SONDORS Electric Car
According to the EPA, transportation in America creates nearly thirty percent of our total greenhouse gas emissions. Yet electric cars are priced out of range for the average person, forcing us to continue to depend on combustion vehicles.
We want to change that. And we want you to join us.
Our mission is to build the most attractive, affordable, and practical electric car ever with base price starting at $10,000.
You likely know the name SONDORS from our electric bike.
They said we couldn’t make an electric bike for $500. But we showed them that we could. With the help of thousands of supporters, we raised $10 million and delivered 15,000 electric bikes. We successfully created the first mass produced, affordable electric bicycle. The SONDORS eBike is currently the largest electric bike distributor in the U.S. and is sold in 67 other countries worldwide.
Our founder, Storm Sondors, doesn’t like to do things the way they’ve always been done. He creates with accessibility in mind, choosing to start with the basics, rather than adding on to something that has already been created.
As we did with our electric bikes, our plan is to cut out the middleman. You will be able to custom pre-order your car online. You’ll get the all of the features you want without having to haggle with a salesman. And you won’t even have to leave your house. We’ll deliver right to your doorstep.
Why create an electric car nobody can afford? What kind of difference will that make to the world? We share your frustrations. Affordability was at the heart of our ebike campaign and it is the heart of our electric vehicle as well.
We are creating an electric car that makes sense to the average person. As we did with our electric bike, we’re taking something elitist, over-engineered, and overpriced and turning it into something real, simple to use, and practical. SONDORS is working to be the first real option for an affordable electric car.
This campaign is raising the funds needed to build a prototype of this inspiring, attractive electric vehicle – the “Model SONDORS” – which we intend to market and sell worldwide.
The world is filled with useless stuff. Let’s create something useful together.
Most electric cars are replicas of existing vehicles. We insist on standing out. The SONDORS electric car is an innovative three-seat, three-wheel, all-electric vehicle.
We are designing this car from the ground up, with a focus on expressing simplicity. We’re forgoing the unnecessary complexities and focusing on building a technology that people will love. It’s not about complicated engineering, it’s about ingenious technology. That’s where electric excels.
At SONDORS, artistry is important. We create things that immediately makes sense to people. We want to create a car that people want to drive and innately know is the best way for them to transport themselves in everyday life.
Right now, electric cars are either unaffordable or, let’s face it, a little ugly. The Model SONDORS brings sexy back at a low cost.
And it’s fun. SONDORS will put a smile on your face and on the face of everyone you drive past. Be prepared to beam as you hug the curves of a windy road, and be stunned by how it handles in the sun, rain, and snow.
The three-wheel design creates less drag, which reduces the amount of energy needed to move it. Studies have also proven that three-wheels – two in the front and one in the back – make the vehicle equally or more stable than traditional four-wheel cars.
The SONDORS electric car body will be made of aluminum, resulting in a practical and efficient vehicle with superb performance. Our goal is to use our existing, proven technology, like lithium-ion batteries, to minimize testing and trial times.
Charging is easy. Just plug it into the same outlet that you plug your smartphone into every day.
Unfortunately, many people have “range anxiety” based on a misunderstanding (or purposeful obfuscation) of the facts. The average American drives 29 miles a day. They don’t need a car that can get them across the country on a single charge, they need a car that can get them to work and back.
The Model SONDORS will be available in three range options: 50 miles, 100 miles, and 200 miles. This car will get you where you need to go at a price that you can afford.
Research shows demand for electric cars is on the rise. Tesla is the talk of the town and traditional car companies like Volkswagen, BMW, Ford, and Chevrolet are creating electric vehicles to sell alongside their gas versions. Countries like Norway are aiming to reduce sales of gas-powered cars to zero by 2025 and President Obama recently announced actions to accelerate the adoption of electric cars in the US.
Electric vehicles cost less to drive and maintain, but the initial purchase price is a barrier for many. There are currently many electric cars on the market. There are high-end electric cars, confusing electric cars, ugly electric cars, and overly engineered electric cars. What does not currently exist is a practical electric car that makes sense to everyone.
This is where The Model SONDORS comes in.
There’s a significant unmet need for an affordable mass market electric car – and we have a viable way to fill it.
Proceeds from this campaign will be used to develop a working prototype for the car, which is projected to be unveiled in California within 12 months of the offering closing date.
Current priorities are securing financing initiatives, finalizing the technical aspects, and continuing discussions with potential vendors, partners, and suppliers for the prototype and production of the car.
After completing the prototype, generating market interest through the pre-sales program, and quantifying demand through refundable deposits and orders received, the company will leverage that data to increase its valuation for the next round of financing. We expect sales to exceed 120,000 units in the first year. Our business plan includes a path to profitability and strong returns for investors when targets are met.

With your help and investment, the SONDORS team will manufacture the Model Sondors prototype and take a major step in making all of our dreams a reality.
We want all of you together with us in this vision, this lifestyle, this new, affordable, and refreshing form of transportation.
