Both companies have signed a memorandum of understanding outlining their intention to establish a joint venture through which they plan to participate in the joint development and sales of battery electric vehicles (EV) and commercialize together with the provision of mobility services.
The two companies will proceed with negotiations to execute several final binding agreements, including a joint development agreement and a joint venture agreement, with the goal that this be available in 2022.
This alliance aims to bring together Honda’s mobility development capabilities, vehicle body manufacturing technology and after-sales service management expertise with Sony’s expertise in the development and application of imaging, sensing, telecommunications and , networks and entertainment, to achieve a new generation of mobility.
Sales of the first EV model from the new joint brand are expected to begin in 2025.
