If variety is the spice of life, Toyota’s van range is about to heat up considerably. That’s because the brand will add a new large van to its line-up from 2024, with a choice of conventional diesel engines or electric power.

Toyota will build the as-yet-unnamed model in conjunction with Stellantis – that’s the Citroën, Peugeot and Vauxhall brands to most of us – and the electric van version will be a rival to the Ford E-Transit and Fiat E-Ducato.

The van in electric form will likely be based on the same underpinnings as the Peugeot e-Boxer, Citroen e-Relay and Vauxhall Movano. It will use the same 121bhp electric motor as those vans, with battery sizes of 37kWh and 75kWh, providing a range of up to 160 miles. The combustion-engined variant is expected to borrow its engines from the regular Peugeot Boxer, Citroën Relay and Vauxhall Movano.

The Toyota Proace City Electric – along with its Citroën, Peugeot and Vauxhall siblings – was the overall winner in our Van and Commercial Vehicle Awards 2022 so we can expect the new large van to be a compelling choice for van drivers.

Toyota and Stellantis have been in partnership since 2012, with the agreement already yielding the Toyota Proace medium van, the Proace City small van, and electric variants of both of those models. 

When the new model goes on sale, the electric version is expected to cost from around £57,000 (excluding VAT), making it slightly more expensive than its badge-engineered siblings. The combustion-engined version will cost less, likely from around £30,000 (excluding VAT).
