A bold move by Sony if they follow through with it. They'll probably have growing pains, like Tesla, learning to build cars.

A Tesla clone, but knowing Sony, they will design their own proprietary plug just to be different!
Good thing this thing will never see the road.
Sony = evil!

Traditional car companies will be dead or absorbed by technology companies in the next 10 years. Companies like Sony, Apple, and startups will join Tesla and make the traditional car obsolete.

It's just a platform to show off their car electronic products. It's the same as a condo developer constructing a set of small show suites with appliances - it doesn't mean that they're going into the appliance business.

So, instead of the Walkman, now there is the Driveman?

Exciting but absent any talk of actually coming to market, I would think they are just showcasing their suite of car technology. Time will tell whether they actually want to get into the low-margin automotive game, but I doubt it.

And switch the locations of the accelerator and brake pedals and make out go through 14 menus to change the cabin temperature. I can remember when Sony was a will respected brand, but now, life is too short to put up with their user hostile design.

My impression is that Sony is an "over the hill" company. Now it wants to build an electric car? I'll bet a paycheck it never makes it to mass market...

I could see them selling tech that goes into the cars - Cameras , displays and other electronics;
Wireless V2V sharing? just don't stand in the middle?
