    Actually I didn’t know previously but the Lordstown Motors Endurance has a top speed of only 80mph, 5.5 sec 0-60. This is the only other vehicle using Elaphe Motors.

    Be happy with 110mph. If Aptera had a 80mph top speed I flat out wouldn’t buy the car. It’s just a technical issue with in wheel motors that can be fixed if the manufacturer wants to pay more and pass that cost on to the consumer.
