The biggest challenge is to significantly reduce the misuse of valuable and finite resources such as oil, which is a non-renewable raw material.
Nevertheless, over 61% of the world’s oil reserves are consumed for transportation purposes. This produces 128 million tons of CO2 every year. Even if the drying up of oil wells is delayed by new extraction methods, there is no future for vehicles with internal combustion engines. The future is sustainable mobility.
The Sion plays a prominent role in this. The integrated solar cells ensure that - depending on driving performance and insolation - a large part of the required energy comes from an entirely renewable source: the sun.
Bidirectional charging - the ability to use the vehicle’s battery as a mobile power storage - is intended to replace the conventional power generator in countless applications.
Another goal is the longevity of the Sion: We want to ensure that the vehicle is easy and inexpensive to repair. Therefore, the reSono-concept is a very important contribution to sustainability.
