This is an interesting partnership because car use on-demand might well replace car ownership by 2030, if various climate change policies are imposed successfully on the majority of UK citizens. Travel itself may well be resticted via social credit scores, so that would mean consumer login details would be needed to access any type of car transport – even electric vehicles. It also means insurance would be sold, PAYG, at the point of hire.
KINTO, the leading new mobility initiative by Toyota and the insurtech Greater Than today announce that they will deepen its collaboration around solutions that will enhance the KINTO customer experience.
KINTO is Toyota’s challenge for new mobility services and part of Toyota’s global vision to develop into a mobility company by providing various services related to transportation to people worldwide.
