2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Not that interesting to me as an ICE vehicle. But, the price is certainly noticeable and may find some traction with Millenials looking to have a small footprint but still need some level of personal transportation.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Recall that this is a motorcycle, not a car, then review the history of Aptera. Then finish with the understanding this is an EV section of the forum. ;)

The Aptera died after it was taken over by management from the auto industry. This one starts out with auto- and oil-industry management. Yeah, that'll work... ;)

Leftie, Thanks for this. I reported the post and asked a mod to combine the two topics as they've done in the past. The report was closed but the topics were not combined.

edit... Drees consolidated/moved. Thanks.

I just saw one in person at the Chandler Mall in Chandler, AZ last Sunday. Got to sit inside of it and everything. But it's still just a prototype, not an actual production car. Slated to roll out summer of 2015.

Hope nobody is still expecting this to become a reality. Starting a new car company must be harder than Barbie doing math.

I'm not surprised at all. All they've been doing is building prototypes and collecting reservations. 2 years ago I figured it wasn't going to go anywhere, and it looks like the writing is on the wall.
Pulled the trigger on going EV on 10/2016 with a 2012 Leaf, and a Tesla Model 3 reservation expected to receive in June 2018.
