Sony and Honda will Sell Electric Vehicles by 2025

Honda and Sony will be ready to sell EVs by 2025.

Honda and Sony Corporation announced a tentative agreement this week to create a new company focused on mobility and the sale of exclusively electric vehicles. This is not the first time we have heard of this agreement between the two players, Honda and Sony, who already announced this strategic alliance last March.

Unsurprisingly, this union will bring together the strengths of each entity, with Honda responsible for providing manufacturing capacity, mobility development and after-sales management experience, while Sony will complement Honda with its expertise in the development and application of imaging, sensing, telecommunication, networking and entertainment technologies.

The new company, named Sony Honda Mobility Inc. will seek to realize a new generation of mobility and mobility services that are closely aligned with users and the environment, and that continues to evolve into the future. The new company is expected to be established later in 2022 with the goal of commercializing the sale of electric vehicles and the provision of mobility services starting in 2025.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, it’s too early to tell if the two concept vehicles shown by Sony, the Vision-S 01 sedan and the Vision-S 02 SUV will be outright approved for production. Honda’s input could change that.

Honda, which has been slow to consider going electric, is looking to make up for lost time, especially since announcing its agreement with General Motors and its Ultium platform to sit underneath two electric crossovers coming in 2024, one for the Honda Prologue and another at Acura, the name of which has yet to be disclosed.
