Aptera: First Preproduction All-Electric Vehicle Complete, Full Production by October


With backing from Google, Aptera could make something extraordinary. The first preproduction all-electric Aptera model 2e has rolled off the line. The 2e will accelerate to 60 miles per hour in under 10 seconds, and reach a top speed of 90 miles per hour. Energy economy – its fuel is electricity – is the gasoline equivalent of 200 miles per gallon. Driving range should be least 100 miles.

“With the 2e set to hit the streets later this year, and with additional models already on our drawing board, Aptera will create some 1,500 jobs and more than 100,000 vehicles in the next five years,” says Aptera founder Steve Fambro. “We hope to change everyday driving forever by offering incomparable mileage and innovative technology at prices people can afford.”


Full production is planned for October. If you want one, it is time to get that early order in.
