The Solar Sion
The development of the first solar car prototype was accomplished in close cooperation with supporters from all over the world. Within a year, Sono Motors collected over 850,000€ (961,559.95 US) through a crowdfunding campaign. Crowdfunding, by definition, is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people. Usually this happens through the internet.
The Sion is the first-in-series solar car, which recharges its battery through the sun – up to 30 kilometers per day.
The Sion Solar car, batteries not included
Starting in 2019, Sono Motors will offer the battery for a monthly rate. You will have the opportunity to rent or lease the battery, or make a one time purchase. If purchased today, the time purchase would cost you less than 4000€ or 4,525.02 US. What is the reason why Sono Motors excludes the battery? This gives them the opportunity to upgrade the battery. Also they upgrade the battery components and offer you the latest available upgraded battery for the best price.
