Hi, James. Nothing like a Swedish winter to inspire a great heater and defroster, eh? My first car was a Volvo 122S. I was really jazzed when I discovered it had a pull chain under the dash that unrolled a rubber sheet from a window blind mechanism to block the radiator so you’d get a quicker warm-up in the winter. Clever Swedish engineers. Simple, but effective. I think the heating and defrosting for the Aptera will be an interesting challenge as electric heat can draw a great deal of power and that would be contrary to the Aptera efficiency mantra.
