The Sono Motors Sion began life as a crowd funded vehicle with ambitious aims back in 2012 while the founders were still in school. The vehicle has 7.5 sq mtrs of in-built solar panels and generates power directly from the sun. The car incorporates some very innovative features such as the natural moss air filtration system, the ability to charge from vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to grid, an inbuilt domestic plug for powering external devices and designed from the outset to be fully functional as a car sharing vehicle. Production is due to commence from the Trollhättan production line in Sweden in September 2021. No news of it coming to Australia but it would be an ideal car for the surfeit of sunshine many places in Australia enjoy.
