Solar body panel technology from German startup Sono Motors

This is a solar photovoltaic technology developed by German startup Sono Motors.

The solar body panels are lightweight — comparable to traditional body panels on today’s modern cars — and the polymer coating prevents the cells from splintering, the company said.

These solar cells convert sunlight into energy, which is stored in the vehicle’s battery. The solar cells, which work if a vehicle is driving or parked, can add up nearly 21.7 miles of range per day on the Sion car, the company said, noting that these stats are based on average weather in Munich.
