Honda and Sony confirm joint mobility venture to make electric vehicles – Visordown


Honda has entered an agreement with Sony which will see the two Japanese giants work in conjunction to create electric vehicles. 

The alliance between the two is formalised as Sony Honda Mobility Inc., and has been in the works for a while now. Back in March, we wrote that the agreement between the two was aimed to be finalised this year, and that it would see the vehicles produced by Honda in factories they already own and operate. Additionally, Honda’s role would be on the engineering of the mechanicals of the vehicle itself, while Sony would focus on the consumer’s engagement with the vehicle. 

The press release Sony published confirming the partnership says Sony Honda Mobility “will aim to bring together Honda’s cutting-edge environmental and safety technologies, mobility development capabilities, vehicle body manufacturing technology and after-sales service management experience, with Sony’s expertise in the development and application of imaging, sensing, telecommunication, network and entertainment technologies, to realise a new generation of mobility and services for mobility that are closely aligned with users and the environment, and continue to evolve going forward.”

Sony and Honda intend to have the new company established “within 2022 and to begin the sale of EVs and provision of services for mobility in 2025.”
