TOKYO, Jul, 01 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation will expand its KINTO ONE "beloved car"(1) subscription service nationwide,(2) initially introduced on a trial basis in the Tokyo area on March 1 of this year. Toyota will also continue to run KINTO SELECT on a trial basis as it expands the areas eligible for this service.(3) The lineup of models available through KINTO will continue to be gradually expanded, with almost all Toyota-brand vehicles and Lexus-brand vehicles to be added by around mid-2020.
As part of the lineup of models offered through KINTO ONE, the Aqua is available from 42,660 yen (including tax) per month. As options, 4WD models (excluding Aqua) and cold climate specifications(4) are included so customers can experience greater comfort when driving in snowy and cold regions. In addition, Toyota is running a family bonus campaign called "Get your second Toyota for the family with KINTO ONE!", between July 1 and September 30, offering a gift certificate worth 50,000 yen to all customers signing up for KINTO ONE if they have a family member who owns a Toyota-brand or Lexus-brand vehicle.
