Toyota Motor Corporation Australia to Deliver Connected Vehicles with KDDI Australia and Telstra

TMCA announces connected-car capabilities

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia (TMCA) is bringing industry-leading connected-car capabilities to Australia in collaboration with Japanese telecommunications operator KDDI Australia and national connectivity provider Telstra.

The partnership will enable 4G mobile network connectivity for select TMCA vehicles introduced to Australia from late this year, initially with new safety and security services designed to provide customers with additional peace of mind.

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

Toyota Australia's Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said the introduction of connected vehicles is a vital step towards achieving the company's vision of mobility for all.

"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," Mr Hanley said.

KDDI Australia's Managing Director Jun Miura said it was a great honour to contribute to a project that aims for a future where vehicles are connected all over the world.

"We are thrilled to see what our global communications platform and the Telstra network can bring to the connected car market in Australia," Mr Miura said.

Telstra's Global IoT Solutions Executive Gerhard Loots said Telstra was thrilled to partner with TMCA and KDDI to help bring connected-car capabilities in Australia.

"What's really exciting is how connected vehicle technology will not only make driving easier for Australians, but also make it safer," Mr Loots said.

More information about TMCA's connected services will be provided closer to the launch.
