Hello all :-)
I have read a bit about Aptera now, and I think it is a wonderfully looking concept that I'd love to buy if I had the cash. I agree with those that say it is important to get a product on the market; I do however hope that there will be a possibility to add features later and that the first design takes that into account. 'A car that is designed with the possibility to be further improved in the future, wins my heart'.
Here's my wish list: - v2h (Vehicle to Home), With the 100kw battery package, this would be a very attractive feature... If it could be combined with the possibility of changing the cars batteries as they are worn out and/or new battery technology comes to life, I think it would really be a winner. - fast or not slow charging at home. Sometimes things happen fast, and one could easily find oneself coming home out of juice and quickly needing to go out again. I can imagine that quite a few people are willing to pay for the possibility of fast charging (home or elsewhere), keeping the anxiety of the 'common people' at bay at the very least. - Will need the car to be able to use studded tyres for icy snowy winter driving. I understand that this will decrease range. - Heated seats, steering wheel, battery and front screen if possible. - App for deicing and heating car and battery in sub C temp. - Would like to have a trailer hitch, or a possibility to add that later. - Towing points reasonably easily accessible. I saw that there would be a towing point in the front suspension... sounds good. - Good high and low beam lights. - A solution for mounting (streamlined) auxiliary lights for driving in very dark, wet and horrible conditions (aftermarket auxiliaries maybe?). Auxiliary lights are very popular in Sweden, where I live. Also popular in parts of Norway and Finland, where the deer and the Elch play in the woods. - Corrosion resistant subframes/car or made so it can withstand being coated in e.g. fluid film. Theres a lot of people in my neck of the woods that repeatedly drives on very salty roads. I also have a few questions, here they are: - which color of the car would be the best for onboard solar charging? No impact at all? If it is a color that is slightly better, I would tend to go for that. - I actually would not like to have the safety pilot feature engaged. Will it be possible to turn this (or parts of it) off? if it is just a software difference, would it be possible to engage this at a later stage in time for cash? i.e. order the car without this feature now, and engage it later? I wish everyone a pleasant time ahead :-)
