The company is back after shutting its doors in 2011 after failing to secure $ 150 million in financing for its US Department of Energy-approved three-wheeled electric vehicle called the Aptera 2e.
Paul Wilbur, president and CEO at the time, said the company contributed new technologies to building the future for more efficient leadership.
Aptera expects its top-spec model, which includes a 100 kW battery, to reach a range of 1,000 miles.
The craft looks much like an airplane without the wings, allowing it to expend 100 watts of energy per mile, and with a battery capacity of 100 kilowatts, you get 1,000 miles of range.
The new three-wheeler, which seats two, has a solar array roof that can provide up to 45 miles of range per day.
Aptera’s co-founder Chris Anthony said: “The solar array integrated using Aptera’s Never Charge technology keeps your battery charged as you are traveling with the power of the sun.
He added: The Never Charge program is built for every Aptera, and is designed to collect enough sunlight to travel over 11,000 miles per year in most areas.
The front-wheel-drive vehicle can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, and the four-wheel drive model can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
The battery capacity ranges from 25.0 kilowatts – suitable for about 250 miles of range – to 100 kilowatts, and with rapid charging via DC power, the company says: The charging rate can reach 500 miles of range per hour.
And theI opened The company closes initial applications for Paradigm and Paradigm Plus models for a refundable deposit of $ 100.
Pricing ranges from $ 25,900 to $ 46,000 – or more for private vehicles – the company expects to deliver them in 2021.
