Default Aptera EV... potentially a never plug-in EV...

The promo video


Little bit of a breakdown by a youtuber
*Removed!*

https://www.theverge.com/2020/12/6/2...arging-vehicle

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3...ging-revealed/

So lets see here..

- Potential to never need to plug-in if you live some where sunny enough
- Damn affordable entry model at $25,900 USD
- 1000 mile range on the top model

Sounds awesome, will be interesting to see how this pans out.

This looks exactly like elio motors (same 3 wheel "car"), which scammed millions, had "working" prototypes, and in the end didn't produce anything. And before this, there was the same scam in 1980s.

Not to mention the youtuber has a damn affiliate link in his description. Same as ellio motors, had a "reserve your spot" money you put down, that no one got back.

Edit: I dug deeper. This scammy company was founded in 2005, and they have produced **** all over 15 years. They have already done this "preorder" scam before, with none of the funds for previous cars given back for those who preordered. In that timeframe musk made 3 companies, changed the car world, put rockets and satelites to space and a bunch of other ****. This garbage can will never charge 40 miles a day with those panels, only MAYBE if it sat untouched outside in direct sunlight in texas, with no clouds or shade. And even that is a big maybe.

Don't give them money, they are scamming everyone same way they've done before and same way elio did it.

They are 95% of the time unneeded vehicles and wasteful.

only if they're size appropriate for the family.
I have a family of 3 (4 if i count my small dog) and i have a BMW X1. That is the perfect size for me. I dont need anything bigger.

It also helps that i dont like big vehicles
