Sony tests Vision-S prototype on public roads

January 12, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

In the middle of last year, the Sony Vision-S electric car went from being a simple prototype to something that the company says is close to reality.

Recall that in July, Sony announced that it plans to begin testing its car on public roads by the end of 2020. As promised, the company took the car for testing.

While Sony did not reveal new information about the electric vehicle in its 2021 CES keynote, Sony said it began testing the electric vehicle in Europe in December and shared a video of the electric car driving along scenic Austrian roads – the company’s recently announced Airpeak drone also appears in the video.

When Sony first unveiled the S-Vision at CES 2020, it said it had built the car to showcase its technology to automotive companies. The prototype we saw at the show had two 200 kW engines and had the ability to accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds. At the time, Sony said the car also had Level 2 autonomous driving technology, but plans were made to make it more autonomous in the future.
