A few weeks ago, we covered the A-Car, a bare-bones, low-speed all-terrain electric vehicle designed to help transform remote rural areas in parts of the world where main electricity is always available and where repairability and robustness trumps luxury features like massive touch-screen displays or over-the-air updates. Destined for the European market first (where the company behind it hoped it would raise enough money to make a more affordable version for developing nations, made by local facilities close to where it was sold, the A-Car met a mixed reception from the Transport Evolved viewer base.

Today, it’s the turn of the Sono Sion, an all-electric, highway-capable five-seat car that has some very innovative tricks up its sleeve and a promised production price that’s far more affordable than most electric cars on sale today. It offers two-way power transfer, off-grid solar charging, and the kind of features that you may not have seen in an electric car before.

So does this make the Sono Sion one of the most revolutionary cars you haven’t heard of? Probably.
