Welcome to JapanAutomotiveDaily.com, the English edition of Daily Automotive News, or Nikkan Jidosha Shimbun, as our newspaper is called in Japanese.
As the automobile came into worldwide use over the course of the twentieth century, the automotive industry has grown tremendously after first moving into mass production with the American Ford Model T. Almost from the outset, since our launch in February 1929, the Daily Automotive News has kept watch of everything related to the automobile – the industry, the companies, the people and the technology.
This has spanned from the predawn of Japanese automobiles to their rise in prosperity. And this goes right through to today, where they hold the status of world leaders.
Moving into the twenty-first century, significant changes internationally and societally have brought numerous technological developments in the automobile, as it gears itself to meet new environmental and safety needs. At the center of this activity have been technologies coming out of Japan. And with the country’s automotive industry coming to lead the world, we at Daily Automotive News have worked in earnest to inform our readers on this through our newspaper, magazine and electronic mediums of publication.
The industry is now once again undergoing a period of significant innovation. With the connected car and autonomous vehicles not far across the horizon, we will see an expansion in the possibilities of the automobile as it grows into new forms of transportation.
Moving forward, we look to continue gathering and bringing information of value from Japan and across the globe to our extensive readership on all things related to the world of automobiles.
We hope that you enjoy our news in English.
