Toyota launches car-sharing and rent-a-car service in Japan
Toyota Motor Corporation announces the nationwide rollout in Japan of "Toyota Share", a car-sharing service provided by Toyota dealers and Toyota rental and leasing branches, and "Chokunori", a new unmanned rent-a-car service.
Toyota is working to provide new mobility services with deep local ties by collaborating with nationwide Toyota dealers and Toyota rental and leasing branches with the aim of becoming a mobility company.
The company has been conducting verification tests, mainly in the Tokyo region, of Toyota Share since January 2019 and of Chokunori since May 2019.
Service structures were created including construction of nationwide common systems and development of apps and devices based on the opinions and comments received from customers through the verification tests regarding the vehicle quality expected from a manufacturer and comments related to apps.
Going forward, services will be expanded in stages with a focus on Toyota dealers and Toyota rental and leasing branches as preparations are completed.
