One of the important cooperation partners selected by Sony was Magna Steyr, the automobile component supplier based in Austria. The "Vision S" has two engines and should be able to accelerate from zero to a hundred km/h in 4.8 seconds. The car has 3D sensors on the outside designed to monitor traffic as well as a complete entertainment system. It is also striking that the vehicle has a display extending from door to door.
The new initiative of Sony's "Vision S" should contribute to enhanced safety, reliability, comfort and entertainment in the field of mobility. The first prototype vehicle features imaging and sensor technologies from Sony as well as on-board software regulated with the help of AI, telecommunications and cloud technologies. In addition to the Austrian component supplier Magna Steyr, major German suppliers also played a major role in the development of the car.
