Introduced last year at CES in Las Vegas, Sony’s electric sedan has come a long way since then. As proof, the Japanese brand presents a video of the prototype in action on the road, filmed by drones.
Despite the Covid crisis, the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) will take place this year. But this one will only be digital. On display in particular, the Japanese electronics giant will present an evolution of its 100% electric sedan concept unveiled last year, the Vision-S concept.
Autonomous driving level 4
As a reminder, the concept was developed to showcase Sony’s technological advances in the field of mobility and in particular autonomous driving.
In this case, if last year the vehicle was on track to acquire level 2 of autonomy thanks to 33 sensors, today Sony integrates no less than 40 sensors with the objective of level 4.
We are no longer simply talking about a technological showcase, but a perfectly functional vehicle that is up to date, developed in partnership with Magna Steyr, but also Bosch, Continental, NVIDIA and Qualcomm.
On the video, we see that the design of the concept remains unchanged. Same observation on board where the digital screens take up the entire width of the dashboard. A 100% touch-sensitive system including, in particular, rearview screens. Small update all the same, with the addition of a voice assistant, gesture control as well as 5G connectivity and video games, in particular.
It remains to be seen if the mechanics have evolved. There was talk last year of two electric motors generating a combined power of 536 hp, allowing the concept to cut from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 240 km / h.
