The new Toyota PROACE MAX, also available in its electric version, marks the entry of the Japanese brand into the large-sized van market in Europe. The PROACE MAX joins an expanded PROACE family of vehicles alongside the updated PROACE and PROACE CITY as part of a comprehensive Toyota Professional product portfolio of commercial vehicles. It is the result of a new piece of the long-lasting collaboration with Stellantis on the development of commercial vehicles, especially electric. The vehicle will be available from 2024 onwards.

Toyota PROACE MAX: size and weight options

A total of six different sizes are available in full van format, based on two wheelbase options, 3,450 mm and 4,035 mm, via three different lengths (5,413 mm, 5,998 mm and 6,363 mm) and three heights (2,254 mm, 2,524 mm and 2,764 mm). These combinations offer spacious cargo area volume from 10 m³ to 17 m³, which is large enough to comfortably hold five Euro pallets.

In terms of vehicle weight, the options vary from 3,300 kg to 3,500 kg for the diesel-powered PROACE MAX and 3,500 kg or 4,250 kg for battery electric options, depending on the configuration, and all variants feature impressive load carrying and towing capacities. The battery electric PROACE MAX leads its class with 1,500 kg payload capacity and 2,400 kg towing capability, depending on the size configuration. With diesel vehicles, up to 1,425 kg payload is possible along with 3,000 kg towing capacity, depending on the combination of length and height. Loading and unloading the PROACE MAX is straightforward thanks to full height doors and a practical square opening, 1,562 mm wide and up to 2,030 mm high, with a low threshold for easy access.

Range, power and battery performance of the PROACE MAX EV

With a driving range of up to 420 km (WTLP standard), the fully electric PROACE MAX has enough range for practical day-to-day operations. An effortless drive with the smooth, comfortable ride typical of an EV is achieved thanks to 270 hp (200 kW) of power combined with the confidence of 410 Nm of torque.

When the high-performance 110 kWh battery requires more energy, it can be recharged to 80% in as little as 55 minutes via a fast-charging system, capable of up to 150 kW, to minimise down time on longer journeys. An 11kW AC onboard charger is also provided for convenient charging.

The new PROACE MAX represents a deeper collaboration between Toyota Motor Europe and Stellantis, which started in 2012 and allows both companies to benefit from development and production cost optimisation. Stellantis’ plants in Gliwice, Poland and Atessa, Italy will produce the PROACE MAX.
