Support for next-generation mobility deployment
We support the deployment of next-generation mobility focusing on electric vehicles (EVs). We will not only promote new cars but reuse EVs as well by re-commercializing individual EVs and batteries, and applying them for different secondary uses based on their performance.
In the recent environment surrounding the business community where ESG (environmental, social and governance) investment has increasingly grown among other things, there is a growing call on businesses to address SDGs (sustainable development goals) and materiality (important social issues) including environmental measures for global warming and other issues.
Sumitomo Mitsui Auto Service states in its management philosophy that its aim is to "Contribute to the progress of automotive society and the improvement of the global environment."
For example, we propose plans to contribute to the environment by helping customers deploy next-generation mobility replacing some of the existing gasoline cars with EVs or other eco-friendly vehicles.
We recommend next-generation mobility deployment optimized for the customer from an economic, social, and environmental perspective. To realize this, our support goes beyond providing next-generation mobility and extends to providing support in operating battery chargers and other infrastructure.
We promote not only new cars but also reuse EVs to adapt to a recycling-oriented society. While building a model cycle for reuse EVs, we accelerate cooperation with the national and local governments and other companies to contribute to the establishment of an EV ecosystem.
The use of next-generation mobility not only contributes to the environment and society, but knowing the remaining battery power and other data is expected to enable the driver to select and use efficient driving routes.
Besides being environment friendly, next-generation mobility vehicles can be used as "power supply cars." They are expected to be used as emergency backup power supplies during business operations, power outages, etc.
Unlike gasoline cars, EVs and other next-generation mobility vehicles operate smoothly from engine startup to acceleration and are very quiet. You can drive them early in the morning or late at night and take into consideration the driving environment (e.g., residential area).
