The Sion, recently completed handling and comfort suspension tuning and road load data acquisition, and is now undergoing durability testing in Spain. It is being tested at the Applus IDIADA test track to complete the accelerated durability test cycle on the proving ground in various rough road conditions, equivalent to 150,000 km of customer usage. These tests will confirm the complete vehicle’s structural durability as part of the Sion’s extensive and uncompromising test program, currently involving 18 complete vehicles and several bodies-in-white in the U.S., Germany, Sweden, Italy, and Hungary.

Over the course of the Sion series-validation, we are testing a fleet of currently 18 vehicles for various homologation-relevant aspects. We have wrapped this car to save money and fully focus on the main objective of this test vehicle, which is to perform accelerated structural durability testing. So no solar integration needed in this test vehicle. At the same time, the solar cells’ durability has already been and will be further tested on both component and complete vehicle level in several tests, e.g. during hot and cold weather testing. By the start of production, we will have conducted hundreds of thousands of test-kilometers, to ensure the Sion offers maximum safety and reliability for our customers.

We have to stop wasting our planet’s resources. CO₂ emissions must be reduced, with immediate effect. We have decided to take matters into our own hands by making clean mobility affordable for all. For you and for generations to come.

The Sion is the first series-produced car that can additionally charge its battery using solar power. A car that charges itself – a Solar Electric Vehicle (SEV).

The Sion is equipped with a 54 kWh battery, which corresponds to a total range of up to 305 km. Additional range is also provided by the solar panels, seamlessly integrated into the body of the car. These are able to harness the power of the sun and generate up to 245 km (average 112 km) per week of additional range at peak. Solar charging will be available whilst driving, to enable the most efficient use of daylight hours.
