Advancement of Growth Strategies for Expanding Our Businesses and Strengthen Our Operating Foundation
The operating environment surrounding the Automobility segment is currently experiencing substantial volatility as the trend toward electrified vehicles is propelled by decarbonization efforts and as technological innovations, such as connected vehicles, have advanced, as businesses based on new ideas arise from market entry by players from other industries, and as changes in the way vehicles are used are seen amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Generation of Synergies through Alliance with MIRAI-LABO
In fiscal 2021, Tokyo Century concluded a capital and business alliance with MIRAI-LABO Co., Ltd., which develops businesses in the field of EV battery diagnosis, evaluation, and reuse, in order to further accelerate the Group’s EV leasing and rental business.
MIRAI-LABO boasts proprietary technology that evaluates EV battery deterioration on a module-by-module basis. It is also working to increase the value of batteries that can no longer be used in EVs by repurposing them into stationary storage batteries and autonomous street lights, depending on the level of deterioration. We intend to improve the competitiveness of our EV leases by developing with MIRAI-LABO an effective use model of batteries based on diagnostic evaluations. We will also work with MIRAI-LABO, a GX platform advocate, and its partners to bolster and supply environmentally sound mobility services related to the reuse, repurpose, and recycling of EV batteries.
