AutoTrade.ie has learned that Toyota is increasing Corolla production in its Burnaston UK plant.
It’s adding a new hybrid commercial van version that will be available from next summer (2022). The car-derived Corolla Commercial will be based on the current Corolla Touring Sports hybrid.
Toyota is claiming that it will be the first fully hybrid electric van in its class, using the same self-charging technology as other Corolla car models.
From launch, there will be just one single version of the Corolla Commercial Hybrid Electric Van with a suggested UK price-tag of just over £22,000.
Provisional towing capacity, subject to homologation will be circa 750kg.
