Drive Lean,Live Life

Long traffic jams, narrow streets, insufficient parking spaces.
In our overcrowded urban life, is today's infrastructure really sufficient?

Are comfort and convenience the only things needed for transportation in city life?

As a front-runner in the transportation industry,
We have been committed to creating a future of transportation that is rooted in people's daily lives.

The new concept of personal transportation is filled with excitement: it is more efficient and environmentally friendly, providing a smoother and more adaptive way to get around the city. It enables you toconnect directly with anyone passing by to allow for new encounters.

We aim to create a richer urban lifestyle facilitated by new relationships between people, vehicles, and society, and hand it over to the next generations.

We are a one-stop solution provider for the transportation ecosystem of the future, from developing, manufacturing, and selling vehicles to after-sales care and even handling the disused cars.

Average vehicle occupancy
Average vehicle seating capacity

The average four passenger car carries an average of only 1.3 passengers. This physical redundancy of vehicles is one of the factors contributing to issues of urban transportation such as traffic congestion, parking, and CO2 emissions. As a fundamental solution to these challenges, Lean Mobility aims to downsize the vehicle to create an efficient, environmentally- and people-friendly urban transportation system.

Lean Mobility has developed a new category of compact urban EVs named RideRoid. Its first model, Lean3, features a two-seater*, full-viewing passenger cabin equipped with an air conditioner, while being approximately one third the size of a passenger car**. The state-of-the-art sensing and control technologies create a safe and invigorating driving experience. Its lean body with less environmental impact facilitates more casual detours and communication with surrounding people, bringing both convenience and a richer experience to urban dwellers.

* The projected area from the top surface of the vehicle when parked is one third of that of a passenger car.
** In Japan, it is allowed to accommodate one person in accordance with the mini-sized motor vehicle category.
Active Lean System: Sensing and control technologies that bring safety and driving pleasure.

Active Lean Technology controls the suspension and steering to optimize the lean of the vehicle while moving. It provides a stable ride and an invigorating cornering experience even while making turns or driving on rough surfaces despite the compact vehicle size.

  • 2022
    Lean Mobility was established.

    Lean Mobility was founded by Akihiro Yanaka following his career at Toyota Motor Corporation. Various specialists in the transportation business successively joined the company.

  • 2024
    It raised 2.8 billion yen in funding as a Japan-Taiwan alliance and started preparing for mass production.

    The company raised a large amount of funding as a startup based on a partnership between Japanese and Taiwanese businesses. A production system for mass production is under development through extensive cooperation with a number of companies in Japan and abroad. The company is further accelerating its business activities, including product development, mass production, and sales preparation.

  • 2025
    It will spur its development toward a product launch in 2025 with the goal of producing more than 50,000 vehicles.

    There is a large demand for mobility that is not met by existing products, such as redundancy and maneuverability in automobiles and safety and comfort in motorcycles. Thus, the potential market is expected to amount to approximately six million vehicles.
    Starting with its launch in Taiwan, the company is looking to expand into the Japanese and European markets. The goal is to produce more than 50,000 vehicles by the fifth year.


Our team includes specialists with a wealth of knowledge and experience in various aspects of the mobility business, including the characteristics of the manufacturing ecosystem, marketing and sales, and verification of the social implementation of compact EVs.

Beautiful, exciting, and fun. I would like to keep providing value that appeals to as many people as possible through mobility.
