Denso, one of the largest mobility suppliers, announced that it will
invest approximately JPY180 billion ($1.6 billion) over the next three
years - from FY2018 to late FY2020 - to support its aggressive
development and production of electrified automotive products, systems
and technologies.

To achieve its long-term business goal to create and inspire new value for the future of mobility, Denso is focussed on increasing its performance in the area of electrification.

“Denso is committed to advancing automotive innovation and anticipating the changing needs of our customers in the transportation industry. Electric vehicles are increasingly becoming the norm throughout the world, and to meet the rising global demand for automotive electrification technologies and products, Denso will strengthen its ability to develop and produce them,” said Yukihiro Shinohara, Senior Executive Office of Denso.

To accelerate business execution around electrification, Denso is establishing the Electrification Innovation Centre at Denso's Anjo Plant in Anjo, Aichi, Japan, in May 2020. The Electrification Innovation Centre will conduct advanced R&D, develop and test prototypes, and launch newly developed automotive electrification products, systems and technologies.

In addition, now that Denso and Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) have officially agreed to consolidate their electronic component businesses within Denso, Toyota's Hirose Plant will be transferred to Denso in April 2020. Denso will use the Anjo and Hirose Plants to establish safe, efficient and sustainable manufacturing processes for electrification-related components. The superior production lines established at the Plants will be rolled out to Denso's manufacturing companies and affiliates worldwide.

Denso has long developed and produced key products for electric vehicles, including inverters and motor generators used in hybrid vehicles and battery packs for mild hybrid vehicles, and it helped pioneer the Prius. Recently, Denso has partnered with startups to develop software-based solutions to advance innovation in electrification, as well as automated driving, connectivity and shared economy.
