Toyota Motor Philippines and its local affiliate, Toyota Financial Services Philippines, will allow eligible Grab drivers to avail of its trade-in offers, maintenance deals and financing plans, as well as discounts on batteries, air-conditioner cleaning and car detailing.
Toyota added that eligible drivers will be notified of the offers through their Grab mobile app.
The partnership is part of the Japanese carmaker's $1 billion investment in Grab to grow the Singapore-based company's range of services and to integrate Toyota's predictive maintenance and user-based insurance in Grab's operations.
