Honda Partners with Sony On Future Electric Vehicles

May 10th, 2022 by

Sony Vision-S Electric Vehicle Concept

Sony has been an electronics powerhouse with a reputation for innovation for decades, and it has recently made waves with the announcement of a collaboration with Honda. The electronics company had previously released two all-electric concept vehicles, including the Vision-S 01 sedan and the Vision-S 02 crossover SUV. While it has had the drive to move into the auto industry, it has lacked the necessary infrastructure and capabilities. By intelligently forming a joint venture, New Company, with Honda, the electronics company now can act on its plans.

Sony and Honda bring unique elements to the table with their new venture. For example, Honda’s automotive expertise in supply chain logistics, sales, production, and manufacturing will be vital to the venture’s success. Sony plans to bring tech innovations in telecommunications, sensing, networks, imaging, and infotainment to the mix. The first model from New Company is scheduled to be released in 2025. Details about this all-electric model are not yet known, but it may have close similarities to Sony’s concept vehicles.

Honda already has a few hybrid models for sale under its brand, and more electrified options are scheduled to be released in the coming years. The automaker is already collaborating with GM to develop a new SUV with their Ultium EV architectural platform.
