Toyota, KDDI, and Telstra to deliver connected vehicles

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia (TMCA) has revealed it is collaborating with Japanese telecommunications operator KDDI Australia and Telstra to bring connected-car capabilities to its vehicles.

The partnership will enable 4G mobile network connectivity for select Toyota vehicles introduced to Australia from late this year, initially for new safety and security services.

The ecosystem builds on a global communications platform to support vehicle connectivity, announced by Toyota Motor Corporation and KDDI Corporation in 2016.

“Cars are the ultimate mobility device, so this connected technology will enable us to provide new, convenient and personalised experiences to our customers while delivering on our commitment of continual improvement to safety,” said Sean Hanley, Toyota Australia’s Vice President Sales and Marketing.

More information about TMCA’s connected services are to be unveiled closer to the launch.
