More than 7,000 people tested the solar-powered EV Sion by German start-up Sono Motors during last year’s test driving sessions. Now the Munich-based company starts another tour through Europe.
The company seeks to offer test drive sessions in 42 cities in Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland as well as (again) in Germany, France, Austria, Swiss and the Netherlands. So far, Sono Motors received 3,200 pre-orders for the Sion, that are roughly 550 more than last November. Although Sono Motors bets on 5,000 pre-orders, the company assures already now that the Sion is definitely going to get produced. First deliveries are due in summer 2019.
The model features 330 integrated solar cells that are said to produce enough electricity to add around 30 km of range per day in addition to the 250 km it carries in its 30 kWh battery.
