Last year at CES, Sony rocked the auto industry by unveiling a prototype electric sedan called the Vision-S. Today, on January 23, the Car and Driver agency, relying on a representative of the company, announced that the Japanese did not plan to launch this concept into a series.

Recall that not so long ago, the Japanese company brought the Vision-S to road tests, as a result, Sony fans had hope for a serial modification of the prototype, but now it turned out that neither mass production nor sales of the car are planned.

According to interlocutors of the foreign agency, the Japanese automaker will continue to improve the Vision-S concept only as a stand for future automotive technologies, especially in terms of safety and autonomous driving.

It is worth saying that at the moment the Vision-S prototype has a second level autopilot, which includes adaptive cruise control, self-parking systems and automatic lane change. At the same time, the Japanese company plans to equip the concept with a fourth-level autopilot system. The Vision-S, in particular, has a sophisticated stereo system with a unique audio system, 5G hotspot and more.

In addition, some time ago it was noted that the electric car BMW i4 is undergoing final tests. It should be emphasized that the premiere of the German automaker’s electric car should take place at the end of this year.
