About Sono Sion

GENERAL
The Sono Sion is an all-electric car from the German start-up Sono Motors. The prototype was unveiled in July 2017. The production is expected to begin in 2019. The Sion is a self-charging electric car. Integrated solar cells charge the battery throughout the day, making the car a mobile charging station.
EXTERIOR
What makes the exterior truly exceptional are the solar cells located on both sides, the roof, the rear, and the hood. The Sion’s standout efficiency and long life are guaranteed through the use of lightweight components. The exterior, for example, consists primarily of highly durable polycarbonate.
INTERIOR
Simply put, the Sion’s interior has been designed to be as clear and straightforward as possible. The cabin features our natural air-filter system, breSono, alongside the vehicle’s infotainment system that comes with a 10-inch display.
CHARGING
viSono technology is based on the idea of capturing energy from the sun. The solar cells in the car’s body mean that the Sion can easily charge its battery by itself throughout the day. The result is that the Sion can generate up to 30 kilometers’ extra range per day, completely free of charge. Of course you can also drive the Sion at night. The company uses highly efficient, monocrystalline silicon cells for the solar modules. A total of 330 cells generate a maximum power of 1,204 watts with 24 percent efficiency. This means you can also swap the modules simply and without a problem.
V2G
Thanks to the bidirectional charging technology, the Sion can draw and store energy and, moreover, share it too. A regular, household electrical plug (SchuKo) can be used to power all common electronic devices up to 3.7 kW. The Sion can deliver even more power when using a Type 2 plug. You will then be able to power other electric cars and heavy duty devices with up to 11 kW. Combined with viSono, the Sion can be your power plant on wheels.
