Singapore: Following an investment of USD 1 billion in the ride hailing app, Grab, Toyota Motor Corp (TMC), has decided to offer Total-care service to 1,500 Grab cars through GrabRentals.

The company would implement total-care service in order to enhance the platform safety with the assistance of data transmission device called TransLog. The device would collect the information and send it to the mobility service platform. The collected data will provide information regarding the maintenance of vehicles with an aim to reduce the insurance premium for the Grab drivers.
President of Grab stated that "The company is excited to work with Toyota to roll out the Total-care Service to the Grab Rental fleet. The ability to meld data analytics with vehicle maintenance will make their rental fleet even safer for driver-partners and towards achieving their goal to raise transport safety standards in the region."
According to TechSci Research, the partnership between Toyota and Grab is aimed towards increasing the number of Toyota cars in the Grab fleet. Total-care Service will enable Toyota to leverage onboard telematics data through a shared information platform and provide services such as fleet management, automotive insurance and vehicle maintenance packages, aimed at expanding the use of ride-hailing vehicles and enhance the driving experience for end users.
