It is back, they are taking pre-orders, and it still looks cool.

Aptera unveils super-efficient electric car with up to 1,000 miles of range and solar power


The main idea behind the vehicle is efficiency. It claims a range of up to 1,000 miles and achieves that by making the vehicle extremely lightweight, with three wheels and a drag coefficient (Cd) of only 0.13.


With that kind of efficiency, it can achieve 250 miles of range on a fairly small battery pack, resulting in a vehicle starting at just $25,900.


Buyers can also configure the Aptera with a battery pack that extends the range to 400 miles for $29,800, 600 miles for $34,600, and 1,000 miles for $44,900.


Aptera also offers the choice of a 100 kW front-wheel-drive system or 150 kw all-wheel-drive powertrain.

4 wheels yes, 3 wheels no - It's as simple as that. = Failure from the get go.
