Watch Sony Test Drive Its Vision-S Prototype Vehicle on Public Roads
Last year, Sony announced that it was bringing forward plans to make its prototype Vision-S electric vehicle a reality.
Though little has been revealed, especially pertaining to the car's specs, Sony did share a clip of the Vision-S driving alongside a picturesque wintery backdrop.
Sony's foray into the auto industry
Amidst rumors of Apple working on a new electric vehicle, Sony decided to update the world on its own planned foray into the car market with a new video of the Vision-S showcased at this week's CES.
The Vision-S was originally announced at last year's CES. At the time, Sony stated that its electric vehicle prototype was fitted with over 30 of the company's CMOS sensors, and 360˚ Reality Audio, a new automotive entertainment feature from Sony.
The prototype at the trade show came with two 200kW engines giving it the ability to accelerate to 62 MPH (100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds.
Sony Vision-S sneak peek
Aside from that, we still know very little about what's under the hood of Sony's new vehicle.
While dreamers might hope they'll one-up Tesla by adding PS5 functionality to the vehicle alongside full self-driving, Sony revealed last year that the Vision-S only had Level 2 autonomous driving capabilities — though it plans to level up in the future.
Another piece of tech that was also showcased at this week's digital CES event was the Airpeak drone, which makes a brief appearance in the video and was used for the video's panoramic tracking shots. Take a look at the Vision-S in action in the video below.
