Sony has just unveiled a new vehicle. Featured at CES 2020, the new concept car comes in the form of a sleek sedan by the name of Vision-S. While this news may certainly come as a surprise, Sony does have a long track record of opening up new product categories to its offerings, like cellphones, cameras and even the infamous Walkman.

According to sources, the tech company partnered with industry heavyweights Continental, Bosch, Genetex, Magna and Nvidia for the Vision-S’ build. It isn’t exactly clear, however, if this means the Japanese company will be venturing into auto-manufacturing. Sources have speculated, instead, that the prototype may be a way for Sony to demonstrate how it could supply new technologies to carmakers, similar to how Apple‘s latest iPhone Pro currently uses Sony’s camera sensors. Furthermore, a short “concept movie” by Sony notes that “this content and prototype vehicle are intended to illustrate our future concepts.”
