Here’s an unlikely contestant who has joined the electric vehicle fray to introduce what could be one of their very first automobiles taken to market. Sony, the company known for legendary audio and video electronics, has introduced their Sony Vision-S 02 electric SUV at the Consumer Electronics Show this year as their second prototype.

The Sony Vision-S 02 concept EV (electric vehicle) SUV is a second iteration of the Vision-S 01 concept sedan with larger dimensions and 7-passenger seating placing it between the Tesla Model Y and Model X SUVs while the older Vision-S 01 concept is a sedan that fits in size between the Tesla Model 3 and Model S sedans. The Vision-S 02 SUV has 20-inch wheels, is 192.7-inches long, 76-inches wide, rides on a 119.3-inch wheelbase, and weighs 5,467 pounds.

Sony’s aim here is to have the Vision-S vehicles use their EV/cloud platform to “promote the accommodation of a large variety of lifestyles within a society where values are becoming increasingly diversified.” Sure, that sounds great, but Sony has never produced an automobile. Well, to note, Sony is serious about their automotive endeavor and it shows with the new Vision-S 02 SUV making the best use of AI and robotic technologies along with incorporating their long lineage of audio and visual entertainment throughout the vehicle with things like speakers that work with a streaming service compatible with 360 Reality Audio and an integrated video service called “Bravia Core for Vision-S,” which will share video playback on the large panoramic screens in the Vision-S along with rear seat screens for rear passengers.
