Remember Aptera’s 1,000-mile never charge solar electric vehicle that was revealed back in December? Well, it has now received over 7,000 vehicle reservations, and just this past month, Aptera moved into a new production design facility in the Sorrento Valley area of San Diego. The 60,500 square foot campus will be home to Aptera’s three completed vehicles and a team of development engineers that will focus on advanced 3D printing, composites, UI/UX development, and battery technologies development. Read more for two videos and additoinal information.
Aptera’s low drag design gives it the longest range of any production vehicle ever created, up to 1,000 miles per charge, thanks in part to the integrated solar panels that can be configured to provide up to 45 miles of range per day with over 3 square meters and 180 efficient solar cells designed into the body structure. It uses liquid-cooled electric motors to accelerate from 0-60 in as fast as 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 110 mph. Plus, all-wheel drive and vectorized torque control give this solar electric vehicle comfort, stability control, and the ability to handle inclement weather.
