Sono Motors has a car filled with solar panels on the body. That way make Sion as the first electric car that can recharge itself. Here are the complete specifications of Sion as quoted from Inhabitat on Friday, July 28, 2018.

1. Exterior Design
For design, Sion is not too different from other small city car design. What makes it different is in the body where there are solar panels are implanted. And Sion is claimed to be very efficient, thanks to the design and lightweight components used. The exterior is made of polycarbonate that is rustproof, scratch resistant. Its solar panels not only mounted on the side of the body but also on the car's roof with a transparent color.

2. Interior
Going inside, Sono Motors does not want to make Sion look complicated. The most interesting is the breSono air filter system as well as the entertainment system using a 10 inch screen. The air filters are custom-made and mounted on the car dashboard. This filter can filter up to 20 percent dust and can help to regulate moisture in the Sion cabin. Not to worry, it doesn't need special care about this filter. As well as the design of information screen for the driver (MID) is also made very simple just contains how much speed and where the car battery has reached to recharge.

3. Technology 
Sion is equipped with 330 integrated solar panels that can while continuously recharge the batteries from the sun. In order to remain environmentally friendly, the panels are covered with polycarbonate. The roof is impact-resistant, lightweight, and safe for all weather. In good condition, solar panels can produce good energy to travel at least 30 km per day. Do not be underestimated, even the car can roam up to 250 km.
Sion not only can be recharge by itself, but it can also be a source of energy for other electric cars or even household purposes. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vPpFAA)
Sion will also be equipped with air conditioning so it can be used in the summer. Not only that, it can also reduce the humidity in the windshield so that the visibility while driving is still good. Although small, Sion can pull a car weighing of 750 kg. The 80 kW electric motor and one-speed transmission ensure good traction even in difficult terrain. And Sion not only can be recharge by itself, but it can also be a source of energy for other electric cars or even household purposes. All household appliances with power up to 2.7 kW can be powered by this car.

4. Security
Although light and petite, security is also one of the factors considered by Sono Motors when developing this car. Some of the security features embedded are anti-lock brakes, alarms, airbags for passengers, and ESC (Electronic Stability Control) that keeps the car stable in extreme conditions though. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SONO MOTORS | INHABITAT]
