Mizuno didn't give much explanation behind the new nomenclature. However, he said that the word indicates the experience of mobility that the company wants to build and offer to its customers. The prototype that was shown at the CES 2023 appears very identical to the previously showcased Vision-S prototypes. It's hard to tell if there is any difference at all.

Speaking about the Vision-S, the electric concept car previews a sleek and stylish premium sedan. It gets a clean look at the front and side as well. The electric sedan gets sleek LED headlamps at the front, with a slim glass panel running through the width of the car. The lower front bumper appears sculpted. Moving to the side profile, the car gets unusual-looking wheels that appear covered with metal panels. There are no conventional door handles or wing mirrors. In place of the traditional wing mirrors, the car gets sleek cameras.
