Solar cells have gotten cheap enough to make solar cars practical. At least that’s the business model of one electric-car startup in Europe.
Sono Motors plans to build a $25,000 electric car covered in solar cells that can provide up to 18 miles of range a day. The company plans to introduce it at the end of 2019.
A little shorter than a Chevy Bolt EV, the Sion will be made of polycarbonate plastic body panels over an aluminum space frame. It uses a 35-kwh battery, and Hahn claims a range of 155 miles.
