The first electric vehicles from the joint venture will be available for purchase in 2025.
The EV Alliance
Japanese electronics and auto giants Sony and Honda have entered into a joint venture to manufacture and sell electric vehicles, they announced on Friday. While they have not finalized the agreement, both companies have signed a memorandum of understanding expressing their intent.
This year, Sony and Honda plan to establish a company to design, develop, and eventually sell EV models. While Honda will handle the manufacturing, Sony will create a “mobility service platform” for the vehicles.
“This alliance aims to bring together Honda's mobility development capabilities, vehicle body manufacturing technology and after-sales service management experience cultivated over many years, with Sony's expertise in the development and application of imaging, sensing, telecommunication, network, and entertainment technologies, to realize a new generation of mobility and services that are closely aligned with users and the environment, and continue to evolve going forward,” the statement said.
In 2025, the first models will be for sale.
The union will draw on the combined expertise of the electronics conglomerate and car manufacturer dating back to the 1940s.
