  • Sion – a solar camper

    Boot dimensions:
    Length ⤢163Width ↔124Height ↕78

    The development of this car has been terminated by Sono Motors in February 2023.

    “A spacious electric car with a range of up to 305 kilometres that charges itself through the power of the sun.” – this says it all! It is the cheapest electric car out there and on top of that, it has built-in solar panels that can charge the car and your appliances. Or even other cars and things around you.

    There isn’t much information available beyond the prototype specs on Sono Motors, but the Sion is looking very promising as a camping car. It isn’t the biggest – but it’s big enough (about as long as the short version of the Caddy). What sets it apart is its ability to charge itself – if you are driving in a sunny country, you could add 112-245km to your range for free!

    The boot length is 163cm – not that much for sleeping,  but with the front seats pushed forward, you could get 180cm of actual length.

    It won’t dazzle you with comfort – it wouldn’t be able to keep its low price tag, but the comfort and luxury-seeking crowd isn’t Sion’s target audience. It’s the environmentally conscious, practicality over comfort and EV-enthusiastic buyer that will find all this in the car. 

    As it is still a prototype, its dimensions might change – we’ll keep it updated as much as we can!
