    I would like to have floodlights/fog lights mounted low on the front fenders. For myself to have a clear few where my front wheels are in the dark, and for oncoming traffic to be able to estimate the width of the Aptera in the dark. It would be nice to have a low and high intensity light depending on the situation and need. The normal lights seem not to be able to shred any light on the outside part of the front fenders.

      Not sure how much space there is between the front of the fender and the tire tread. cut out a section and put a fog light and to keep the aerodynamics clean put a clear piece of plastic flush with the fender.

    In case you have to park your Aptera in a narrow street or place: a removable cover for the front wheel fenders: reflective signal red with a signal green Aptera logo on the side for the left wheel fender and a reflective signal green with a signal red Aptera logo on the side for the right front wheel fender.

        Oh I’m totally doing this. I’d never even consider this on any of my current or past vehicles, but I need this on my Aptera. Soft glow, not bright. Just enough to make people wonder.

    Echo Auto- Hands-free Alexa – in your car with your phone. Simple standard include IMHO:

    Better yet if my projector idea below chosen. (Also has Alexa built in).

    https://portal.facebook.com/ca/products/portal-tv /

    Finally, assuming we can attach devices like Chromecast, Roku, Apple, Firestick or Android streaming devices to run off center screen when parked for camping.

    Does a 12v beverage cooler built in between (ie behind) the seat backs a good idea? I see there is a flap that is to come into place to fill void between deck and folded seat back. This cooler would fit between that (the two seats) and that helping to fill in that area (support) and void fully.

    Finally, would be cool & easy for small LED projector to be an option so as to be able to project video to white panel on tent with an option to reverse image view that would make visible from outside depending on location of black out panel. Basically duplicate front and rear facing projector. Not a difficult tech add on. Visualize doors open for outdoor theater and sound.

    A vertical net behind the seats. I was in an auto accident where the items in the rear (it was a hatchback) went flying forward. A can of hand cleaner cracked the windshield, it hit so hard. Also, several tie down hooks in the rear.

    Less options.

    More options will delay production, increase production complexity and cost.

    I want the car asap. Hence NO options is best to get there.

    The first new car I bought was an Alfa Romeo 33 QV. It had exactly two options. Either red or black.

      Thats why I didn’t pick any options on my car and selected the front wheel drive 400 mile to get the car asap. The main reason I made this thread posing the question of what options people want is to help aptera and third parties to think of new ideas they can offer after the car is released.

      Due to low weight, few parts and mostly human assembly they shouldnt be hit as hard as others for options. The pet kit or camping kit are just collections of things made by others that they will make money on ($600 usd for a California made tent lol). Most people will max out the solar options and add level 2. Essentially its just 3 base colors (9 pieces of polycarbonate), 4 hoods, 2 hatches. Quite manageable for human processing.

      Suggestions in this thread definitely wont make it into the first vehicles but it will allow them to iterate and understand consumer priorities. HDMI or usbc input on the infotainment is to me an easy win for little effort but thats still a new iteration on the hardware.

    It aught to have a “Sentry Mode” type of feature. There are lots of nuts and crazies out there who will see our little Aptera as a threat to their manly ICE noise makers and will key it, bash it, or otherwise show their disdain. Likewise on the road, there will likely be haters who will need to be monitored.

    I want to second, third, and tenth what Dan and John have said. I’m terribly excited, not so much for my Aptera, but for ANYONE’S Aptera. Can there be a celebration when the first customer- intended Aptera rolls out of production? I’d show up for that.

    A sort-of whimsical thought exercise for the future. Can enough autonomy be put into the vehicle to give it solar tracking capabilities?! Can it shift positions slightly, every hour or so, for the rear deck to follow the sun, with sensors to make sure there’s room? Tracking adds 10-25% to the output of solar panels. I’ve seen articles dismissing the Aptera’s solar capabilities as gimmicky, saying that solar should only be on roofs of buildings. Tracking could make the Aptera’s panels MORE efficient than roof mounted arrays. Just a thought.

