the vision-S can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 4.5 seconds thanks to two 200 kilowatt motors – located at its front and rear – powering the four-seater car, which weighs 5,180 pounds. sony hasn’t confirmed if it will put the car into production so it remains just a demonstration of its electronic capabilities.
