The Lordstown Motors truck and Aptera are scheduled to be the two American companies using Elaphe in-wheel motors. Lordstown Motors is planned to be the US distributor/representative for Elaphe Propulsion systems. The future of Lordstown Motors is looking very bleak and thought by many to be out of business in the near future. If this happens, this would leave Elaphe with no US distributor, and Elaphe is trying to find American buyers for its motors. (The US must be seen as fertile ground for selling in-wheel motors, because a UK competitor of Elaphe has already arranged for a Canadian company to manufacture its in-wheel motors for sale in North America.) Would Elaphe try to get Aptera to become its US distributor? Aptera is a smaller business than Lordstown, but a small representative is much better than no representative. Would Aptera want to be the US distributor if it had the opportunity? These are questions I do not have an answer to, but I would not like to see it happen in the early days of Aptera. They have their hands full and I would prefer to see all of Aptera efforts directed to bringing their vehicle to production.
