In a move that’s sparking joy across the UK, Toyota has supercharged its lineup of electric vehicles with the debut of two electrifying people carriers: the spacious nine-seater Proace Verso EV and its compact counterpart, the Proace City Verso EV. This dynamic duo joins Toyota’s electric parade, right behind the bZ4X mid-size SUV, the brand’s flagship battery electric vehicle.
With a spectrum of hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric models that stretch from the compact Yaris to the all-new C-HR crossover SUV, Toyota is ensuring there’s an electrified ride for every type of driver. The introduction of these latest models electrifies the Proace family lineup, making the Proace Verso an all-electric affair as it waves goodbye to its diesel ancestors, while the Proace City Verso zips into the UK scene with a spark.
The Proace Verso EV is not just any electric vehicle; it’s a nine-seat Shuttle that knows how to stretch its legs, available in medium or long body lengths. It’s designed for those who need space for work, play, and everything in between. The vehicle comes with all the bells and whistles to make journeys comfortable, including a tilt and tumble seat mechanism, dark-tinted windows for privacy, and a host of automatic features from headlights to windscreen wipers.
Entertainment is just a touch away with a central seven-inch touchscreen that controls the vehicle’s eight-speaker audio system, complete with DAB tuner and satellite navigation, and smartphone integration for both Apple and Android users. The heart of the Proace Verso EV is its 100kW electric motor powered by a 50kWh lithium-ion battery, promising up to 143 miles of emission-free adventure. Speed demons and eco-warriors alike can choose their driving mode to suit their style, from the zippy Power mode to the efficient Eco mode.
Don’t let its size fool you; the Proace City Verso EV packs a punch with the same electrifying powertrain as its larger sibling. This nimble five-seater makes city driving a breeze without skimping on space, thanks to clever battery placement. Whether you’re looking for the practical Shuttle or the more luxurious Family grade, there’s a size and style to fit your needs.
The Proace City Verso EV is ready to hit the streets with its onboard charger, air conditioning, and smart connectivity features. Safety is also a top priority, with a pre-collision system and automatic air conditioning to keep everyone secure and comfortable on the go.
Toyota’s electric expansion is making waves, proving that when it comes to innovation, they’re not just playing with power—they’re leading the charge!
