Electric vans expected in 2022

Toyota Proace

In recent years, the electric vehicle market is growing, with an increasing number of manufacturers introducing electric vans. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the demand for vans have rocketed, as most consumers have moved toward online shopping.

As a result of the global challenges such as Covid, the automotive industry is currently under great pressure which is having a significant impact on the supply and delivery of vehicles. For example, the current lead time for some of the new car and van models is 12-18 months. According to experts, the lead times for new electric vehicles have fallen, however our advice is to plan well ahead to avoid disruption.
