• Honda and Sony, part of Sony’s Honda Mobility joint venture, are planning to get into the electric car business together.
  • SOny Honda Mobility President Izumi Kawanishi made this clear in an interview with a British business newspaper Financial Times what it aims to use Sony’s entertainment element to take on Tesla in the electric car market.
  • Sony’s catalog of content, services and technology will be part of the upcoming electric car, which is slated for release in 2025, leaving the door open for a PS5-enabled car in just a few years.

It feels like just two weeks ago Car and driverwith Ezra Dyer offered car companies to revitalize its electric vehicle offerings and make things a little weirder. After all, power and acceleration are easy to come by in the world of electric cars, leaving key personality traits a tantalizing area for growth. Now, Sony Honda Mobility, a joint venture agreement between the carmaker and the tech giant, is discussing the possibility of incorporating Sony’s technology into the company’s vehicles.

In an interview with Financial Times, Sony Honda Mobility President Izumi Kawanishi said, “Sony has content, services and entertainment technology that move people. We adapt these assets to mobility, and that is our strength against Tesla.” He also said that the company plans to adjust the way the future electric car is assembled and will “develop the car as a piece of equipment that will serve the entertainment and network that we would like to offer.” So there’s no PS5 console on the dashboard, but there may be a possibility of a PS5, which Kawanishi says is “technologically possible.”

Kawanishi gave Tesla a light slap as he said Financial Times that the electric car maker “does not provide any content services” when it comes to entertainment.

Sony is known for producing a wide range of technology, including speakers and displays, which makes us hope for a top-notch infotainment system in the new brand’s upcoming products. At CES in January 2022. Sony showed off its Vision-S 02 concept. The Vision-S 02 is a seven-passenger crossover that’s similar in size to a Tesla Model Y, and it allows rear-seat passengers to play PlayStation games via a remote connection to their home console. If a version of this concept goes into production as Sony Honda Mobility’s first production car, based on the CEO’s statements, it’s possible that the company will retain this feature, giving rear seat passengers access to PS5 games on the go.

This isn’t the first time the company has made video games available in its cars. Tesla and Mercedes-Benz have already done thisand both companies eventually decided to remove this functionality from the vehicles while they were in motion.
