Bottom line, we mostly liked the Sony Honda MobilityAfeelaconcept car’s interior. It delivered the multimedia experience we expected, with car controls that (yoke aside) are fairly conventional and straightforward. Like the rest of the car, the Afeela concept’s interior strikes us as realistic and producible. Sony plans to take orders in 2025 with initial customer deliveries in 2026, and we should see something closer to a production car long before then. Aside from some desperately needed rear headroom, we’ll be happy if there aren’t too many changes from the concept.
The Nissan Max-Out adopts a retro-futuristic design celebrating some of the automaker’s more notable past designs while also giving a hint at what’s to come as it moves forward with its $18 billion, five-year electrification strategy.
Fans of the classis sci-fi adventure, Tron, might recognize some of the design cues of the Max-Out, starting with the way the convertible uses lighting on the nose, tail and even the wheels and headrests.

After several interesting electric-vehicle prototypes over the few years, Sony made its EV ambitions, announced a new EV brand called AFEELA. Technically, the new EV concept comes from Sony Honda Mobility, a joint venture between the two Japanese companies. Together, they revealed the prototype of a beautiful new all-electric sedan that they plan to sell, perhaps as early as 2026.
The concept will be part of a new brand called AFEELA, but we don’t yet know what name the production version will use. AFEELA plans to start taking orders in 2025 and expects to start deliveries in Canada and the US in the spring of 2026.
AFEELA models will also be sold in Japan and Europe. A SUV, a second sedan, and an minivan are under consideration by SHM.
The first prototype AFEELA presented at CES sports 45 cameras and sensors placed inside and outside the vehicle.
ZEM is an electric vehicle designed by a group of college students at the Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Netherlands. It absorbs more carbon dioxide than it emits while it drives.

An innovative technology called direct air capture, “traps” carbon dioxide (CO2) into a filter. Companies have been using this air-cleaning technology on large installations. The ZEM (zero emission mobility) team have adopted and implement the technology on a smaller scale so it could be used on their electric vehicle.
While driving, air moves through the car into the specially designed air-cleaning filter. This captures and stores CO2, allowing clear air to flow out of the vehicle, compensating for the total emissions over the lifetime of the vehicle.
Made from 3D-printed recycled plastics, its designers say it’s the world’s most sustainable car.
