The Aptera Forum
I asked this question directly to Aptera and received this reply:
"The Aptera will be compatible with the J1772 plug. "
No final answer But where ever it settles...it seems there will be some adapters to some conventional plugs e.g. J1772
Teslas all come with a tiny adapter for the standard home/public L2 chargers' J1772 plugs. In the extremely unlikely event that Aptera doesn't include one, AND it's not available separately to non-Tesla owners, let me know & my Model 3 friend will tell them she lost hers & I'll forward you the new one.
I learn a lot on this forum
@Paul Anita Kamath Yes, that is correct: The Founders admire the Tesla connector used in North America and would like to use it. If they do, adapters will be available. They have stated that the Aptera will charge using the CCS DC standard but have coyly not ruled-out the possibility of a deal to use low-speed Tesla Superchargers.
To give some perspective, it looks like the same L2 charger that adds about 10 mph range to my Gen 1 Volt would charge the Aptera at about 30 mph.
Right, but most cars & L2 chargers have at least 6.6kW capacity, adding about 20mph.
If Aptera is only 3.3kW (like a Volt), it would still be faster, at about 33mph.
If Aptera is 6.6kW it would add about 66mph.
@kiteboarder Well, likely more like 60 mph as it's not a 100% efficient. My point being charge rate isn't as limiting as the miles per kWh is substantially better than most current EVs
