Toyota has launched its Ha:mo car-sharing in Bangkok and wants to study motorist behaviour in Thailand’s capital over the next two years.

Toyota is in schedule to launch its car sharing in Thailand’s capital Bangkok. The plan had been announced back in September and saw Toyota sign an agreement with local Chulalongkorn University for the installation of 10 ultra-compact single-seaters at the university campus. Using one of the vehicles costs 30 baht (92 cents) for 20 minutes. Afterwards the tariff switches to 2 baht per minute.

Mid-2018 20 additional units are to follow. Ha:mo that exclusively uses tiny electric cars called Toyota Coms has already sites in several Japanese cities and the French city of Grenoble.
