Sony, Honda may set PS5 in their upcoming autonomous electric car

by IANS |

San Francisco, Nov 22 (IANS) Sony Group and Honda Motor are reportedly mulling to fit a PS5 into their upcoming entertainment-focused electric vehicle (EV).

According to Sony Honda Mobility's (joint venture) president Izumi Kawanishi, it is "technologically possible" for Sony to include the PlayStation 5 platform into the car it plans to build with Honda, reports The Verge.

The goal is to "develop a car as hardware that will cater to the entertainment and network we would like to offer," said Yasuhide Mizuno, chairman of Sony Honda Mobility.

"To enjoy the space in your car, you have to make it a space where you don't need to drive," said Kawanishi, and also mentioned it will take some time to make that happen.

The companies joined hands in June to establish the new company that would engage in the sale of high-value-added EVs and provide services for mobility.

In October this year, Sony Group and Honda Motor had announced plans to deliver the first EVs from their joint new company in the U.S. in 2026, and the pre-orders would begin in 2025.

The joint new company aims to bring together the expertise of Honda and Sony.
