PLDT Forges a Partnership with Toyota for Smart Cars in the Philippines

May 2023

The Philippines’ largest automotive company Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), and the country’s largest fully integrated telco PLDT recently announced a partnership that will further drive the benefits of smart connected cars and intelligent platforms technology for major fleet business operators and Toyota car owners.

PLDT, through its B2B solutions arm PLDT Enterprise, is firing up TMP’s newest suite of connected services, the myTOYOTA Connect, with smart IoT (Internet of Things) eSIM solutions powered by PLDT wireless unit Smart – the first of its kind solution to be rolled out in the Philippines.

With reliable connectivity from PLDT’s Smart IoT Platform, TMP can maximize the potential of a unified connectivity management platform. This platform then allows users to manage connectivity and monitor the usage of a range of connected IoT devices. TMP’s myTOYOTA Connect provides Toyota car owners and fleet business operators the ability to have more control over their vehicles for their safety. It promotes the efficient use of Toyota vehicles by monitoring their location, car condition, and driver speed, among other features, through their myTOYOTA App. The service can be activated in select variants of Hilux, RAV4, Hiace, and Fortuner models.
