Global sales of cars are now close to a hundred million a year, and a number of signs that the long-predicted historical peak, followed by decline. To survive, automakers need to develop new forms of mobility and ownership of cars.

Toyota Motor Corp. has established a subsidiary company Kinto with headquarters in Nagoya and registered capital of 1.8 billion yen. It will offer in the domestic market a new service: the ownership of the car on the subscription (the high-sounding talk about “a new relationship between car and person”). According to the General plan resembles the system recently implemented a subscription model at Polestar, though differing in detail. Shares Kinto 66.6% owned by Toyota Financial Services (is a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota), and by 33.4% — Sumitomo Mitsui Auto Service Company.

At the time of the start of the program service Kinto One will offer to drive one of the five models of Toyota: Prius, Corolla Sport, Alphard and Vellfire, plus Crown.

The service is divided into two branches — Kinto Kinto One and Select. In One, the customer can choose one of the car brands Toyota and get it into the possession in 36 months with a monthly payment instead of the traditional shopping. Something like leasing, only a subscription is already included insurance premiums, vehicle tax, registration fees, and even regularly scheduled maintenance. In General, pour petrol and ride. Example of prices: 49 788-59 832 yen per month (including taxes) for the Prius. It is at the current rate is equivalent to 29 600-35 600 rubles. And almost five-meter Crown will require 97 200-106 920 yen (the variation depends on the configuration and options).

Service Kinto Select are generally similar. It also offers car ownership within 36 months, only offered at Lexus. The subscription price for all machines, one fixed — 194 400 yen (115 750 rubles) per month, including taxes. There is another difference from program One: in the Select client every six months to change the selected model to another, that is, for three years to try everything offered at the moment.

Service Kinto Select will begin the sixth of February 2019, and Kinto One the first of March. Initially, the entire project will start in Tokyo and its vicinity on the basis of a number of selected dealers (applications may also be made through the website Kinto). And since the summer of 2019, the program will expand to all of Japan. In addition, the fall will increase the number of models offered by subscription.

Supplement

A year after the successful launch in Japan, Toyota has announced the launch of Kinto in Europe. Curators of the brand appointed two “daughters”: TFM (Toyota Fleet Mobility) with offices in Cologne and TCE (Toyota Connected Europe) based in London. In the first stage they will offer four types of services in some EU countries.

The brand name comes from the Japanese word Kintoun is a yellow cloud, which fly characters anime Saga Dragon Ball. “As Kintoun, service Kinto wants to be available whenever the customer is looking for simple and smart ways to travel anytime, anywhere,” explains Toyota.

Kinto is One of Lizing the principle of “all inclusive” (with a monthly payment that covers services and insurance), Kinto Share — car sharing hybrids, Kinto Join — group use of vehicle (carpooling) employees of the same organization, Kinto Flex — leasing subscription with flexible terms and premium level. The appearance of Kinto in Russia is open to question, but in 2019 it has earned a firm “Toyota Lease”, making the first steps in that direction.
