    I am sure all on the forum know this as they are particularly informed in the EV community but still may be worth mentioning for those that are worried about potential production slippages.

    This week two 900lb gorillas in the EV space have made announcements about the production impact of the shortage of chips. GM announced that they were suspending production in North America for a period because of the shortage. And Tesla (Current king of the EV) announced that the production of the sports car version of a Tesla would be postponed due to the chip shortage.

    I believe that Aptera production plans could be impacted as well. However, any delay in production can not be attributed to a shortcoming in Aptera’s engineering or management. And, with the addition of an executive to shepherd supply chain and production, may have an innovative work around for the chip issue (They are noted for innovation aren’t they)
