Sony is one of the biggest names in the electronics industry. We’re willing to bet that all of you reading this story own more than one Sony-branded item. This kind of power and success has tempted Sony to toy with the idea of entering the increasingly competitive electric car market, or so it seems. The difference with Sony and their Sony Vision-S Sedan is that they’re not going at it alone.
This collaborative effort behind this electric vehicle is meant to showcase some of Sony’s multiple accessories mixed in with technologies from BlackBerry and Bosch. The car features numerous sensors both inside and out to aid in autonomous driving functions and keep everyone on board in check. There’s a massive screen that serves as the infotainment and interior comfort control center. The Sony Vision-S Sedan electric sedan concept is a four seater and has a large glass roof.
Styling-wise, everyone agrees that there are strong hints of Porsche Taycan especially up front mixed in with a few other cues from the Lucid Motors Air. As far as performance is concerned, Sony did not elaborate much but it would seem that the Vision-S Sedan will have two 268-horsepower or 200-kilowatt electric motors. This will be good enough to launch the car to 100 km/h in 5 seconds.
Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said: “This prototype embodies our contribution to the future of mobility,” which leads us to believe that the car itself, the Sony Vision-S Sedan electric sedan concept, will never see production.
