It’s not the miles per minute that matters it’s the 20-80% time that’s important. Miles/minute is only significant when you are topping up the car which will hardly happen with the Aptera because it has enough range to do the whole journey without charging. With EVs that have 200-300 miles of usable range you do top ups of a 100-150 miles, with a Tesla that’s about 15 minutes. The Aptera has a 600 mile range, doing more than 500 miles in a day is very infrequent, that’s a lot of driving. The typical fast charging use case for an Aptera will be doing a 20-80 fill up by people who either don’t have home charging or who are doing multiday road trips and are staying at cheap hotels that don’t have destination chargers.
