Instead of giving up who we are, we decided to fight for what we believe in. By launching one of the biggest community funding campaigns in Europe. For a world in which every car on the street is electric and shared. Together with you.

Dear Supporters,

From the very first day of our journey, one principle has always served as Sono Motors' fundamental premise. It states that our highest priority must be the protection of the planet’s environment, nature and human beings. For a healthy planet and future generations.

Developing a car and disruptive technologies require high investments. Therefore we took an usual route to finance our project. During this process of numerous negotiations with investors from all over the globe, we realized that the expectations of the classical investment world and our values in fact, do not match. We faced the risk of losing our key technologies to investors, who do not share our convictions. This would have been the end of the project Sion; the end of what we have promised.

We opted for our core values and decided against selling out. We will stand up for our beliefs and continue what we began. Together with people like you who believe in our mission.

Today we are reaching out to you because we see the assurance of our principle endangered. It is time to go back where we came from. Back to you. To our community. If so far, the right road does not exist, we have to build our own – together with you. This will be a road that will lead us into the future we truly believe in.

As founders, we feel it is best to give something back. That is why we have decided to put our future profits into a community pool. To fight for a world in which humans take matters into their own hands and a liveable future.

In order to remain faithful to their promise, the founders made a fundamental decision against the sale of Sono Motors and in favour of company's values.

“We had to take this landmark decision. Otherwise the Sion would not have been produced.”

Laurin Hahn

Time to make change happen.

Disclaimer

* The support committed to the value of 32,519,405 euros through reservations and increases up to 30/12/2019 is no longer legally binding, as we have not reached the threshold of 50 million euros by 30/12/2019. In order to mathematically reach the total threshold of 50 million euros, we still need 17,480,595 euros until 20/01/2020. Only if this amount will be reached, we will ask all our supporters for payment. This is how we will continue to pursue the campaign goal of 50 million euros.

Why 50 Million?

With the call for community funding and a campaign target of 50 million Euro, we are securing our next steps, such as testing our vehicles, setting up production facilities at our partners and producing series prototypes.
