Journey of Challenges as Seen through Five Operating Segments

Responding to Diversifying Automobile Needs with Unparalleled Service Quality and Networking Capability

Our Automobility segment manages an industry-leading number of vehicles and boasts a diverse collaborative network. We provide optimal services for customer objectives by addressing vehicle-related issues such as management, cost reduction, safe driving measures.

2013–2015Business Development

Providing a Full Range of Comprehensive Auto Services for Both Corporate and Individual Customers

We began expanding our auto business in earnest. In 2013, we broadened our lineup of auto services for both corporate and individual customers by converting Nippon Car Solutions Co., Ltd., an auto leasing company, and Nippon Rent-A-Car Service, Inc., a car rental service provider, into consolidated subsidiaries to accumulate expertise and establish automobility business models.



Converted Nippon Rent-A-Car Service, Inc. into an Equity-Method Affiliate


Converted Nippon Car Solutions Co., Ltd. into a Consolidated Subsidiary

Nippon Car Solutions Co., Ltd. merged with Tokyo Auto Leasing Co., Ltd. and became a consolidated subsidiary of Tokyo Century. This enabled us to provide a total car service by fully applying the management resources of the two companies.

2016–2018Leap Forward

Steady Growth as a Promising Business

As new lifestyles and values, such as the sharing economy, became widespread, the value of automobiles shifted from ownership to shared usage and car sharing became popular. This generated a tailwind for the car rental business, and the entire Automobility segment steadily expanded.



Nippon Car Solutions Co., Ltd. decided to acquire shares of Tokyo Gas Auto Service Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd.



Abolished Nippon Rent-A-Car franchise system and shifted it to a directly managed system.


Also Provided Value in New Mobility Services Such as EVs

We focused on providing new mobility services that accurately meet customer needs based on the key concepts of digital technologies, mobility, and EVs. We developed services that responded to the spread of new mobility services, including EVs and connected vehicles, and diversifying mobility demand, and worked to create new mobility services that utilize digital technologies.



Nippon Car Solutions Performed Well Despite the COVID-19 Pandemic

Nippon Car Solutions achieved significant growth in ordinary income. Leasing revenues increased, and the company was able to flexibly sell off vehicles with expired leases without missing the timing of the soaring prices in the used car market. As a result, and despite the severe business environment imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, it was able to perform well.



Signed a Capital and Business Alliance Agreement with MIRAI-LABO Co., Ltd., which Possesses EV Battery Diagnosis and Evaluation and Reuse Technologies

As the popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) increased, we acted to expand our EV leasing and rental business by entering into a capital and business alliance with MIRAI-LABO Co., Ltd., which develops EV battery diagnosis and evaluation and reuse businesses. While strengthening the EV leasing and rental business, we also strived to realize environmentally sound mobility services.


Formed a business alliance with Yanekara Inc., a startup company involved in EV charge/discharge management systems, etc.
