EXCLUSIVE - First Details Of Cars Arriving In The Sims Social

The news of Cars arriving in The Sims Social online Facebook game is nothing new, as we have known this since some of the First Ever Screenshots of the game back in July 2011. The big news is that after over 6 months of waiting and speculating, it seems that we may in fact be very close to engine sounds in The Sims Social becoming a reality.

We believe that The Sims Social have signed a contract with car manufacturing giant Toyota and they may be introducing the new Toyota Prius V to players after the Alice In Wonderland theme finishes on Thursday 19th January as a quest reward.

Details of this spectacular event are still very hazy at the moment but the Toyota Prius V Car quest reward will surround the narrative of making sure your The Sims Social home is as green and environmentally friendly as possible. This will include 'Recycle' actions on Trash Cans and checking electrical appliances in your Sims home and we also believe the whole week may evolve around a Green Theme, which is of course the main USP of the new Toyota Prius V.

The only downside to all of this is that it seems like you may only be able to borrow the Toyota Prius V Car for 2 weeks! We do not know if this is 100% accurate and we cannot understand the reasons behind it, but we are sure Playfish have a trick up their sleeves regarding this whole borrowing scenario. As usual with any Unreleased Items information and news, please be aware that any release dates and specifics could very well change at the discretion of The Sims Social developers, we are just trying to give you all a heads up as to what could be just around the corner.

Are you excited to hear the news that Cars may be arriving very soon to The Sims Social? Is this a huge improvement on Quest Rewards? What other items do you think 'Green Week' will entail? What do you think the reason is behind only being able to borrow the Car for a fortnight? Do you think the cars in the screenshots look like they could be the new Toyota Prius V? We'd love to know your opinions, share them with us via FacebookTwitter or in the Comments section below.

  6. Wow! I was just thinking of building a garage-themed room into my house, and if I can get a real car into it.. Woah, that's cool ain't it?? Thought about placing amplifiers and cartoon boxes into it but now I have to make some space for the car too! :D

  7. if they plan to take the car back, then whats the point of wasting hard earned money, energy, and cash on it. i wont buy it then. its not worth it to me in the least.

  8. If the cars will be cash and only lendable for 2 weeks, I won't spend any of my money on it. I already think they're stealing money by having people play real money for hair colors, without stating that that said hair color will dissapear as soon as you change it to another color. What I buy with real money in the game should stay mine, for the entire run of the game, or until I decide to sell it. So nuff said, if this will be cash and only usable for 2 weeks after which it dissapears..they're not getting my money.

  9. Wow it's been so long since I've seen a screen shot of my place taken during the beta period. I had completely forgotten how it had looked thanks for the flash back XD

  10. That really sucks!!!!Bad enough it's gonna cost alot to get it

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'd rather ride my rockin'horse or reindeer then putting that anywhere near my house..

    ReplyDelete
  12. We need to pay for it with Simolions too and not sim cash

    ReplyDelete
  13. if it is a quest reward, we should get to keep it, too, not just borrow it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like the idea of Green week (but it should be Green year, because a little Green is just not enough!) and I like the idea of eco-friendly cars also for Sims (all my Sims2 that have cars have the Ford hybrid Escape), but - will it be a working car, or only decoration, AGAIN? I.e. will Sims actually be able to drive somewhere in it? :P

  15. I was just saying to my friend the other day, we need A car o Sims Social, and interactions like woohoo in the back seat!

    ReplyDelete
  16. If it is for only two week's then what's the point?? Great idea but totally pointless considering the cost you will pay to convert yr home etc etc

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm glad it's a quest reward because honestly, I'm not sure how much fun a car would be in our static Sim world at the moment and it takes up a lot of space (so I definitely wouldn't be using my treasured Simcash or simoleons.)

  18. traffic jams and car accidents are coming to Littlehaven. I wonder if any Sims are going to wind up in Littlehaven general hospital due to their lack of proficient driving skills. Most sims have never driven a car. Oh Dear. KLAMANCHA AND TAKAZALSPRAZZ.

  19. Why do we need cars in the sim social. It's not like you can even drive anywhere. So what you park it in your house for 2 weeks?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Not wasting my $ if it's temporary... I can tell you that right now.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wonder what we need a car for? I mean there's no city or anything where we could go?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. why toyota ? why ?????

  23. I wish it wasn't a borrow thing?! Would be great if we can have it? Can't wait to see what's next for this.. I think that the quest, should give everyone who does this quest, a car to keep forever... But, should promote other Vehicles, that range in how it operates per' cost. Like for an amount of Simoleons, a vehicle, motorcyle should have some great features.. But, for better features "social points" ... But to begin with, this here should be invited for all to enjoy, in keeping this if it's given with a quest... I think it would only be fair! Since, I'm a loyal player to Sim Social, I'm willing to do this quest - have been saving up a lot as far as Social Points and Simoleons... Let us, enjoy this round of joy by letting us keep our reward from quest, as I understand it will be from a Quest?! Is excited to hear more about this... Thanks, for this update. :)

  24. Oh, and will it have interactions? If it's just for design, I don't know. ha ha! If it has interactions, I'll take it. If we can actually, use the road shown next to the Sim Home - to interact with it, that would be super fun... -- Just a thought!

    ReplyDelete
  25. yey! =P super excited i'll start saving up!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's pointless. If I can't keep it - why bother with it?

    ReplyDelete
  27. this is too pointless. theres absolutly no point to have a car in this game. not even for decoration. its pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Amazing!!! Im happy to hear that we can get the car as a quest reward! I really appreciate it..Im thinking where and which area in my sims house should i place it.. Have no enough space.. Im done with my land expansion but still no enough space..well anyways I can find a way.. Just hope its not gonna be temporary and we can keep it not just for 2 weeks but forever? :) Toyota is good enough for me so have no problem with the "brand" its great! My concern really is the limitation storage.. I dont wanna sell my old items just so I can buy/purchase new stuff...Hope they will add more space/storage..Thanks EA/playfish for everything! Happy New year! :)

  29. Wish is was an American car! Now is a great time to promote American made prodicts along with energy saaving methods!

    ReplyDelete
  30. If the car has no interactions and cannot take us anyplace it has no real point. also on the other hand- if the car can bring us places, let us travel to homes and places, and has intercations to it, it will glitch and freeze up the screens and ruin the in game play anyhow because things hardly load NOW

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's a GOOOOD NEWWSSS

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it's highly likely that this will be true, because in The Sims Freeplay, it's Toyota that's does all the car deal things and all the Toyota Prius V's in that game are free

    ReplyDelete
  33. What? You can't keep this quest reward more than 2 weeks? If so, I won't participate in that quest.

    ReplyDelete
  34. If it is a quest reward, that would be great, but we should be able to keep our car....that would be so much better!

    ReplyDelete
  35. wait we can only use the car for 2 weeks? how much is it going to be?

    ReplyDelete
  36. hahhaha i like the idea woohoo in the backseat...

    ReplyDelete
  37. That's kewl news! I saw the "garage tile/wallpaper" & thought, now if I had a car to put in it! LOL Thanks SIM developers!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think it'll be great to have a car that we can keep!!!, and green week maybe we could get new bins, and maybe a compost... but i'd also like to see pets on here too

    ReplyDelete
  39. i want TOYOTA Prius
    in sim life and real my life :))
    thanks TOYOTA!

  40. If it's gonna be for only 2 wks, then the car ain't worth the simscash aswell as questing for it or simoleons & social points. It's a total waste of time.

  41. Placed the car at the beach house.... cant find it now.... :(
