance. 

Both have also been given a range boost, with the Proace now able to cover 217 miles on a charge, and Proace City up to 201 miles - a 31-mile improvement.

Front end styling is different to the Stellantis brands' versions
