Sony looks to be making a late bid for the car market after announcing a bold electric concept car at the recent CES trade show in Las Vegas. Could this Sony autonomous, electric saloon be the car of the future?
TVs, cameras, laptops. And now apparently autonomous electrical cars. Sony, it seems is making a bid for the big time if their latest launch is anything to go by.
The Japanese technology giant revealed their Vision-S concept car to a stunned reaction at the recent CES conference in Las Vegas. The four-door saloon is a bold design and fits somewhere between a prototype and a concept car.
And Sony hinted that they could indeed be looking to expand into the car market.
Sony’s spokesperson Shuhei Yoshida said that: “It’s not an exaggeration to say that Mobile has been the mega-trend of the last decade. I believe the next mega-trend will be mobility.”
The electric car is powered by a pair of 268bhp motors, with a top speed of 149mph and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.
The good-looking car has plenty of in-car features as well. There are in-built widescreen displays on all passenger seats and in-car connectivity with Blackberry and Bosch. And as well as 33 sensors inside and outside the car, the S-Vision is expected to be Playstation Compatible. Not only could this Sony concept be the car of the future, but it could be the most fun one. With the Playstation 5 launch just around the corner, just imagine cruising to Fujairah while playing FIFA 2020!
