Top Digital Agency (TDA) is ringing in the New Year with a global project competition for companies!

TDA decided to give back to its community by creating a competition to find the best global projects and to earn a chance to win $10,000 in project funding. They wondered what the best way was to show that they believe in their community, so it was decided that a competition is the best way to express this. TDA is literally re-investing in its community.

The CEO and Founder of TDA, Goran Deak, had a few comments to make to start-off the competition. “TDA wants to transform the search for digital services by creating a simple, transparent and borderless platform. On that note, we want to recognize the pioneers in that push and reward them for helping us change the world.”

Some of the rules of the competition are that the project’s budget must be $10,000 USD minimum, the project must fit the list of expertise provided on the TDA platform (e.g. Web Development, Branding, Social Media Advertising, etc.), and the company publishing the project must state that they have the true intent to hire an agency when the competition concludes. The rest of the terms can be found at this page.

TDA wishes everyone a prosperous new year, and may the best project win!

The first series production solar electric vehicle (SEV) developed by the German mobility provider Sono Motors is to be manufactured in Sweden. As Sono Motors officially announced today, the first generation of the Sion will be produced in Trollhättan by National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS). The plant located there was home to the production lines of the long-standing and innovative automobile manufacturer SAAB. In total, an initial 260,000 vehicles will roll off the production line in Trollhättan over an eight-year period. Production will commence in the second half of 2020. After the ramp-up period, approximately 43,000 Sion a year will be manufactured in two-shift operations. Production will be carried out using one hundred percent renewable energy.

“In NEVS, we found the perfect partner for us,” says Thomas Hausch, Chief Operating Officer, Sono Motors. “Together, we share a vision of intelligent and resource-conserving mobility. We also value our partner’s specific expertise based on their many years of experience in traditional automobile development and production in combination with proven expertise in the area of electromobility.”

The innovative vehicle concept of the Sion already represents tomorrow’s mobility today – the aim of which needs to be the reduction of vehicles on the roads through more sustainable and more efficient usage. The Sion will therefore be equipped ex works with integrated sharing options. These enable the owner to share the vehicle itself, individual journeys, or even energy via a mobile application (goSono app), developed by Sono Motors. A bidirectional charging function enables the Sion to both receive and supply electricity, power electrical devices independently, and feed energy to other vehicles or into the electricity grid. Thanks to full-surface solar integration, the vehicle battery can be charged with pure and free solar energy worth up to 34 kilometers’ range per day in addition to its regular WLTP range of 255 kilometers.

For its market launch, the Sion will be rolled out in one single variant version costing 25,500 euros. There are plans afoot to develop other vehicle models based on the vehicle’s platform.

Since the presentation of the prototypes in summer 2017, the Sono Motors team has been going on test drive road shows all over Europe. On the occasion of the cooperation with NEVS, the next road show will take place in Sweden. Sono Motors has so far taken approximately 9,800 partially paid preorders for the Sion.
