My rationale for passing on the 1000 mile or even 600 mile battery: Aptera has a great charging rate, in miles-added-per-minute, at Level 2 or Level 3 charging stations. (Even at Level 1, 120Vac, overnight is plenty to refill a 400-mile battery) Breaking a long drive for food and necessities, and charging during the stop, seems long enough for an essentially infinite drive, even with the 400 mile battery.
We use our Tesla Model Y with a battery with less than 300 miles range and even in back country without Superchargers, we can find plenty of places to charge. I don’t think it adds much time, if any, to our trips. Besides, charging stations are popping up all over, not to mention plan old 120Vac outdoor outlets.
