Sono Motors Unveils The Sion Prototype

The battery itself comes in two versions — a 14.4 kWh pack that will take you 50 miles, or a 30 kWh pack that will take up to 120 miles. In this context, the extra mileage given by the solar power really is a boon. Customers are being given the option of leasing the battery, in a similar way to how battery leasing with the Renault Zoe works, or of buying the battery outright. Their reason for doing this is that Sono expects batteries to have dropped in price by the time Sion is ready for production, and they would like to pass this saving on to customers.
