Who we are

The Reason We Exist

Section 3 of our company’s foundation agreement states: “The company’s highest standard shall be the protection of the environment, nature, and people. All of the company’s products, actions, and investments must be based on this underlying principle.”

So the purpose of Sono is clear: We want to be a role model for facilitating individual mobility while at the same time preserving what matters most to us. To this end, a continuously growing team of engineers, designers, technicians, and industry experts develops and builds future-oriented electric cars suitable for everyday use with integrated solar cells and innovative mobility services. Our proprietary solar technology was developed in order to provide for seamless integration in all types of vehicles, reduce carbon emissions, and pave the way for climate-friendly mobility.

Our Mission

Our mission is to accelerate the revolution of mobility by making every vehicle solar. A world without fossil fuels – that is the vision of the three friends who founded Sono Motors in 2016.

#Community OEM

We are not looking to conduct transactions that only benefit a chosen few. Our community of backers and reservation holders is a vital part of everything we do. Those people are the beating heart of our company. Without their support, we would not be where we are today. Our community’s opinion is an integral element of Sono Motors. The community even has its own representative on our supervisory board: Sebastian Böttger. The people in our community have walked every step of the way so far by our side – and it has been a long way! – and will continue to do so in the future.

How We Work

As a company, we seek to go against traditional workplace structures in order to create a safe and encouraging work environment.
