Tesla Ties Leads To German Solar Electric Car Company Choosing Sibros Connectivity Platform

Jul 19, 2021

Sono Motors Tightness among former Tesla colleagues has led to new partnership between Silicon Valley tech company Sibros and German automaker Sono Motors that's building a solar electric vehicle. The two companies announced Monday a collaboration where Sono will deploy Sibros’ connected software-based technology to manage its entire fleet of solar electric Sion (SEE-on) vehicles, which launches in Europe in the first half of 2023. The Sibros “secret sauce” is its Deep Connected Platform, which makes it possible for an automaker to provide over the air (OTA) software updates to all of vehicle’s systems and getting them to work in concert. Hemant Sikaria, CEO and co-founder of San Jose, Calif.-based technology company Sibros. Sibros “We can support, essentially, any different type of vehicle architecture,” said Sibros CEO and co-founder Hemant Sikaria in an interview. “Theirs is an electrical architecture we're familiar with. It's a very good architecture, very clean. From that perspective it was a natural fit.” The Sibros Deep Connected Platform handles what Sikaria terms the “foundational pillars” of a connected vehicle: the ability to perform over the air software and configuration updates to every component, collect high-quality, event-driven data from the vehicle and transmit user-facing diagnostic commands that a service engineer could use to track down or repair a technical issue. That type of all-encompassing over the air management was exactly what Sono's leaders were seeking for the Sion. “What convinced us is this holistic approach to it, which allowed us to concentrate on what we do, delivering great digital experiences,” Johannes Bückle, Head of Digital Product at Sono Motors told Forbes.com. “With Sibros, no other company has done more over the air updates.” Johannes Bückle, Head of Digital Product at Sono Motors Sono Motors Sono CEO Jona Christians went on to explain, “We build a sharing ready car. We designed from the very core meant to be shared. We think Sibros is the perfect partner because they are so committed to going all in with digital services and that's what we need because we want to make sure the Sion is used more than just 5% of the time. To increase the percentage that is what we want to do and we think Sibros is perfect for that.” The match between Sibros and Sono was facilitated courtesy a cadre of former Tesla co-workers. As Sikaria, a former Tesla engineer, recalled, “we were mutually introduced through common colleague of mine who spent time with me at Tesla. More and more we see more of the early folks at Tesla...stayed in touch. Everyone that has come from Tesla world sees the value and power of having a good connected vehicle platform and they have become champions of it and they see Sibros is doing this and this is making a real impact.” That former Tesla colleague of Sikaria's heads the German company Munich Electrification and made the introduction when the Sono team reached out to him when searching for a connectivity partner. It should be mentioned all three founders of Munich Electrification are Tesla alumni, according to Sikaria. Now that Sibros and Sono are working together, progress continues on the planned 2023 launch of the Sion. It's a unique vehicle that is powered by an electric battery that's range can be extended through solar cells that are actually integrated into the car's outer polymer skin. A Sono Sion's bi-directional charging ability is seen sharing energy with a Tesla vehicle. Sono Motors Sion’s solar panels can add up to 245 km or 152 miles (112 km or 70 miles on average) of additional driving range per week to the car’s battery, according to the company. One of Sion’s more novel and useful features is its bi-directional charging capability, meaning its energy can be shared with other EVs, power tools, or most any other electric device. Jona Christians, CEO, Sono Motors. Sono Motors “The idea behind it is to make EVs finally accessible to the mass market because one main problem is still infrastructure—a main problem why people don't adopt electric vehicles,” said Christians. The first Sion prototype was released in 2017 with the latest version set to go into production the second half of 2013. Christians says more than 13,000 reservations from European customers secured by down payments of 3000 euros or about $3,550. The Sion's sticker price is a relatively low $25,670 including the battery, but for that money the choices are, well, zero. Channeling Henry Ford, Christians explains, “It's a clear one model strategy. You can get Sion any color as long as it's black. There's one line of interiors. All the extras you would expect are included in this base price. Just one model minimizes complexity.” Interior of Sono Sion solar electric vehicle. Sono Motors While available, initially, only in Europe, Christians teases that the U.S. And China are Sono's “next targets,” but refused to elaborate on timing. Meanwhile, the Sibros-Tesla family tree has taken on a new limb. The company has appointed to its advisory board Jay Vijayan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of tech company Tekion , which operates an auto dealer management system. Vijayan is the former Tesla Chief Information Officer. “We had a few years of overlap when we were at Tesla and I always looked up to him,” said Sikaria. “He's representing the new wave of technology, version 3.0 of the auto industry. We're learning a lot from him. Jay's phenomenal.” Follow me on  Twitter .
