Pioneering a world-oriented business
through new “concepts” in electric vehicles.
Our company FOMM is exploring the possibilities that electric vehicles offer and developing micro electric vehicles that incorporate new “concepts” to promote their widespread use. Though these are “micro electric vehicles” we place priority on the basics demanded of any car or namely “drive-turn-stop” and “collision safety” aiming for a level that horizontally specialized car makers can never achieve. The approach taken at FOMM is based on “tech fostered in Japan” to develop an “as yet unseen type of electric vehicle” through “local optimization” focused first of all on marketing in Southeast Asia. Here at FOMM we continually provide “vehicles for easy, safe, and comfortable transportation anytime and anywhere” and are totally dedicated to this theme.

Automobiles are currently an indispensable part our lives. However, they are not always easy for everyone to use. Here at FOMM, we want to take advantage of the special features that electric vehicles offer to create micro electric vehicles that will become a familiar and ideal tool for short-range transportation in our lives. These will not be ordinary electric vehicles where a motor merely replaces the engine, but vehicles providing customers a new level of value and bringing innovation to their lives. “My dream” is to make such vehicles a reality starting from the planning and design stages; and “my motivation” is seeing these vehicles dashing around the city and the smiling faces of customers driving them. The opportunity to develop compact vehicles will provide the impetus to create motorcycles and vehicles in new configurations that serve as a true “magic carpet” pushing the boundaries of vehicles towards a truly ubiquitous society.
