The cooling is in all the places I mentioned based on what I’ve read and heard directly from the folks at Aptera.
Steve Fambro mentioned in the first video describing Aptera’s patented cooling system about sometimes being able to see condensation patterns in the morning on the side of the Aptera in the shape of the capillaries, while pointing to behind the driver’s door.
In another discussion someone mentioned how the solar panels on the roof gained extra efficiency by being cooled by those capillaries in the roof’s skin. Those solar panels may not contribuute to charging the battery while the Aptera is being DC fast charged. In that case some of the heat may also be radiated through the roof as well.
Of course the final design may be modified based on the extreme performance testing in the coming months.
