Sion – "Endless Mobility"
Fully Charged recently meet with Sono Motors, the German start-up founded in 2012, which develops an all-electric solar-powered electric car.
The upcoming Sion model, is a small but very practical car with real-world range of some 250 km (155 miles) and enough solar panels embedded on all flat panels that could replenish up to 30 km (18 miles) during the sunny day.
Inside you can find a lot of space, foldable seats (three independent in the back and passenger seat in the front), which turns Sion into kind of van. There is option to take trailer. The cool things is that Sion has about 3 kW electric outlet to power external devices, as well as Type 2 inlet (beside CCS Combo) dedicated for V2G/V2V purposes.
"When we heard Sono Motors was going to be in the Netherlands, we jumped at the chance of seeing this German company and their ground-breaking solar panel covered Sion.And Jonny got a test drive."
Sono Sion spec:
- at least 35 kWh battery
- 255 km (159 miles) of range (WLTP) – simulated
- 120 kW and 290 Nm electric motor
