In preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota Motor Corporation has strengthened its partnership with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) by delivering 3,374 sustainable mobility vehicles.

These Toyota vehicles will support athletes, officials, volunteers, accredited media, and spectators at the Paris Games, highlighting Toyota’s commitment to sustainable and inclusive mobility.

Enhancing Mobility with KINTO Share

To ensure smooth access for all attendees, the vehicles will be part of a shared mobility service powered by Toyota’s KINTO Share mobile app. Available to the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee since September 2023, KINTO Share will complement Toyota’s official fleet, offering the Olympic and Paralympic family increased flexibility.

Promoting Mobility for All

Toyota’s “Mobility for All” philosophy underscores the belief that freedom of movement is essential for societal participation. Through its “Start Your Impossible” (SYI) initiative, Toyota empowers individuals to overcome mobility barriers and achieve their goals. This initiative is reflected in Toyota’s support of over 200 Global Team Toyota Athletes from 40 countries competing at the Games.

“At Toyota, we are dedicated to creating a world where each individual has the freedom to move and can realize their fullest potential, working toward our vision of ‘Mobility for All.’ Sharing this ethos is the IOC and IPC, and our partnership seeks to support athletes and remove their barriers to movement. We are proud to deliver the latest advancements of our multi-pathway strategy to Paris 2024 — showcasing the impact we have made toward an inclusive and sustainable mobility future, that enables everyone to start their ‘impossible’,” says Preston Tan, Vice President of Toyota Motor Asia.

  • deployed 250 zero-emission Accessible People Movers (APM) and

Commitment to Carbon Neutrality

At Paris 2024, Toyota will showcase its multi-pathway approach with a fully electrified fleet of 2,650 vehicles, including battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). This fleet includes models like the Toyota Mirai, a hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered sedan refueled with renewable hydrogen, in collaboration with Air Liquide.

Hydrogen-Powered Mobility

Believing in hydrogen as a key to a low-carbon future, Toyota will display ten hydrogen mobility applications in Paris 2024. This includes two FCEV buses, FCEV trucks, forklifts, boats, and the Hilux prototype, demonstrating Toyota’s vision of a sustainable hydrogen ecosystem.
