TECH BYTE: CES 2022 Spotlights Transportation

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (WDEF) — The Consumer Electronics Show is back in Las Vegas, and better than ever.

CES is in person this year, but because of the recent surge in COVID cases, some companies still decided to attend virtually instead.

Transportation is taking the spotlight at CES this year.

They may not be flying yet, but the future is bright for electric vehicles.

More companies are investing in electric cars, and they’re not necessarily in the car business.

Sony is the latest one to join the EV industry.

The tech company’s CEO announced at CES that it’s launching Sony Mobility Inc. this spring.

There, he showed off their new Vision-S Prototype of Sony’s electric SUV.

General Motors also unveiled a new electric truck in its virtual presentation.

The Chevy Silverado EV can go up to 400 miles on a full charge.

This high tech pickup has plenty of storage space, with a nearly six foot long bed, and even a trunk in the front!

It’ll go into production in the spring of 2023.

GM also announced that it’s on track to invest $35 billion in EV and autonomous vehicles by 2025.

That money will be used to launch more than 30 EVs around the globe in that time.

If you’re in the market for a new car, but torn on what color car you’d like to buy, BMW has a solution for you.

The luxury automaker’s new Flow Electric SUV has a unique feature – it can change colors!

With a push of a button, the SUV can go from white, to black, to several shades of gray.

No word yet if this concept will actually go into production soon.

CES wrapped up on Friday this year, a day early.

Hopefully the coronavirus pandemic won’t interrupt the show again next year.
