Proace has been developed in a new collaboration with PSA Peugeot Citroën as a replacement for the Toyota Hiace. Production starts at the Sevelnord factory in northern France in April with UK sales scheduled to follow shortly afterwards.
Proace will be available in two lengths and heights, with load capacities of 5m3, 6m3 or 7m3. Payloads will range from one to 1.2 tonnes and Proace will be able to tow up to two tonnes. According to market, Euro 5 diesel engines with outputs from 89 to 161bhp will be offered.
In addition to its standard form, Proace can also be specified as a panel van, glass van, or six-seat crew cab. A wide range of dedicated accessories will allow customers to tailor their vehicle to suit a broad range of business and operational requirements.
Further details and provisional technical data can be found here. UK market specifications and prices will be announced later.
