We talk about what kind of car to make.
How are new cars made?
First, we investigate what people want and what the current trends and fashions are.

Planning new cars starts three or four years in advance. Because of this, we have to decide what kinds of cars to make and set our goals and direction while thinking about what customers will want and how society will change in the future. We also have to determine what we think people’s lifestyles and preferences will be like in the future.
