the aptera solar electric vehicle (sEV) is equipped with the company’s never charge technology, which is built-in the car, and has been designed to harvest enough sunlight to travel over 11,000 miles per year in most regions. its lightweight composites — many times stronger than steel — allow its unique body shape to slip through the air with an unheard-of drag coefficient.
‘with aptera’s never charge technology, you are driven by the power of the sun. our built-in solar array keeps your battery pack topped off and anywhere you want to go, you just go,’ comments co-founder chris anthony.
the aptera solar electric vehicle (sEV) features an integrated solar that can be confirmed to provide up to 45 miles of range per day with over 3 square meters and 180 efficient solar cells, making it the first vehicle capable of meeting most daily driving needs using solar power alone. the liquid-cooled electric motors propel it from 0-60 in as fast as 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 110mph. all-wheel drive and vectorized torque control gives aptera comfort, stability control, and the ability to handle bad weather.
the aptera solar electric vehicle (sEV) is available for preorder now with prices between USD$25,900 to $46,900 depending on the range.
