Sony debuts its 1st electric car concept Vision-S

Sony could offer products beyond TVs, speakers and gaming consoles.

Sony, the maker of consumer electronics products that branched out into movies and TV contents in recent years, is now branching out into a new category for the company: electric cars.

The Japanese company has just introduced its very first electric car, Vision-S, at a press conference to mark the start of the annual Consumer Electronics Show this year.

The company’s electric car sports the most advanced qualities of an automobile at the moment. The most striking feature of the car is its in-car entertainment system, which highlights what Sony is known for: entertainment.

During a press conference at the CES 2020 in Las Vegas, Sony President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida told the audience that the Vision-S features the company’s proprietary audio technology, 360 Reality Audio, which allows for a deep and immersive audio experience for drivers and passengers via the speakers inside the car that are fitted into each seat.

The Sony Vision-S’s panoramic screen built into its dashboard is also the most stunning feature of the vehicle that will instantly capture anyone’s attention.

Yoshida also highlighted during Sony’s press conference that the Vision-S has 33 sensors.

To create the concept vehicle, Sony has teamed up with a total of 11 companies with different specializations including chipmakers Nvidia and Qualcomm, car parts makers Benteler, Bosch, Continental, Magna and ZF, as well as tech companies Here Technologies, Gentex, Elektrobit and BlackBerry, which all offer software solutions for the next generation of cars.
