A Thank You Note to Our Ambassadors

Today and everyday, we are thankful for the support of hundreds of ambassadors.

We are supported by hundreds of ambassadors who are passionate about EVs, solar power, battery technology, engineering, science, technology, communication and more. They lend their expertise and enthusiasm to help us spread the word about Aptera and change the world through transportation. We’ve recently reached a milestone and are proud to announce that we now have over 500 ambassadors who are the driving force behind our mission. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of our ambassadors.

Meet Our Ambassadors

Neil Mazer

Neil Mazer is an Aptera reservation holder, investor, and ambassador. As an early electric vehicle enthusiast and the founder and president of the Tesla Owners Club of Riverside County, Neil is working with the Aptera team to establish an Aptera Owner’s Club in Southern California for future Aptera owners. He says he was inspired to become an Aptera ambassador because of Aptera’s “answer to the electrification of the industry, especially the development of the most efficient, lightweight but safe vehicle.” Fun fact: Neil helped Aptera gain amazing coverage in the All Things Future issue of The Wall Street Journal earlier this month!

Allen Guthier

As a technologist, futurist, and entrepreneur, Allen Guthier is passionate about the possibilities that exist at the intersection of business and technology. This passion along with his desire to leave the world a better place for his two daughters, drew him to Aptera. When asked why he wanted to become an Aptera ambassador, he replied, “Seldom does an opportunity arise to change the world and reinvent an entire industry. Aptera, by creating a solar electric vehicle, is showing that it’s possible to take care of the planet and yourself in a hyper-efficient, repairable, incredibly cool driving machine. Aptera will change everything, and I want to be a part of that movement.”
