Looks like it's going into the same market as the transit connect

Toyota is opening another chapter in its zero emission vehicle strategy with the announcement of a Battery electric version of its Proace City compact van. The new model will join the Battery electric Proace medium duty van in the Toyota Professional light commercial vehicle range. Proace City Electric will be available with a 50kw/h lithium-ion Battery, giving a maximum power output of 134bhp, ensuring smooth operation in low emission zones. Details and specifications of the UK model will be finalised in 2021 ahead of the new model’s introduction towards the end of the year.

 

Looks like Badge engineering

The Citroën Berlingo and Peugeot Partner/Rifter are almost identical panel vans and leisure activity vehicles produced by PSA Peugeot Citroën since 1996. The third generation is also sold as the Opel/Vauxhall Combo, and as the Toyota ProAce City from 2019.

Well, you would expect Peugeot, Citroen, and now Vauxhall pushing out the same van different badges because they the same group, and there has been a link to Fiat on some vans for more then a few years, but for Toyota to get into bed with PSA is something I would have thought would happen. Needs and Musts have obviously played a big part. Interesting.

Thanks.

I think that the ordinarie Proace and former Aygo models has been connected to PSA for several years, though

Are you in the market for that class of van?

Toyota have been producing vehicles with PSA, now Stellantis, since 2005.

Firstly as part of the Joint Venture (now wholly owned by Toyota) building the Aygo/Citroen C1/Peugeot 107 from 2005, and then with the rebadged Citroen Jumpy/Despatch, Peugeot Expert, Fiat Scudo, and Toyota ProAce from 2013.  

The second generation Aygo/C1/108 came in 2014, followed by the second generation ProAce in 2016, and the ProAce City (Berlingo/Partner/Rifter/Vauxhall-Opel Combo) from 2019. Presumably as Fiat is part of Stellantis, there will also be a Fiat clone.

The UK aren't getting the ProAce City Verso - just the ProAce City panel van. Presumably if Europe gets the Corolla Cross, there will be too much overlap between the Corolla Cross and the ProAce City Verso in the UK.

Yes, I think the City Verso electric would suit our needs nice for transporting our youngest daughters wheelchair (would replace our Prius + 2017 in that case) and for family trips. Intend to keep our Prius 2018 PHV for one and two person trips

Corolla Cross all electric would suit us perfect, if it comes to Sweden

I knew, but forgot about the Aygo/C1/Pug107 - shouldnt have forgot, we had a C1

Although I have had a Dispatch and Scudo vans, I didnt relate to ProAce being involved.

Apparently coming to relace the Doblo. As it is the Stellantis/Proace variants have pretty much 60% of that segment. https://carsalesbase.com/european-sales-2021-first-half-passenger-van/

The economics for Toyota to build their own vans in Europe just are not there.
