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