    The current chip shortage is mostly related to older obsolete chips, things that would be considered ‘low tech.’ I don’t know anything about the design of Aptera’s circuit boards but because they are new development it seems that they would be less likely to rely on the older and obsolete chips that are currently in short supply. Electronic components, of course, are not the only things in short supply so there may be other supply chain issues that will have an impact on Aptera’s ability to make their schedules. Hopefully the low volume of production planned for 2022 will allow Aptera to acquire the materials they need.
