    We usually associate the Sony brand with the Walkman music player, the Vaio laptops, Bravia TVs or the PlayStation gaming console. While the tech giant does have a bunch of new products to show at CES this year from its typical area of expertise, the Tokyo-based company is also displaying something only very few expected – a car.

    The Vision-S is 4,895 mm long and 1,900 mm wide: just a little bit smaller than a Tesla Model S, in other words. We don’t know the capacity of the electric batteries, but we do know the Vision-S is, like most high-power electric cars, no lightweight: it weighs 2,350 kg.

    "Created primarily to showcase what Sony can bring to the table in terms of automotive technologies"
    "That being said, the company didn’t say a word about the chances (if there are any) of transforming the concept into a production vehicle"


    Its purdy though!

    It looks like a 'me-too' Tesla. The unique angle of an electronics / appliance OEM should be to bring a more appliance-like vehicle. Not yet another car. Dyson (vacuum cleaner) missed that opportunity too.
