    SONY only displayed a logo to tease PlayStation 5, but the Vision-S, SONY’s prototype was rolled out onto the stage at end of the company’s presentation surprising everyone. SONY says that they built the Vision-S, only to demonstrate the way its sensors and other technology can be turned to automotive applications.

    SONY says that the newly developed EV platform body which was made by a famous automobile manufacturer Magna Steyr would be adaptable to coupe, sedan, and SUV body types. They also made some more collaboration with big names such as Nvidia, Continental, Bosch, ZF, and Qualcomm.

    As for the exterior specs, it is 4,895 mm long and 1,900 mm wide. It’s just a little bit smaller than a Tesla Model S but weighs almost 2.5 tons. Although it doesn’t have a revolutionary design as it carries some similarities to other EVs. The front-end resembles Porsche Taycan and the back-end resembles Tesla Model 3 because of it’s large windshield and a sleek back.

    Looks like we are already living in the future !! isn’t it ?

    But Sony isn’t the first tech firm to show interest in the automotive world. Tech giants Apple and Samsung has already evaluated their own autonomous car project.

    Even though SONY’s Vision-S prototype looks cool and futuristic, it is uncertain if it will ever make it into production but all its showcased features will surely make their way in our cars soon.

    Here’s the video link if haven’t seen the Vision-S concept movie.
