I have been following the progress of this revolutionary vehicle from the beginning and am greatly disappointed over the decision to move forward with an interior design which utilizes a single, center mounted touch screen for all of the secondary vehicle controls.
This disappointing decision to me contradicts the otherwise incredibly unique and logical approach in regards to the rest of the Aptera design.
The significant drawbacks for this type of interface are well documented and it's surprising to me that a better solution utilizing less distracting, ergonomic and more aesthetically pleasing physical controls could not have been found. A direction similar to what was used for the original Typ-1 would have been a far better solution.
I believe the success of Aptera depends largely on it's appeal to those buyers seeking that logical and daring approach which is otherwise absent in the current automotive landscape. Choosing to utilize an unoriginal and inferior interior design interface opposes that belief and may reduce it's appeal to a measurable degree.
Does anyone else agree?
