Sony Announces Electric Vehicle Division
Since the early days of the pandemic lockdowns, Sony has been selling PlayStation 5s as fast as they are able to manufacture them. Yesterday they announced the launch of a new company, Sony Mobility. This announcement, along with two prototype cars, demonstrates a real commitment to enter the EV car manufacturing business.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) opens today (January 5) in La Vegas and runs for three days. Prior to the opening yesterday, Sony, a major player in the consumer electronics market announced the start of their new company saying that they believe mobility and entertainment go hand in hand.
The company also unveiled a new prototype electric SUV named VISION-S 02—which it will have on exhibit at the trade fair beginning Wednesday. Back in 2020, at the CES trade show, Sony surprised the world with their first EV prototype, the VISION-S EV. This vehicle was viewed two years ago as a PlayStation on wheels, and an experiment. The model car now has an additional two years of testing and refinements.
“The new company will aim to make the best use of AI and robotics technologies, help realize a world where everyone can live in harmony with robots on a daily basis, fill people with emotion, and contribute to society,” Sony said.
