I generally love Sony products. Ever since the Walkman.

This could be very interesting... I see a lot of Taycan and Tesla inspired design, but in general doesn't look terrible, too much screen, but should be interesting to see if this could become a part of Sony's future whether they be making an actual vehicle or providing parts/tech for other manufacturers.

Donít forget that Sony used to be what Apple is today. Maybe they are trying to beat Apple to market since there have long been rumors of an Apple EV. I donít think there is one, but who knows.

If it's a Sony, you would gradually lose functions at each firmware or OTA updates. Not unlike a PS4

I thought they make it as a demo for selling their car technologies (like Bosch) rather than actually making a car
