    If Sandy Munro models this after Dodge Viper’s manufacturing Aptera will not need anything close to a typical auto manufacturing plant. The Viper facility kicked out three handmade vehicles a day with four times the parts and many more heavy parts versus the Aptera. I would only guess most of Aptera’s small sub-assembly can be done using a forklift on five parts lines. They would not need many hand hoists for final assembly plus a conveyor belt to move the vehicle down the line can be installed somewhat quickly.

    Once they make the vehicle the logistics of transportation to customers may be a challenge. It might not be just first come first served.
