    Familiar theme here “Driven by the sun” 150 miles in a week from solar cells. (21 miles a day if counting 7 days in a week.) About half of Aptera potential) Not in Munich. Weather there is terrible. Affordable price point. Similar to Aptera claims. Potential to do do local daily commute without plugging in to charge, an Aptera claim.

    Four wheel, family seating, two way flow of charging current. Different from Aptera but representing some features asked for from a few of our forum posters.

    The fly in the ointment for them, no production arrangements close to Aptera’s. As mentioned in other posts, efficient and profitable production is a BIG hurdle. Also European legacy manufacturers all ready in production with simular vehicles and Chinese manufactures coming to EU

    And of course the big difference, Sion range 160 miles per charge vs. 1000 miles per charge for Aptera.

    A “Copy cat” potentially on life support before they get started in 2023
