SINGAPORE -- Southeast Asia's largest ride-hailing app operator Grab will collect drive data from its fleet with Toyota Motor, one of the startup's big investors, to provide better fleet management as regional ride-hailing competition heats up.

On Tuesday, Grab said it would install Toyota's telematics devices in 1,500 cars in Singapore early next year, through which they can collect and analyze drive data from the vehicles.
