These complementary strengths enable us to develop and deliver cutting-edge technology at scale—optimizing for safety, advancing clean energy and elevating well-being. We envision a human-centered future where world-class technology solutions expand global access to mobility, amplify the capabilities of drivers, and empower humanity to thrive.
Woven City is a fully connected ecosystem, powered by hydrogen fuel cells, to be built at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan.
