Sony and Honda will begin to release bonus electric vehicles in the United States by 2026

As early as March, Japanese companies Sony and Honda Motor announced the establishment of a joint venture that would focus on the development and release of electric vehicles, and by June, it had acquired the unintentional name Sony Honda Mobile, and this week it became known that the first electric vehicles created by partners would enter the US market in 2026, and would be released at the American enterprises Honda and then reach Japan and Europe.

As Bloomberg explains, SP Director General Yasuhide Mizuno reported that the assembly of cars in American enterprises Honda Motor was due to start in 2025, but clients in the United States would not receive them until 2026. The interaction with clients during the order phase would take place mainly in online form. By the second half of 2026, the supply of electric vehicles to this SP would be set up in Japan ' s home market as well. The next step would be to conquer Europe, but no deadline was specified.

Sony Honda Mobile will try to maximize the use of American-made materials and components in the assembly of its electric vehicles in the United States. As early as January of next year, at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, partners can demonstrate their promising models of electric vehicles — Sony in this regard, not for the first time on this show, shows the prototypes of Vission-S electric vehicles designed to demonstrate the company ' s capacity to equip vehicle systems with modern cameras and multimedia solutions. According to the operating director, Sony Honda Mobile Izumi Kavanisi, the company wants to form a team that will be able to win the foreign market. The SP leadership has planned that one of the company ' s important advantages over competitors will be the software installed on the on-board electric vehicles.

Given that Honda Motor is going to produce traction batteries in the U.S. independently, there will certainly be no problem with access to batteries from the Sony SP. By the second half of the decade, Honda expects to offer solid batteries that will provide a higher charge density and a lower fire risk.
