Toyota to Test Condominium Car-Sharing in Japan

Toyota to Test Condominium Car-Sharing in Japan

Toyota Motor Corp. will offer a car-sharing program to residents of three condominiums – two in Tokyo, and one in Nagoya, Japan – in Spring 2012, using its Prius Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), as well as the iQ-based electric vehicle (EV) now under development. With a total test fleet of six cars, Toyota will allocate two vehicles to each of the three condos.

The Prius Plug-in Hybrids and “iQ”-based electric vehicle units will be serviced and managed by nearby Toyota vehicle rental and lease companies. Fees have yet to be decided.