      It could be possible to tank turn a 3 motor aptera to keep it in ideal sunlight but the special requirements would be so strict it would never be used. I can imagine someone turning it on while parallel parked on side of a street.

  • John Schwartz

    Let’s start with the features that are mandatory:

    1. Headroom, headroom, headroom! While I’m only 5’7”, I’m very long waisted, so I sit taller in a seat than most people who are 6’5”. I can’t drive nearly half the cars on the market because I literally hit my head on the roof.

    2. Up/down, front/back adjustable seats. While 8-way power seats would be ideal, I’m sort of assuming this will have manual adjustable seats. In that case please use the style where front/back adjustment is separate from up/down adjustment. This helps maximize headroom for those of us with long torsos and short legs.

    3. Comfortable seats with proper lumbar support. The only real flaw people find with the Chevy Bolt is the seats (ignoring the whole spontaneous combustion issue). Don’t let the Aptera be maligned due to poor seats. They don’t need to be “plush”, but they do need to be comfortable, all day comfortable.

    4. Telescoping steering wheel. Since this appears to be a very “feet forward” driving position, the steering wheel must be telescoping to accommodate different body dimensions.

    5. The ability to access all stereo and climate controls in ALL driving modes, ESPECIALLY REVERSE! The biggest complaint I have in newer vehicles is that climate and stereo controls, even when there are physical buttons, get locked out in when I need to access them the most, namely when I’m in reverse. The reason this is an issue is the the first thing most people do after starting a vehicle is to back out of somewhere. When I start the vehicle, the stereo and HVAC have not yet turned on, so I start backing up, the half way through the maneuver, usually at the most dangerous part (entering traffic), the stereo starts blaring and the HVAC decides to power on full blast, so I can’t hear the environment around me which is very dangerous. Because modern vehicle SW locks these controls while in reverse, I am forced to either suffer through the maneuver before I am able to make adjustments, or put the car back in park, to turn down/off the stereo or HVAC. It makes me hate the whole vehicle every time it happens, which is every time I back up.

    6. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. No one should even consider marketing a vehicle without these as standard.

    7. 2+USB charging ports with at least 2.4A per port minimum. USB-C with USB-PD preferred.

    8. Excellent headlights. Test them on a curvy, narrow, mountain road, in the woods, on a cloudy night. If you can’t see the turn coming through a dip, you need to try again. Hint, you need some light shining above the centerline of the vehicle, and wide to the sides as the road ahead isn’t always below or in front of you. So many cars have practically useless headlights, and this is a feature that is nearly impossible to test on a test drive.

    9. A ROUND steering wheel. I’m seeing a trend, maybe started by Tesla, maybe not, toward non-traditional shaped steering wheels. I can’t imagine why people would want that, or how it can be considered safe to drive. Placement of hands on the steering control needs to be predictable in all maneuvers, and this is only achievable with a circular interface.

    10. Driver information in front of the driver. This includes current speed, trip distance, energy, output/average consumption/remaining, etc… Requiring the driver to take their eyes off the road to look at a center console to find this info is unsafe and is a deal breaker for any vehicle purchase.

    Ok, now for the wish list:

    1. 3rd seat option, even if it’s a jump seat.

    2. Ground effects lighting as factory equipment. I think they look silly on most cars, but this one needs it. It just does.

    3. I like the idea of a solid side window option. Some of the other suggestions in this thread are good. Fixed in place might be acceptable. Mini-van style vent windows could also work well, and would be my preferred choice for this type of vehicle I think.

    3a. As others have said, the primary purpose of opening the windows on a car these days is to quickly get the car down to ambient temperature when it’s been sitting in the sun. An option to have a fan circulating air through the cabin while sitting in the sun, above a certain temperature, to keep the car near ambient would really eliminate the need for large opening windows.

