HONDA has partnered with Sony to make electric cars that are more entertaining for passengers than its top competitor, Tesla.

The new joint company’s president went on to make a jab at Tesla, saying Elon Musk’s company: “Is not providing any [individually branded] content services.”

Kawanishi also said in his interview with Financial Times: “Sony has content, services, and entertainment technologies that move people.

“We are adapting these assets to mobility, and this is our strength against Tesla.”

Kawanishi added that Playstation 5 capability is “technologically possible” within future Sony Honda Mobility vehicles.

Playstation 5 Honda gaming would easily surpass the quality of Tesla’s in-vehicle video games.

Tesla currently offers drivers 21 different video games, but its titles are vintage or modern selections that aren’t graphically complex.

Tesla says: “Depending on the game, you may need to use the steering wheel buttons or a USB controller to play arcade games [within your car.]

Honda will also use Sony’s technology in areas like sensors to develop its vehicles’ autonomous [self-driving] driving capabilities.

Once a Sony Honda Mobility car is autonomous, a driver will have more flexibility to enjoy their vehicle’s entertainment offerings.

Tesla is currently testing the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta through more than 160,000 of its cars today.

Tesla says its Full Self-Driving beta: “Identifies stop signs and traffic lights and automatically slows your car to a stop on approach, with your active supervision.”

FSD additionally provides automatic steering on city streets.

In December, Elon Musk’s car company will release the newest version of its Full Self-Driving beta.

Sony Honda Mobility is slated to make its first vehicle deliveries in early 2026, The Verge reports.
