Windshield repair or replacement

0 comments

Edited: Sep 24

Windshield chips, cracks and replacements can be something any vehicle owner may face. For car windshield services,  like those perform by Safelite, whether a simple chip or small crack fill or an entire windshield replacement....it is covered by my insurance and has been a simple process... from my experiences. 🤔I wonder if this will be the same for the Aptera and its large aerodynamic windshield.

Surely any side or back window would be more involved....as with any vehicle.

  • I am curious if this AWD three-wheel (w/ electric motor in each wheel) vehicle with low resistant tires, which only has a curb weight of ~1800, with an impressive acceleration for 0-60 mph(!)... will wear tires quickly? (The old Aptera 2e had P165/65R14 tires (brand?) .. but not sure what is planned for the new Aptera) I am not sure we have a forum members with a light three vehicle (same tadpole configuration design), AWD (?) , low roll resistant tire experience...to share their tire wear experiences. We know...  Driving Patterns  – Certain driving maneuvers also quickly wear your tires down. Some of these maneuvers include: Spinning your tires Hard braking Gast acceleration Driving at fast speeds So if you do a lot of city driving, avoid slamming on the accelerator or the brakes as you make your way through town. If you do, you’ll be buying a new set of tires before you know it. I digress....Not a good comparison...but this memory brought  up the subject.... I remember my wife’s past Mercedes Benz sports coupe going through tires frequently. I kept up on the tires’ air pressure, alignment and rotation. That car hugged the road, with the sport suspension.  * “Little Old Lady from Pasadena”?😁. Well she put on the miles with only MB performed regular maintenance.Her daily commute was interstate diving at 65 mph and I am sure she ever exceeded that speed😇.I had summer tires and winter snow tires for the vehicle and tried different high end tires but it seemed I replaced them more frequently. This was a much different animal, compared to the Aptera. Four wheels,  a RWD vehicle . Automatic.  (3400 #)   * “Put an “Aptera” in your garage Hon-ey!”
  • Is the rear view mirror a mirror, camera display (like the chevy bolt) or both? Cant see side mirrors on any of the images. Are those cameras too? The little side displays inside seem to imply it.
  • So we are seeing evolving photos of what I hope is the final production vehicle. So besides the No Charge option.. where is the receptacle to plug it in, to power her up❓ Could it be wireless (induction) charging?