    4. Adjustable load rear suspension. This type of vehicle seems more sensitive to load variation than traditional types, so adjustable load suspension seems almost necessary. Air suspension systems are very good at this, and can even do it automatically. There may be other designs that also work at lower weight/cost. This is certainly something I’d be looking for as the current load limit only really supports two adults and no gear, and an adjustable suspension would allow you to increase the load limit.

    5. Towing option. An integrated hitch receiver and trailer wiring would be optimal. The ability to carry a bike rack or tow a light trailer, makes this vehicle infinitely more practical.

    6. Ability to disable TPMS. All this system does is false alarm, and provides zero value. I can tell my tire pressure is not where I want it either through visual inspection or immediate feedback while driving. I can tell it’s off several PSI before TPMS tells me. I know that not everyone can, just like some people can’t tell their brakes are shot, so some people like this feature. That’s fine, for them, but for the rest of us we should be able to turn it off.

    So, that’s my list. I’ve never been interested in owning an odd looking vehicle, nor any two seater before, but this vehicle is awesome in both form and function. I must have one, provided the insides are as well designed as the outsides (see above). I can’t wait to see these on the roads, and hopefully own one. I am in the market for a daily commuter and this would be perfect. Hope it’s ready sooner than later.

      I belive the main reason aptera has such a small cargo weight limit has more to do with stability than their suspension design. Most of the wight is pushed as far forward and low as possible while the cargo deck is high up above the rear wheel.

        It is a very light vehicle. As a general analogy, a very light person can carry less than a very heavy person. Same goes for cars.

        Engineering is all about compromise and balance. If somebody wants to lift heavy things, they should get a Cybertruck because it is designed for that purpose …. but don’t expect high efficency. If they want high efficiency, get an Aptera because is designed for that purpose ….. but don’t expect it to carry your 50 bags of concrete.

          Every engineering team has to deal with trade-offs. I get it. I do it for a living. For passenger vehicles, the cargo capacity is generally dictated by the comfortable working range of the suspension. At minimum weight there needs to be enough load on the suspension to provide safe, comfortable handling. And the same needs to be true at maximum load. Heavier vehicles tend to have a wider range because it ends up loosely relating to a percentage of the total vehicle weight. This is all based on the premise that the suspension components have a fixed response, because most people generally don’t like to fiddle with things. All I was suggesting is that, by adding an adjustment capability, you can change the equation. Some vehicles already do this, and some people do it as an aftermarket mod.

          I’ve never been interested in most two-seat cars, for the primary reason that they generally have little to no usable cargo space, so you can’t actually go anywhere with them. This makes them nothing more than Sunday drivers, so to speak. This vehicle excites me because, on paper at least, it’s designed to actually go places. Really, what is the purpose of 25 cu. ft. of cargo space if you can’t put anything in there? I get that three wheels presents it’s own challenges for weight distribution and balance, and I get that this is trying to be as light as possible while still being a complete “car”. My concern is that at the stated limits, it’s barely suitable for a run to the grocery store, and if it can’t do that, well, what’s the point?

          As others have said, it’s a wish list. And as a niche vehicle, it’s totally awesome the way it is. I want one. The future four-wheel variant will obviously be able to solve a majority of the “practicality” issues that may or may not exist in this version, at the cost of some efficiency.

            It would always be best, I would think, to load starting behind the seats first then working back. Too much weight sitting at the trail would concern me.

            Guess we’ll see how the engineering and suspension goes. I love this thing.

    Option for a built in 1 1/4″ hitch mount in rear center square behind the Aptera symbol that would allow small trailer to be attached.

    Putting a couple of muddy mountain bikes in the back while possible is not all that appealing. Also it would be nice to be able to pull a couple of kayaks, a canoe or a “rooftop” carrier on longer cross country adventures. A small trailer would also allow someone to haul a small amount of material like lumber which I typically strap to the roof of my Bolt destroying the aerodynamics, but it avoids having to use the pickup truck and on the short infrequent journey it is not really an issue.

    Option for a bidirectional charger so in an emergency the battery can be used to run emergency power to house for a short while.

