    Let’s assume an average American who has used an ICE vehicle all his/her life has decided to switch to electric. What factors will he/she consider?

    1. Cost

    2. Range

    3. Charging infrastructure

    4. Industry leading tech (4680 cells)

    5. # of passengers vehicle can carry.

    These are just a few from among the many factors involved in the decision making process. My point is, in order for Aptera to be the choice mode of transport for this average consumer, it has to check most of these boxes. Either that and/or beat Tesla and other legacy automotive to the punch by making production ready vehicles asap.

    Yes there is no apples to apples comparison between Aptera and Tesla but at the end of the day, they are EV’s. Thinking purely from an average consumer’s perspective I believe that in order for Aptera to gain traction and grow rapidly we need to do everything possible to get these EV’s in the hands of consumers asap.
