Sono Motors SEV Garners 20,000 Reservations

The start of production for the Sion Solar Electric Vehicle (SEV) is planned for the second half of 2023.

The Munich-based solar mobility OEM Sono Motors announced it reached 20,000 private reservations of its Sion, with an average advance down-payment of about €2,000 net. At an expected net sales price point of just €25,126 – the Sion has the potential to become the world’s first Solar Electric Vehicle (SEV) for the masses, the company says.

The start of production is planned for the second half of 2023 through contract manufacturing in Finland. Sono Motors says its partner Valmet Automotive has extensive expertise in manufacturing for high-tech OEMs. After a ramp-up period, the partners aim to produce approximately 257,000 Sion vehicles within seven years.
