The new Sono Sion already has a price in Germany. The firm has announced what the new solar model will cost, an interesting option among electric cars that will flood the streets in 2024. The brand has thousands of orders already confirmed.
Sono Motors Sales of the new solar electric car with which it intends to flood European streets and highways have already begun. The manufacturer accumulates no less than 20,000 firm orders of a model that will take more than a year to reach the market, since now it has been known that its production assigned to Valmet in Finland will start in the second half of 2023.
Despite this condition, it can be said that one of the first solar cars intended for the mass market has become a real success. The 20,000 customers who have formalized their reservation have paid a deposit of 2,000 Euros to have a unit of this practical model that will be added to the offer of electric cars with unique characteristics. And although it seems that it is a utility, the Sono Sion has the measurements of a compact, as you can see below:

I am Zion
The solar car has a capacity for five seats and an interior made of ecological materials, without luxuries or boasts. Like the interior that, with a minivan format, does not have a very striking design either. And it is that the Sono Sion stands out for having a body full of solar cells; specifically, with 456 with which you can increase autonomy between 17 and 64 kilometers per week, the latter value in the best conditions.
Even so, the manufacturer points out that the owners will need to recharge its lithium iron phosphate battery, which has a capacity of 54 kWh, and with which it has a range of 305 kilometers, a quarter of an equivalent electric one. The system is equipped with an on-board charger that supports a power of 75 kW, even being able to dedicate up to 11 kW to charge electrical devices or power them during use.
