QUIET, BUT EFFICIENT: Sony GREATLY tests ELECTROMOBILE on Austrian roads

The first electric car of the Japanese company Sony, a concept called VISION-S, was presented a year ago at the then still live CES, and during that time the whole project was quite advanced.

The car of one technology company, especially without prior announcement, quite surprised the public. Sony then explained that this is a concept that aims to show their capabilities and test technologies for autonomous and electric vehicles.

Within a year of its introduction, VISION-S had progressed, and engineers had worked hard on new technologies, sensors and autonomous driving cameras. According to new information, there are a total of 40 special sensors for automatic driving.

Now, the Japanese company said, a new phase of development has begun for VISION-S. Namely, tests have started on public roads in Austria, where Sony and its partners want to evaluate their own technologies and safety solutions installed in this car.

The tests are taking place near Sony’s engineering headquarters in Graz.

At the same time, the progress in technologies that has been achieved since last year was presented at the virtual CES 2021. Of the specific characteristics, VISION-S will have two electric motors with a total power of 536 hp, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds, and a top concept speed of 240 km / h.

More detailed information about the battery, range, as well as the possible start of production or sales, have not been published.
