Significant changes are taking place, on a global scale, in the environment related to vehicles. We are currently living in a highly dynamic age when, in addition to the technological revolution known as "CASE" (Connected, Autonomous/Automated, Shared, Electric), there is also a simultaneous shift in the lifestyle surrounding vehicles, with such factors as the growing popularity of car sharing.

The Automotive Company is committed to contributing to the great changes in the mobility society, by continuously providing new value while working closely on an individual level with car manufacturers and other clients.

Mobilizing not only the digital and device technologies that the Automotive Company has accumulated through the development and manufacture of in-vehicle devices, but also the insights and know-how of the entire Panasonic Group in the consumer electronics and housing businesses, we will make proposals to transform movement by car into a more enjoyable and fulfilling experience, and offer systems to support safer driving, as well as in-vehicle systems and solutions best suited for eco-friendly vehicles.

I look forward to your continued guidance and encouragement in the future.
