10,000 Sion is worth some €214 million, according to Sono Motors. 87% of the orders come from the DACH region

Sono Motors reached a milestone of 10,000 paid reservations for its solar-powered Sono Sion electric car, over a year before the start of production in the second-half of 2020.

It's two times more than in June 2018 and currently translates into potential revenues of €214 million ($239 million).

Reservations come from more than 20 countries, but around 87% were placed in the DACH region (German-speaking area) - Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

"Straight to 10,000! 10,000 people made a choice. A choice for a sustainable mobility. With an exceptional team, strong partners and a great community we shape the future!"
