Sony is a dominant force in the realm of technological advancement, and whether they take on a gaming platform, home entertainment center, or quality-of-life accessory, innovation has always seemed to be the company’s calling card. Now, a recent announcement from the legendary Japanese manufacturer has left the automotive world (and the rest of us, for that matter) in a state of shock and awe.

With CES 2020 as the grand stage for its debut, Sony revealed that the Vision-S — a groundbreaking next-gen electric vehicle — is just over the horizon. This marks the first time that Sony has taken its technological expertise to the automotive medium, opting to create a platform from the ground up, instead of adapting a donor vehicle to suit its needs. The Vision-S arrives as a sleek, high-society sedan built around three essential pillars: safety, entertainment, and adaptability. Throughout its sculpted body, 33 automotive-grade sensors (including that of Sony’s iconic CMOS) provide cocoon-like protection, as well as 360-degree views of the Vision’s exterior alongside radar, ultrasonic, and Solid-State LiDAR integration. This accents the car’s advanced driver’s assistance suite, which can sense and adapt its performance to surrounding conditions, as well as monitor the driver’s fatigue, concentration, and overall sensitivity. While no information has been released on the vehicle’s power plant, Sony has revealed that it will run on a bespoke EV platform that was designed exclusively for the company’s impending models. We’ve only scratched the surface of the Vision-S, so head over to the company’s website to learn more.
