I must admit I thought this was vaporware, but it seems you can now order the solar panel-endowed Sono Sion for delivery in 2022.

Bit of a tongue in cheek pic in the blurb - recharging a Tesla  hysteria

Interesting to see how it performs on general release - could be very interesting for low day to day mileage users.

Still looks to me like the offspring of a coming together between the Audi A2 and the BMW i3, but I guess ultimately it's a small 2 box 5 door hatchback and there's not much you can really do otherwise design-wise.

By next year, will 25000 be a competitive price I wonder? 250km range, is that realistic from a 34kWh battery?

Getting a bit sceptical now. Have been watching development for over 2 years now with original promise that cars would be rolling off the production line in 2021 now pushed back to 2022.

Re: Poor bloody Brits ( we don't all hate the EU)
I wrote to them to ask about the UK in their plans
reply below:-


Dear ***

Thank you very much for your kind email.

I must admit that I had to smile when I saw the subject of your email. We do not hate you neither. Actually, all the british people I met in my life were pretty friendly and funny persons.

In the first production cycle we will not produce a right-hand drive version of the Sion. We hope to possibly also offer a right-hand drive model in the future. As we are still working hard to get the Sion on the streets of the left-hand driven countries of Europe, it is difficult to tell you a timescale.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
 
With kind regards from Munich.....

Await further updates
