Indiegogo记录保持者Storm Sondors发起电动汽车股权众筹

Storm Sondors是Sondors电动自行车的打造者之一,该电动自行车仍是Indiegogo上第二大融资纪录保持者。如今,Storm Sondors将融资报酬转为投资,提供初创公司StartEngine的股权。上月,Sondors向美国证监会提交了所得税申报表及股权众筹相关细节。新公司名为Sondors电子汽车公司(Sondors Electric Car Company),着力设计、开发、制造平价电动汽车。显然Sondors正在努力再创其电动自行车式的辉煌。

自首次活动发起后,Sondors已通过Indiegogo、Kickstarter及其公司网站发售了数千辆平价电动车。尽管在Indiegogo项目活动页面中有消费者表示其未收到所购的电动自行车,但大多数消费者表示对该产品十分满意。

叫板特斯拉

Sondors电动汽车的设计初衷是想打造史上最有新引力且具价格优势电子汽车。

Sondors预计该汽车的销售基价为1万美元。Sondors电子汽车已在Elio开辟了页面,有三个选项:50英里、100英里及200英里,选定后便会出现相应描述。

Sondors拟在众筹活动结束后12个月内发布汽车原型。目前Sondors尚未创建汽车原型,仅利用几张图片展示了相关概念。汽车原型创制完毕后,Sondors电子汽车公司计划通过预售活动调动市场兴趣,在利用所获订单发起另一轮融资。该公司预计首年可销售12万辆汽车。尽管Sondors的电子汽车大获成功,但仍需观察其如何与汽车业监管环境斡旋。

如旧文所述,Sondors初始之起便争议缠身。Sondors与公关公司Agency 2.0的“合同诈欺”案尚未厘清。Agency 2.0称Sondors存在并未履行eBike运营案中的条约。据ToyJobs.com消息,Sondors在另一场个人欺诈诉讼案中败诉。

Storm Sondors, one of the creators of the Sondors eBike that remains the second most funded Indiegogo campaign of all time, has switched from rewards to investment by offering shares in a new startup on StartEngine. Sondors filed a Form-C and accompanying offering details with the SEC last month. The new entity is called Sondors Electric Car Company and it seeks to design, develop and manufacture an affordable electric car.  Ostensibly Sondors is striving to build upon its success in the eBike space. Sondors has sold thousands of low-cost eBikes on Indiegogo, Kickstarter and via their own websit since their first campaign. While some backers have not ever received their purchased eBike from the first Indiegogo campaign according to the comments posted on the project page, it appears that the majority of backers have been satisfied with the product.

Challenging Tesla

The Sondors eCar is envisioned as the most attractive and affordable electric car ever. Sondors predicts a base price of just $10,000. The Model Sondors electric car has taken a page out of the Elio book by going with three wheels instead of four. The first iterations will be available in three range options: 50 miles, 100 miles, and 200 miles.  Sondors expects to unveil a prototype within twelve months after the closing date of the campaign. Sondors has not yet created a prototype presenting only some photoshopped concepts. After completing the prototype, the new company expects to market interest through a pre-sales campaign (ala Elio) and then leverage orders received to do another funding round. They predict sales to exceed 120,000 units in the first year. While Sondors has generated success with his eBikes it will be interesting to see how he manages the regulated environment of automobiles.

As mentioned in previous articles, Sondors has been embroiled in controversy from the beginning.  Agency 2.0 remains locked in a lawsuit with Sondors regarding alleged “contractual fraud,” as he allegedly did not honor the confines of his agreement with the marketing firm that solidified his success with the Sondors eBike. According to ToyJobs.com, Sondors lost another personal fraud lawsuit.
