Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has partnered with logistics provider Lalamove through its auto brand, Lalamove Automotive, to introduce the Toyota Lite Ace as a transport partner for commercial purposes.
Through this partnership. aspiring and existing Lalamove operators can now purchase the Lite Ace Panel Van variant, under Lalamove Automotive’s Vehicle Ownership Program.
With micro, small, and medium enterprises or MSMEs’ mobility needs continuously increasing, TMP, through one of its dealerships Toyota Taytay, Rizal (TTR), together with Toyota Financial Services Philippines (TFS), moved to answer the demand by creating an affordable pricing scheme for the Lite Ace.
TTR and TFS then collaborated with Lalamove to provide this lite-on-the-pocket pricing as an option for partner operators, giving them the convenience to grow their transport and delivery services.
The TTR-Lalamove Automotive Business Roadshow held last March introduced to current and potential operators the opportunity to have the Lite Ace as a mobility partner in transporting goods and services for Lalamove customers.
In support of the entrepreneurial spirit of kababayans, a series of caravans is being rolled out by TTR and Lalamove Automotive to reach out to more potential operators. Under the program and with every Lite Ace purchase, a partner operator will enjoy a comprehensive accident and repair coverage by Toyota Insure and free Periodic Maintenance Service from 1,000km until the 40,000km checkup.
Further strengthening the collaboration, plans for the program include the possibility of using vehicles from T-SURE, Toyota’s Quality Pre-Owned Cars program, for Lalamove operations.
The Toyota Lite Ace is an affordable and easy-to-use vehicle designed to be a reliable business partner for Filipino MSMEs. It comes in different variants, including Panel Van, Pickup, Cargo, and FX, catering to various needs. With its high efficiency, flexible load capacity, and low fuel consumption, the Lite Ace helps drivers and businesses maximize their trips and increase savings.
