Toyota is a conservative company, but when it makes a move, it’s a big move. Toyota has just announced that it will sell insurance directly to consumers in the great state of Texas. With this new addition, Toyota has taken the last step in being the automaker with the most comprehensive footprint in the state of Texas.
“We’re thrilled to expand Toyota Auto Insurance to customers in our home state,” said Rob Spencer, Toyota Insurance's chief operating officer. “Texas drivers will now be able to benefit from our excellent coverage options and commitment to providing outstanding customer service. We look forward to offering Toyota Auto Insurance in even more states in the near future.”
If you are from Texas, you likely know that Toyota sells and delivers its cars via its dealerships in the state. Almost all brands do, short of that other T brand that makes pricey EVs for men. Toyota also moved its American headquarters to the state in 2017, joining the many companies that came to Texas and announced, “Not from here, but we got here as quick as we could!”
In addition to its newly added insurance products and North American HQ, Toyota has also been manufacturing vehicles in Texas for decades. And, of course, Toyota makes trucks in the state. The 3,800 employees at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas (TMMTX) has been building vehicles in the state for over 20 years and is now well past its one-millionth vehicle.
Toyota Auto Insurance says that it offers customers quality, customizable coverage at affordable rates. Now in its seventh state, Toyota Auto Insurance offers customers special perks. For example, an immediate upfront 5% discount and options like Toyota Genuine Parts for repairs when available. In addition, Toyota Auto Insurance works with Toyota Certified Collision Centers to get customers back on the road as quickly as possible. Since it’s from Toyota, this car insurance seamlessly integrates with Toyota vehicle benefits such as ToyotaCare Roadside Assistance, so customers can avoid paying for something their Toyota may already provide. Toyota Auto Insurance is even available to rideshare operators. Those who have a “blended fleet" need not worry. Non-Toyota vehicles in the customer’s household can, of course, be covered as well.
