Starts:
A car that runs on sunshine is in the works from German startup Sono Motors. The company is testing what it says will be the first affordable electric car with a battery that gets an added boost from sunlight, acting as a sort of self-charging power pack.

The Sion electric vehicle is the brainchild of Laurin Hahn and Jona Christians, who together with Navina Pernsteiner founded Sono Motors in 2016.

The car, which will cost €16,000 ($18,300), plus €4,000 for the battery, is scheduled to hit the streets in 2019. It features a lichen air-purifying system, and is covered with 330 integrated solar cells on its roof, sides, and rear. It promises a range of 250 kilometers (155 miles) on a fully-charged battery, and claims the solar panels will give it an added boost of up to 30 km.
(Looks hard to pedal?) :mrgreen:
