This comparison was a fun exercise/realization comparing a vehicle I had vs a popular EV I have no experience with... I have only owned ICE vehicles.
Of course the Aptera is a quiet EV / environmentally conscious vehicle with newer technology ! Aptera’s Autocycle/motorcycle advantages , safety....TBD
2006 HONDA Civic Si
This was a reliable fun car. In the winter, the Si was ok with a good set of snow tires on at least the front tires, when I was on the east coast... now being in the SW the Aptera’s AWD will be handy during the monsoon. After ten years and over 150,000 miles the Si was showing some rust on its painted metal body
Even my wife’s old favorite ❤️ car had very similar dimensions to the Aptera. The hatchback coupe allowed plenty of storage. The painted metal body had rusted at ten years and 130,000 miles. She was terrible in snow even with snow tires😞
2007 MB C230 Sport Coupe
So the Aptera will be a “perfect fit” for our life, yet offer so much new technology in an environmentally friendly EV. And the battery range options will meet/exceed our driving needs
