The Toyota Proace City Electric might not be the first model that springs to mind when you think of the Japanese brand and commercial vehicles – you’re probably picturing something pick-up truck-shaped with a Hilux badge – but we think perhaps it should be.
You see, this Proace City Electric van is the result of some nifty collaboration between Toyota and the Stellantis group (Peugeot, Citroën and Vauxhall). That means it has three siblings: the Citroën e-Berlingo, the Peugeot e-Partner and the Vauxhall Combo-e.
Aside from vans it shares underpinnings with, rivals for the Proace City Electric are actually relatively sparse. They will include the forthcoming Renault Kangoo E-Tech and Mercedes eCitan, although you might also consider slightly larger vans which are still viable city runabouts, including the Nissan e-NV200 and Maxus E Deliver 3.
Not content with having a commercial vehicle version, the Japanese manufacturer also offers a people carrier with seats for up to seven, the Toyota Proace City Verso Electric.
In this review we’ll tell you what the Toyota Proace City Electric is like to drive and live with, rating its performance, interior, running costs and more, to help you work out whether it's a good fit for your business.
