Sony and Honda, the two powerful Japanese corporations, formally teamed together earlier this year to compete with Tesla in the electric vehicle (EV) market.
The joint project will be introduced for the first time during CES 2023, which will take place in Las Vegas.
The transition of cars from internal combustion engines to electric ones has ushered in a new era in which the automobile serves as both a mode of transportation and a source of entertainment.
Any EV that will soon be sold has a sizable display in the middle that can be used for content delivery and navigation.
When Tesla adds new games to its cars, even the Technoking Elon Musk can’t contain his delight.
The business stated earlier this year that it hoped to make its infotainment system compatible with the Steam gaming and that future CPUs would boost the system’s performance to rival that of the PlayStation 5.
Although it is doubtful that the Musk’s remarks motivated Honda and Sony to collaborate and create an EV, their respective roles have been made abundantly clear from the beginning.
Sony is skilled in providing experiences to people, while Honda will contribute its technological know-how to create a high-quality electrical car. They will be in motion inside a vehicle this time.
Izumi Kawanishi, President of the joint venture Sony Honda Mobility, told The Financial Times that, technically speaking, Sony could even embed the PlayStation 5 inside the vehicle.
Instead, the corporation will go a step further and provide passengers with all-around entertainment, allowing for content consumption while driving.
The big tech companies are developing autonomous driving technology because they understand that for the experience to be full, a person does not need to drive.
