We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of Sion: the world’s first series-produced electric car with solar integration created by the German startup Sono Motors. The compact minivan is set to be released at the end of 2019, and already has many prospective buyers and excited followers behind the brand.
Thomas Hausch, COO at Sono Motors since earlier this year and former Managing Director of Nissan Center Europe, announced plans to make and sell 260,000 vehicles – all of them black. This follows the company’s drive towards mass production, simplicity, and keeping costs low. More than 7,500 customers have already reserved and paid a deposit for their vehicles.
