Toyota & Suzuki co-develop new electric commercial minivan

Toyota claims that the commercial minivan has an expected range of 200 km per charge.

Toyota, Suzuki and Daihatsu recently unveiled a prototype of their electric commercial minivans, based on a jointly developed BEV platform. All three electric minivans are said to be built to Japan's kei car specification and are part of the push towards carbon neutrality.

The electric minivans make use of Suzuki and Daihatsu's expertise in developing small-sized cars and Toyota's electrification technology. As per reports, Daihatsu will manufacture the vehicles, with the badge-engineered versions of each model set to arrive by the end of the year. Toyota claims that the commercial minivan has an expected range of 200 km per charge.

The prototype model of the small commercial van was showcased at an exhibition event organised by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers' Association, along with the G7 Hiroshima Summit.
