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.
Laurin, Jona and Team
“Change is always possible if we take matters into our own hands.”
Two friends united by one vision: The protection of this planet’s environment, nature and human beings. Their goal? Providing sustainable mobility for everyone.
Their vision inspires people from all over the world to act and setting a sign for change. The community grows.
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.”
Time to make change happen.
