The new Proace will go on sale in the United Kingdom on July 1, with prices starting from £22,300 for the base Panel Van and rising to £27,800 for the passenger Crew Van model.If you haven't already heard or figured it out by yourself, the Proace is the result of an OEM agreement between the Japanese carmaker and the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group, and is based on the Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert models as well as the Fiat Scudo van.
In the UK, customers will have 10 versions to choose from that differ in terms of load capacity, payload and performance. There are nine panel vans in two vehicle lengths and heights, payloads of one or 1.2 tonnes, and three diesel engines, while Toyota also offers the ProaceCrew Cab with seating for up to six passengers.
