Lexus Japan’s CT 200h Harmonious Driving Navigator

Lexus CT 200h Harmonious Driving Navigator

The Japanese Lexus CT 200h comes equipped with a very interesting new feature: the Harmonious Driving Navigator, a service that connects the car to the Internet and gives the ability to track fuel efficiency online and compete against other CT 200h drivers.

I only have the translation of the Japanese webpage for information, but looks like points are awarded depending on where you drive in the Hybrid Eco Meter:

From there, I believe all drivers are ranked by overall efficiency and various other categories.

The part that really impressed me — these earned points can be used to fund different charitable initiatives from the Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan. Brilliant idea all round.

They sure do. I wonder if Toyota/Lexus still uses the Navi AI-shift for their vehicles equipped with the gps system...
