First, you carry out a reservation to purchase the Sion. Here you have a two-week right of withdrawal. In the second step, we offer you a purchase contract in the end of 2022. Here, too, a two-week right of revocation and withdrawal applies. You have the possibility to pick up your Sion directly at the factory in Trollhättan. In addition, we are working on a completely new delivery concept. For an extra charge, it will also be possible to deliver your Sion to your desired location.
Frequently Asked Questions
After your reservation you will receive a payment link from us. After the payment you will receive a payment confirmation and you will automatically be on the waiting list.
Your reservation is a purchase option. At a later date you will receive the purchase contract from us. You can then sign it and purchase the Sion or have your deposit refunded.
The Sion costs 25,500 euros including German VAT at market launch.
The basic price for the vehicle is 16,000 euros plus the cost of the battery. We’re planning to offer the battery at a one-time purchase price as well as with the option of renting or leasing it. The reason for excluding the battery from the price is that we want to always offer the most up-to-date price. We expect the price to be around 9,500 euros. We will calculate the final price for the battery based on the market rates for battery cells at the time of production.
The following applies to all persons preordering the Sion: you’ll receive a purchase offer for the Sion before delivery commences and you’ll, again, have the option of either purchasing the Sion and signing the contract or opting for a refund of your down payment.
The rights provided under German law for terminating contracts still apply.
Germany’s regular statutory provisions for warranties apply. On top of that, Sono Motors is providing a warranty for the Sion of probably two years or 100,000 kilometers as well as a warranty for the battery of two years, 100,000 kilometers or 2,000 charge cycles.
The COVID-19 global pandemic has had an impact across the automotive and technology sector, including Sono Motors and its suppliers. Components were delayed, and so was our last funding round, which we successfully closed in December 2020. In response, we decided to prioritise the timely delivery and development of the second prototype. With this strategy, we have been able to continue our technology development through the crisis and take these headwinds in stride. However, based on our proactive steps taken to manage the challenges of COVID-19, we must adjust our development timeline accordingly and shift the expected start of production to H1 2023.
We are planning to produce and deliver all reservations as of today in 2023 (12,800) and expect our production capabilities to exceed this figure.
During the first stage, you can preorder and make a down payment on a Sion. It comes with a two-week reflection period. In the second stage, in 2022 we will offer you a contract to purchase a Sion. Again, you’ll have a two-week reflection period, during which you can cancel the contract. You have the possibility to pick up your Sion directly at the plant in Trollhättan. Additionally, we are working on an entirely new delivery concept. For an extra charge it will probably be possible to deliver your Sion to your desired location as well.
