Sion – the world's first electric car on solar batteries Source:

The Idea of creating an electric vehicle capable of charging its batteries from the solar panels was in the air for several years. But no one expected that to bring this project to life will be able practically unheard of enthusiasts from Germany, which raised money for the first prototype of such a vehicle with a crowdfunding portal. Amazing electric car has received the name and serial production should start in 2019.

A few months of collecting funds for kraudfandingovoy site three engineers from the German city of Munich managed to collect a little more than 600,000 euros. For three years they worked hard on creating the world's first electric vehicle that could be powered by solar energy. A large part of the collected funds for the construction of the first prototype of the car and its rigorous testing in various conditions.

Sion from almost all sides covered . All the engineers managed to place on the vehicle 330 individual solar cells, is durable enough to withstand various weather conditions and other adverse effects from the outside. Solar panels for this further strengthened with a layer of special polycarbonate material. By themselves, the photocells provide a car cruising range of 30 kilometers.

Originally it was planned to produce two versions of cars with a battery capacity of 14.4 and 30 kWh In the first case, the reserve will be approximately 100 kilometers and the second 250. However, pre-orders had only been to the older model, so the younger was abandoned. Built-in batteries equipped with a quick recharge, which is able to charge them to 80% capacity in just 40 minutes. If recharging is to use solar panels, the process will take about eight hours.

Another unusual feature of the future of the electric car is extremely original air filter for the cabin. The thing is that the filter was created on the basis of moss. No, you heard right – it is moss. German engineers believe that such a filter not only filters the fine dust in the air, but also supports the necessary level of humidity in the car. The car will go on sale in some European countries at the price of 16 000 Euro. This cost, however, battery not included. It is possible to pay another 4000 Euro or take it on lease.
