Hi John, anything like that is possible, though I am not aware of specific post-manufacture upgrades like that being directly announced by the Aptera team yet. For instance, there have been similar types of questions regarding the ability to later “tack on” more battery storage, etc. and the initial answers point to there being multiple considerations beyond just plug and play. I would think that perhaps the entire rear hatch could be later swapped out at X cost, or perhaps just the glass section. The bigger issue may be whether or not the wiring, connectors, and components of the charging system may also need to later be changed if the vehicle did not initially come from the factory with the solar hatch pre-installed. This is likely something that will be able to be answered by the Aptera team before you approve your order to move forward in 2022+.
