Toyota Hilux, Proace Electric and Yaris Cross take honours at the Fleet World Great British Fleet Event

29 March 2022

Toyota Professional commercial vehicles are continuing their award-winning success, this time at the Fleet World Great British Fleet Event, which took place yesterday (29 March). Toyota Proace Electric won the title of Best EV Van and Hilux was named Pick-up of the Year.  In addition, Yaris Cross was the winner of the Best Fleet Small SUV category.

John Kendall, Editor Van Fleet World, described Proace Electric as “a winning combination” and highlighted how the introduction of a more powerful 2.8-litre engine in the Hilux range has added to its customer appeal, commenting that “few pick-ups have such a comprehensive range.”

Turning to Yaris Cross, John Challen, Fleet World Editor, remarked: “Building on the success of the impressive Yaris, this B-segment SUV appeals squarely to fleets with efficiency, a willing hybrid powertrain and comfort from a spacious and well-built interior.”

Stuart Ferma, General Manager Toyota and Lexus Fleet, said: “As these awards confirm, our range of Toyota Professional Commercial vehicles has gone from strength to strength with new and updated powertrains meeting the needs of an even wider range business customers. With Corolla Commercial, our first petrol electric hybrid van, arriving in the summer, we are looking forward to adding yet another new powertrain to our line-up, increasing our appeal to fleet users with a model that promises to be cost-efficient to run and versatile to use.”
