The joint venture is a 50/50 split between the two and it's called Sony Honda Mobility. The pre-orders and production will start in 2025 in Honda's 12 US factories.
It's quite possible that the first models won't be intended for mass production and it's still unclear if they would reach European shores. We'll hopefully get more details on that as time approaches.
