Aptera Is New, Evolved, Efficient.
Thanks to efficient new designs and the power of the sun, the dream of driving for many more miles with less carbon, materials, and energy from the grid will soon be a reality. Drive the difference.
The Solution Is Efficiency.
We all want a car that goes more than 50 miles per gallon or 200 miles per charge. Yet why can’t you find something that easily exceeds these? Turns out, old antiquated design features still persist to this day—even in well-known electric cars.
Efficiency that’s Miles Ahead
Drawing less than 100Wh per mile for everyday driving, our vehicles go five times farther than other electric vehicles with the same-sized solar system. Discover how we deliver unparalleled efficiency compared to sedans, trucks, and similarly-sized electric vehicles.
Lasting Solar Power
The Aptera is the first Never Charge electric vehicle. Its solar system can produce more power per year than most drivers will ever need for the road.
Aptera features a level of passenger safety beyond just about any other vehicle on the road today—with a Formula-1 inspired safety cell, advanced airbag technology, and energy-absorbing composite material made of steel and aluminum.
Typical electric vehicles have 300 key structure parts; the Aptera has only 10. Fewer parts makes for an easier build and ultimately a more accessible price.
Long journey’s are a breeze with Aptera’s 1,000+ mile range and advanced CoPilot. The autopilot-system hardware, developed with a large Japanese OEM, can compete among even the most well-known brands in the autonomous-driving arena.
What People Are Saying
"It's a great car. We invested in the early days, too (around the early 2000's). Glad Aptera resurfaced."
"I invested in Aptera Motors because I believe in what they are trying to do here, their leadership team, their mission & the next generation of electric vehicles."
"I believe there a market for More efficient EV cars in the next 5-10 years that will explode."
Ultra Streamlined Manufacturing
With additive manufacturing, we can now scale production and launch new models with unimaginable speed.
Previously, steel stamping made these processes inefficient and exponentially costly.
Radically Light, Wildly Efficient
With generative part design, we use A.I. to optimize parts for the greatest strength with the least amount of material and weight.
Inspired by fighter jets and race cars, our resin-infused sandwich-core construction produces lightweight composite structures many times stronger than typical steel-based vehicle designs.
Outperforming on Efficiency
Incredibly efficient, 100% composite, and fairly priced— there is no vehicle quite like the Aptera.
With a 1,000+ mile range, the Aptera goes 4 times farther than competition like the Tesla Model 3 Long Range with 325 or the BMW I-3 with 114.
For example, the Rivian, needs a pack 5% larger than Aptera’s to go a quarter of the distance.
The Aptera travels up to 4 times the distance of electric vehicles with battery packs of the same size.
Most competitors have only a 200-300-mile range, and it takes a pack of 55-105kWh to achieve even that.
