It just has. Toyota's imprimatur means everything.

As part of the deal, Uber drivers can lease Toyota vehicles with money earned from their driving

Hopefully this will get rid of the rubhish taxi drivers in Tokyo and improve safety with less old stubborn idiots who only see a fare in front of them.
