Toyota will launch a large van in 2024 as part of an expanded partnership with Stellantis.
The new model will join Toyota’s existing Stellantis-derived Proace City and Proace models. It will be built alongside the next-generation Citroen Relay, Fiat Ducato, Peugeot Boxer and Vauxhall Movano.
An electric version of the large van will be available, according to Toyota.
Stellantis will produce the new large-size commercial van at its plants in Gliwice, Poland and Atessa, Italy. Planned for mid-2024, the new large-size commercial van marks Toyota’s first entry into the large-size commercial vehicle segment.
The two brands have worked together since 2012. The large-size LCV announcement today, deepens the collaboration enabling Toyota to complete a full LCV line-up in Europe, while allowing both companies to benefit from development and production cost optimisation.
“We are pleased that we can extend this successful partnership through the introduction of a new large-size commercial van. It represents an important addition and completes our light commercial line-up for Toyota’s European customers.
“The new LCV will represent a key contribution to Toyota’s growth targets for its overall LCV line-up, alongside the Hilux pick-up, Proace and Proace City, enabling Toyota to provide a mobility solution in all segments of the LCV market,” said Matt Harrison, president and CEO at Toyota Motor Europe.
