Is Sony really going to build a car?
The Sony Vision S hits the road
A few months ago, Sony unveiled a new electric car concept called the Vision S and I'm gonna keep it 100, as my friend Daniel from Inglewood would put it, I thought it was just a marketing stunt. But I was wrong because the new Vision S has actually just begun public road tests in Europe.
Sony built the prototype in Graz, at the Magna Steyr factory where the G-Wagen is constructed, and then they brought the concept back to Tokyo for further development.
We're probably going to see more cars like this one in the future because the impact of technology in cars is becoming increasingly important as most cars are basically computer on wheels these days, with a trillion ADAS and infotainment systems and electric powertrains.
