With Toyota, this will also help them integrate deeper into their services, such as insurance or maintenance. It will encourage drivers to drive safer to get lower premiums.

"In the near future, Grab and we will develop more attractive and secure services for our customers in Southeast Asia," said Toyota's deputy general manager, Shigeki Tomoyama, in a statement today. Previously, Toyota's investment company also poured money into Grab, a mobilization round that included both SoftBank (Japan) and Chinese car sharing application - Didi Chuxing.
