After an early hybrid design in 2005 that didn’t quite make it to market, the Aptera came roaring back in 2019 with a similar shape but a cutting-edge, all-electric drive version.
Aptera now features integrated solar panels generating 700 watts of capacity and harvesting 4.4 kwh per day in a sunny climate like southern California. That translates to up to 40 miles of juice without ever having to plug it in. In a less sunny environment like Ireland, you can still expect to get up to 20 miles of power per day from the Sun. It also sports conventional plug-in capability so it doesn’t require a special charging station at your home.
The 3-wheel futuristic design boasts a .13 drag coefficient making it the most aerodynamic vehicle on the market. That in combination with its light weight makes it both economical and fast. The all-wheel drive version takes you from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds while offering 1000 miles of range with the largest battery pack configuration.
