Sony and Honda to Spin Their EV partnership Into a Separate Company

The Sony and Honda EV spinoff will be independent of the “mother” companies


  • The joint venture was announced last March.

  • Honda has said it was going full-EV by 2040.


Honda will help Sony, and vice versa, under a new joint venture that will see both companies create, develop, and sell electric vehicles. It appears as though this association will fly under its own banner and become a separate entity.

Sony and Honda Pairing Up to Build EVs

The new joint venture will combine Honda’s mass-production expertise with Sony’s mobility service technologies. The resulting product will not be sold under either Honda’s or Sony’s banner.

“We shared the view that it is better to make the joint venture independent, in the long run, rather than putting it under Sony or Honda,” Sony President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said as reported by Engadget.

Yoshida added: “Mobility is becoming more of a service. We want to contribute to the evolution of mobility by providing the basis with network functions.”

Further details on the venture are all but non-existent. No name has been announced, nor have any for future prototypes, and least of all, production dates.
