Toyota has revealed a new hybrid electric van that will be built at its Burnaston factory in Derbyshire.
The Toyota Corolla Commercial Hybrid Electric Van was recently given its world premiere at the 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham.
Built at Burnaston, which is the home of European Corolla production, it will be the first full hybrid electric van in its class, according to Toyota.
It will include the same self-charging technology as the Corolla hatchback and Touring Sports passenger models. Toyota said this will give the advantage of high fuel efficiency and low emissions, together with the ability to drive on pure electric power in EV mode.
