Joshua, I am not sure you are in a position to make such a statement as there is no information available To us on what Aptera considers protectable IP and what if anything they would want to submit a patent for. It may not be patentable as “Knowledge of it (The concept) has been known to the public” one of the disqualifying factors for a patent. Or they may have applied already which would not make sense as they are in the early stages of prototype development.
At any rate it does not hurt to make an inquiry. This is for an early adopter with some knowledge of heat transfer mechanics with a legitimate concern.
If they have a reason Not to answer fine