    Having to avoid buying a backup battery would be worth 1/2 the price of buying an Aptera. I’m looking at ~ $20k for a similar sized backup battery.

    A manual override switch.

    It seems that everything is getting hacked these days and I suspect someday it will happen to computers controlling autos so it would be nice if the electronics start acting irregularly you can flip the switch and safely bring the car under control and perhaps limp along with minimal capabilities.

    Wishlist:

    1. Digital Rearview mirror, especially useful for those with full solar

    2. 3rd seat, being a jumpseat, even if it’s positioned behind the front row in the center.

    3. Fog lights positioned low in the wheel cover housings.

    4. Side cameras facing rearward in the wheel cover housings for localities where rear view mirros can be cameras instead.

    5. Dual wireless celphone chargers for driver and passenger.

    6. More cupholders and storage cubbies and compartments

    7. And yes, all this is moot if you never reach production. I just want you guys to start getting production models out to us customers! Road presence will be your single biggest advertisement of availability. Been rooting for you guys since v1.

      pburgos, Rear view mirror (will be screen) is law, not optional. They said no to the 3rd seat. #3 is possible. If you have been following then you should know by now why #4 won’t work. #5 might be 1 inductive and 1 or 2 USB. And on #7, we are all anxious for a well designed product, but something less and sooner is bad. First impression will set the standard for what is expected of all future products. Some bells and whistles can come later, but if it isn’t great, you won’t have future products.

    I mentioned this before, above. Other suggestions too including FB Portal (also Amazon Alexa enabled) if a MINI LED projector installed to display in rear of tent (inside or out view). Think of how this would be shared INCLUDING socially.

    Amazon’s Echo Auto is back to $20, one of its lowest prices. Instantly & effectively “smart connect” your Aptera (or other). Should come standard on the Aptera. Easy tech.

      Turn on house lights, turn off security system or open garage. So many options are possible. The “Alexa drive me home”, not yet automated BUT could help you with turn by turn NAVIGATION etc.

      Add “SKILLS”.

      Utilize the power and computing of one’s phone whilst cradled & charging. A no BRAINER on a bunch of potential & savings if thinking that way.

    If they were to do that, I would be game for an emergency deployable temporary 3rd seat option. Even if it were to be rear-facing in the back, just to make ends meet for those occasions in which another passenger is absolutely necessary. One that you could keep in your garage in case of a rainy day or that could deploy like a rumble-seat. For models which are 250 or 400 miles range there would likely be sufficient real-estate to incorporate a basic rumble-seat for such needs.

    At the same time, I would not wish for any machinations to impact the production cycle of vehicles under a current commitment. But if, at the actual time of sale, this could be a consideration ona case by case by case basis whether or not the buyer would accept the possible delay this may cause for their own specific delivery, this could be a way in which it could be worked out without sacrificing the time-lines of every other expectant owner. Thank you for your question Riley!

      It would be easy to fit a third jump seat between the two front seats all it takes is a little ingenuity. Looks like a center tunnel that could interfere but would just need to modify lower portion of jump seat than add seat belt.

    What I’ve suggested is handled by Bluetooth.

    Not everyone cares that you can carry your surf board but it’s showing a lifestyle. That camping and tech lifestyle can coexist. My suggestion are inexpensive and off the shelf for the most part.

    BTW my home is fully automated with Control4. You don’t need that for home automation with Alexa necessarily but the learned skills enables it and other.

    Regarding the upgrade to FB… Portal (also Alexa enabled):

    https://portal.facebook.com/ca/products/portal-tv/ (on sale now for about $100.00 USD or 129.00 CDN )

    Imagine the communication and sharing of experiences and travels from your Aptera. The marketing alone is worthwhile let alone the functionality while in the back or watching with friends outside with doors open adding to the theater sound.

    Here’s one example, there are others both cheaper and also pricier. These are items that essentially only require inventory and not a negative. Just a little adaptive thought in advance of the offering.

