Sono Motors releases Sion interior images

LinkedIn +

German mobility provider Sono Motors has unveiled the first interior images of the production version of the Sion as part of an online campaign. An innovative approach to the EV market, the Sion uses solar power cells along the bodywork to charge and generate additional range. The vehicle was also developed as a way to promote sharing services and electromobility throughout the market. The first series therefore leaves the production plant equipped with integrated mobility services and leverages the goSono app to facilitate ridesharing.

Sono Motors has focused on the essentials in the cockpit of the Sion, namely functionality, intuitive operation and connectivity. The Sion interior design takes into account the diversity of the vehicle’s usage with an appropriately robust and hard-wearing interior.

It will be possible to control all the mobility services directly via the central 10in display of the infotainment system with integrated connectivity, as well as via the goSono app. Consumption data and vehicle information can be called up on the main display, where central vehicle functions can also be managed. Data concerning the vehicle’s solar range is made available on the 7in display within the steering wheel area. Smartphones can also be connected to the infotainment system via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

“In conjunction with sharing services and autonomous driving, the digitization of mobility and the increasing interconnectivity of vehicles will play a key part in significantly reducing the number of vehicles, especially in urban settings,” says Roberto Diesel, chief technical officer of Sono Motors. “The avoidance of redundant luxury in the interior equipment and the cost savings through sharing favor the willingness to share the Sion. Thus, the vehicle owners and sharing users actively contribute to the improvement of our climate.”

The vehicle is highly versatile as a sharing, private, or company car, and is also suited to being incorporated into neighborhood concepts and carsharing fleets. The series production version of the family- and commuter-friendly five-door vehicle boasts plenty of footwell and interior space, while the volume of the trunk can be increased from 650 to 1,250 liters of uniform loading space with just a few simple hand movements. A key design element in the cockpit is breSono, a natural filter that improves the interior climate and reduces particulate pollution.

The Sion is the first production vehicle to bring together solar integration, mobility services, and the option of sharing power via a bidirectional charging function. The seamless integration of solar cells into the vehicle’s surface (viSono) enables it to bypass charging infrastructure over short distances. Up to 5,800km (3,600 miles) of free and carbon-neutral range can be generated with viSono each year (dependent on location).

Series production is scheduled to start in the second half of next year, with a total of 260,000 vehicles being produced and costing €25,500 (US$28,000) as standard. Other vehicles based on the Sion platform are planned, including for the international market.

 

Think this is innovative? You won’t want to miss the Next-Generation Interior Design session at this year’s The Future of Automotive Interiors Conference held in Novi, Michigan on October 22-24. The current conference program can be found here.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The problem is something that too few
    folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy
    that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.
    asmr 0mniartist

  2. I every time used to read article in news papers but now as I am a user of internet thus from now I
    am using net for articles or reviews, thanks to web. asmr 0mniartist

  3. Definitely consider that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be
    on the net the easiest factor to have in mind of. I say
    to you, I certainly get irked even as other folks consider issues that they just don’t recognize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you asmr 0mniartist

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Hi there it’s me, I am also visiting this site daily,
    this site is truly pleasant and the people are genuinely sharing nice thoughts.

  6. Howdy fantastic website! Does running a blog similar to
    this take a great deal of work? I have virtually no understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask.

    Cheers!

  7. Everything published was actually very logical.
    However, what about this? what if you were to write a killer post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid., but
    suppose you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Sono Motors releases Sion interior images | Automotive Interiors World is kinda vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or
    two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  8. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short
    article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting
    comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  9. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing,
    therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail, thus that thing is
    maintained over here.

  30. I have to express my thanks to the writer for rescuing me from this particular scenario. Just after researching throughout the the web and meeting solutions which were not productive, I believed my life was well over. Living without the presence of solutions to the problems you have resolved by means of your entire guide is a critical case, and ones that could have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t noticed your blog.

  31. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  32. Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog
    and in depth information you provide. It’s great to
    come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information. Wonderful
    read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS
    feeds to my Google account.

  33. I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also pay
    a visit this web site on regular basis to get updated from most
    recent news.

  34. Your means of explaining the whole thing in this piece of writing is genuinely pleasant, every one
    be able to without difficulty know it, Thanks a
    lot.

  48. Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that truly knows what they’re discussing on the web. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people ought to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you most certainly have the gift.
