What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
Electric vehicles are generally associated with quietness because you don’t have an engine chuntering away under the bonnet, but not all electric vans deliver on that promise. The boxy bodies and larger-than-life door mirrors can generate a lot of wind noise on some models.
Fortunately, this isn’t an issue with the Toyota Proace City Electric, partly because it’s packed with a lot of sound-deadening material, and partly because its door mirrors are actually quite small.
