The Plus and minus signs on the gas and brake pedal is a nice feminine touch (cute).
After months of long days and late nights teasing out all the details necessary to turn this dream machine into a reality, Aptera is announcing that they have completed the design phase for the Typ-1. They are now ready to get busy with the awesome task of manufacturing their aerodynamic vision. And busy they will be.
They already have the financing in place but there is still much that will need to be done before production can begin. First, and this may interest some of you, they need to hire "a bunch" of people. Next, they have to move into their new building (location undisclosed). They also want to do a little more advanced crash testing and refining of the manufacturing process. Then there are plans to build an Aptera store from which to conduct their sales and service. I expect that their showroom will be pretty empty for a while since more than a thousand vehicles have already been reserved.
From the web site:Price it the same as a motorcycle and i'd get one in a heartbeat.
I was thinking more along the lines of about $5k, thats roughly what a sanely priced normal beginner motorcycle costs right? I bet in 10 years time after inflation is considered, thats what an Aptera-like car will cost.From the web site:
How much will the Aptera cost?
The approximate price for the all electric version is $26,900 and the plug-in hybrid $29,900. These prices are subject to change any time before we begin production.
You can spend over $24,000 on a Gold Wing if you want.
