Write at the end:
Automotive can be said to be the world’s most complex technology system, technology it not only exists in the requirements of cultural aesthetic design, but also need to meet passenger safety requirements, quality assurance, and then also face different regions and different regulatory requirements, different customer groups and different product performance preferences, and finally need after-sales and service and so on. The most important thing is that the product should be competitively priced, so that sales will rise and profit.
For traditional 3C manufacturers, building a car is not easy, before apple, Dyson are not the end. As a result, Sony’s abandonment of the car has become “justified”.
