The car has been designed with 330 integrated solar cells built into the whole exterior of the vehicle – on it’s roof, bonnet, sides and rear of the car.

It boasts a range of up to 250km, a 10 inch infotainment screen, LED headlights, and an air filter system using a particular kind of moss – very green indeed!

The Sion Car already has 7,000 reservations for builds, and release date is expected in 2019.

The company responsible – Sono Motors – are young, dynamic, environmentally-conscious, and very German! So maybe think carefully on the manufacturer of your new German motor, as these guys are making new, unprecedented waves in the motor and tech industries. At a retail price of €16,000 euros, or £14,400 sterling, the project has good backing and investment; and has sparked the interest of the public, as they have well exceeded their crowdfunding target, and already have thousands of orders in the pipeline.

One to watch we think!
