Responding to new trends in the mobility domain and expanding our earnings base

In the automobile field, in addition to the export and import of vehicles and parts, the Mobility Business Unit I has established upstream through downstream value chains across its entire operating area, which encompasses logistics, production, wholesale, retail sales, financing, leasing, and rental services. We also focus on expanding our business base to offer a stable supply of transportation services that serve a wide variety of customers and respond to their changing needs, such as town creation with low environmental load and electrification (EV / FCV), the shift from owning products to using services, and the sharing economy. Leveraging this business platform, through operating independently or together with strategic business partners, we move to secure a stable earnings base and globalize our human resources.

In the construction and mining field, we conduct sales, aftersales service, financing, and rental operations around the globe. We also focus on the technological advancement and automation of machinery. In the industrial machinery field, we have developed a machinery sales business for machine tools, industrial robots and agricultural equipment.

In the rail transport field, in addition to the import and export of rolling stock, railway facilities and systems, and offshore sales, we are utilizing Japanese institutional finance schemes to invest in various rail transport infrastructure projects, leasing rolling stock, and operating a freight transportation business in Brazil as well as passenger transportation businesses in Brazil and the UK.
