In December of 2020 Steve Fambro said that Aptera would support the CCS standard. Then some pictures of an Aptera prototype showed a Tesla super charger connection. Rumors that Aptera may be making a deal with Tesla to use the supercharger network started. This rumor has neither been confirmed nor denied.
Recently Tesla has indicated that they will open up their network to other EVs. Potentially to get some of the government money for EV infrastructure build out. Tesla has gone to the CCS standard in Europe and more recently in Korea, but not yet in North America.
We do not know what charger configuration(s) are on the Betas. Hopefully, a Makers Video will come along to clarify.
Certainly being able to use the Super Charger Network would give a boost to Aptera desireability. Things change with changes in the marketplace and we won’t know the final design until it is announced by Aptera. As Kenneth said, who knows what the future will bring
