Triple success for Toyota at Fleet News Awards

18 March 2022

Toyota Professional commercial vehicles were to the fore in the Fleet News Awards this week, with Proace City named Best Small Van and, in battery-electric form, Best Zero Emission Small/Medium Van. RAV4 was also honoured, taking the Best Mid-size SUV award for a third time.  

Commenting on Proace City, the judges remarked: “The addition of a viable electric offering helps the Toyota Proace City to stand out in this category, while its best-in-class warranty, strong residual values, twin side load doors, excellent total cost of ownership and solid payload make it the winning package.

“The Proace City Electric is the perfect van for the urban home delivery market, it has class-leading warranty, attractive pricing and great aftersales service, all wrapped up with a real-world range that meets most fleets’ daily requirements.”

The judges’ comments acknowledged RAV4’s continued success in the award. They noted: “A three-time winner in this category, RAV4 has excellent real world fuel efficiency, best-in-class electric range and is spacious and reliable, making it popular with drivers. Good looking, well equipped, safe and reliable, it’s the perfect choice for fleets and their drivers.”

Stuart Ferma, General Manager Toyota and Lexus Fleet, said: “The judges’ recognition of our strong cost of ownership message, backed up by the new Toyota Relax warranty is really rewarding to see, together with their acknowledgement of how these factors contribute to peace of mind and lower running costs for vehicle fleets.  This year we will extend the Toyota Professional range, adding Corolla Commercial, the market’s first petrol hybrid electric van, to the line-up.

“RAV4’s dominance in the Best Mid-size SUV segment is testimony to its overall winning package of hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric efficiency, with low running costs and, as with all Toyota vehicles, a class-leading warranty package.”
