The average width of over 250 car models including mirrors is 2050 mm (80.7″) and excluding 1812 mm (71,3″). Source: German motorist club.
Two “normal” cars on that list are wider than an Aptera but only with mirrors out: Renault Trafic III Combi (2285 mm) and Mercedes V-Klasse (2255). Tesla Model S (2200 mm) is almost as wide as the Aptera (2235).
In my road I guess it would feel a bit like parking a bus. And people are sensible about cars claiming too much space in the city over here (if they are not brutal against them). So yes: I would welcome a less wide European version but do not expect it though.