    Embed existing”Tile” tech (via a potential marketing deal) into the vehicle; find where you parked! Locate your (borrowed) Aptera. Leverage existing tech. Why not?

    Much of this stuff can be treated like easy “modules” of tech convenience coming together; whereas Aptera thinks outside the box!

    BONUS, these “individual modules” are prime candidates for upgrade easily over time as well; by default.

    It’s a thought anyways. 🤔

      Most states, if not all, have fairly strict requirements against the tinting of any driver and forward windows. It would likely be impractical for Aptera to tint them and be in legal compliance.

      The windows are all tinted as standard. 35% tint is legal probably everywhere, plus since it’s 3 wheels even a 5% tint is legal but I think it comes with 32-35%.

    OOh and ….. only if it helps and does not cause problems …… the horizontal fairings that connect the front wheels to change angle of attack during high speed cornering (electronically controlled). This would leave them in low drag configuration almost all the time, then generate down force when needed during high speed cornering. Doing it at the back would be a sprung load …. could be bad at the back.

    • Riley -_-

      Member
      September 24, 2021 at 9:25 pm

      I like your train of thought, however instead of producing downforce to improve traction what if the earo was providing lift towards the outer wheel reducing unsprung weight. Would that work or am I completely crazy. If the elaphe motor is adding 50lbs but the earo is creating 50lbs of lift at 65mph at the expense of drag.

      Not sure I follow you but I think your talking about using solenoids to change the front suspension geometry. This could be good for driving but also amazing for parking but would be complicated. Getting the width down to 80 inches or less for parking would really help Europe.

    I would really like to see the ability to plug in additional solar panels to use when the car is parked. If I am at work (if I ever get BACK to work…) it would be great to get additional power to the batteries while I am inside working. When I come out to go home, I just disconnect the external cells, put them in the trunk and drive off with more juice that when I arrived at work. Even if a designated “port” is not on the Aptera, perhaps the connections could be identified so that this type of modification could be done by the owner if they wanted.

    For electronics, I am hopeful for Android Auto/Apple Car Play (untethered – no USB cable necessary), Homelink (no one wants to put a tacky remote on the visor), and a couple 2.4A USB connections for phone/tablet charging and possibly use as auxiliary input for music or whatever.

      +1. I would be great to have the ability to plug in an additional solar panel. I would then go for the hatch without solar but leaving a panel on the cargo bed to yield a bit of sun (similar to the dashboard solar installment. Or use the panel external while camping.

        Could you elaborate a little on what you’re thinking this add-on panel would look like? Size? Weight? Rigid or flexible? Could I easily move it out of the way if rear storage is needed, like items from the grocery store, etc.? I like the idea of having this option, but I don’t know enough about the current technology to visualize exactly what it might look like and how easy it would be to move around.

      Should be easy for Aptera to license that tech and sell it as a compatible device for additional charging. Could see up to 100 miles a day of solar charging from that, if not now then in a couple years.

      Sam, I too would really like the ability to directly plug in solar panels. A simple XT40 outlet to let me pump additional power into the Aptera battery supplementing the Aptera’s built-in solar cells. I’d do this while the car is parked in my driveway. Easier to orient a couple of external solar panels vs. turning the car to track the sun. I wouldn’t plan on taking additional panels with me, only do solar charging at home. I should say though there are many portable, foldable solar panels on the market. They are typically marketed to the camping crowd. One could easily tote one or more of these 200W folding panels in the back of the Aptera and plug them in at your destination if there were an way to directly connect them to the Aptera. The solar charge controller in the vehicle (there must be one built into the electronics to handle the Aptera’s from-the-factory solar cells) would have to be rated to handle the extra input though.

    A very loud horn. A sleek, matte-black, virtually silent Aptera needs a horn that makes it sound like an 18-wheeler.

    1. Spare tire and jack

    2. Cargo area window cover (to keep cargo are items out of sight)

    3. Ability to add battery capacity quickly and easily (maybe not an option, but a design feature)

    4. Midnight option: All black. Interior, exterior, components… everything
