Sondors Stories January 6

SONDORS, the company behind the impressively-priced $500 electric bike which had one of the most successful kickstarters ever, is now taking pre-orders for their three-wheeled, crowdsourced “Model SONDORS” electric car.  The pre-order reservations, which cost just $100, are available on their website and will secure your place in line to get one of the early cars.  The fee is fully refundable, minus a $3.30 transaction fee, and if you choose to buy the car when it is eventually available, your $100 will be applied to the price of the car upon making your order.

The car is intended to start at just $10,000 and have options for 75, 150, and 200 mile range battery packs.  It will have three seats, quick electric performance with a 0-60 of 5-8 seconds (presumably depending on battery pack), and be sold online with direct customer delivery.  Sondors is targeting 2019 to start delivering vehicles, assuming fundraising goals are met on time.

Sondors Stories October 11, 2016

A few weeks ago, we reported in exclusivity about Storm Sondors, the maker of the popular Sondors ebike, launching another crowdfunding campaign but this time for an electric car. We mentioned that it could very well be the first serious attempt to crowdfund an electric vehicle, but as it turns out, it was joined by another in a matter of days.

There are now two electric vehicle crowdfunding campaigns running simultaneously and they both have already reached their goal for a combined total of over $1 million toward the development of the vehicles.  expand full story

If the word ‘Sondors’ rings a bell to you, it is probably because you’ve heard of their electric bike. The Sondors Electric Bike campaign was one of the most successful projects on Indiegogo ever. It raised over $6 million from 15,000 backers and they actually shipped the product – which is not always a given with these crowdfunding projects.

We can understand why it was and still is so successful. The Sondors eBike with 350W of power and up to 50 miles of range for just $500, it’s a hard to beat offer in the ebike market. Now the founder of the company, Storm Sondors, announces that he is making another electric vehicle. This time, it’s an electric car. expand full story

From 9to5Toys.com:

It has been a big month for electric vehicles, with Tesla notably stealing the show with its event earlier this week and delivery numbers today. On the lower end of the cost spectrum, there is an ever increasing interest in affordable battery-driven transportation. We have already seen motorcycle and skateboard prototypes that each offer a unique alternative to traditional counterparts.

The eBike community is growing as well. One of the more intriguing electric bikes on the market comes way of Sondors. After previously raising over six million dollars on Indiegogo, Storm and his crew are back with a refreshed model and a lower price tag on Kickstarter that makes this affordable eBike more attractive than ever.
