The concept car resembles a cross between the Porsche Taycan and the Lucid Air.

The list of the companies involved in working on the concept does not include any automakers, but there are many companies involved in creating various high-tech components. For example, colleagues from Nvidia, Bosch, ZF, Continental and Qualcomm helped Sony to develop the Vision-S. The Japanese teamed up with Magna Steyr’s engineers to design the concept platform.

The car’s designers do not go into technical details: it is only known that the model is equipped with two electric engines with a power output of 270 hp each, which allows the Vision-S to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds at a maximum speed of 240 km/h.

The four-seater is equipped with a system of 33 sensors that give it the ability to navigate independently in space. The driver's workplace consists of several monitors, including side screens that transmit images from the rear-view cameras. It is also stated that the Vision-S has been provided with a spatial sound system: speakers are integrated even in the seats.

It is not yet clear whether Sony has plans for mass production or Vision-S will remain an abstract concept in a new industry for the company. Perhaps, the final stage of the new car’s development will be its appearance on virtual tracks in Gran Turismo Sport.
