Toyota adds conversions to Hilux and Proace
Toyota has launched a range of new bodied vehicles as part of its growing ambitions in the LCV sector.
New conversions based on the Toyota Hilux and Toyota Proace were launched at the CV Show, with the aim of increasing sales volumes and making purchasing easier for customers.
The new converted Hilux will be available as both a tipper and a dropside, with the Proace van getting a refrigerated unit and new racking options. TGS will convert the Hilux chassis, while CoolKit provide the fridge conversions and Bri-Stor the racking solutions. All conversions will be supported by a five year warranty.
The new models also herald the introduction of a new authorised converter programme. Currently five converters have gone through a rigorous verification process to become authorised Toyota body builders.
Chassis adapted by authorised converters will be backed up by the standard Toyota five year warranty, while bodywork will be supported separately by the manufacturer.
