    I’m curious about insulation on the belly side as well. I frequently drive across the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahua deserts, where summer pavement temps can exceed 140F. I had to line the floor pan under the carpet of my old Mazda with dense thermal mat to keep it from baking me like a Thanksgiving turkey. I’m wondering how Aptera battery cooling will work, with the skin cooling surface on the belly and no fans or radiators, on summer desert highways—or, worse yet, in stalled traffic on Phoenix streets, with no airflow under the car.
