The vehicles will be used by its Technical Service team, which install, manage and maintain soft drink dispense installations across the UK, and have been specified asr medium wheelbase versions in Comfort specification and fitted with Toyota’s Safety Sense and Premium Pack, which brings a range of active safety and driver assistance features.

Simon Mohun, national technical service manager with responsibility for the Britvic fleet, said: “After extensive market research and a comprehensive review of our operation, we decided the Toyota Proace was the vehicle which most suitably matched our ever-diversifying operation. It also supported the strong brand image required to fulfil our ambition, ‘To be the most dynamic, trusted and admired Soft Drinks Company in the World.’ The Proace looks great, is very well specified and offers flexible load capacity, as well as providing a high level of driver safety and comfort which our engineers deserve.”

Toyota will be displaying a Britvic-specification Proace Comfort on its stand at the CV Show later this month.
