Is it planned for Aptera to be a test vehicle for Tesla technology before it is installed on Tesla vehicles? If this is the plan, it would be beneficial to make Aptera as similar to Tesla as possible. (Including a steering column that outputted Tesla electrical signals.) I doubt the Full Self Driving (FSD) would be installed on the Aptera since it is a $10,000 feature on Tesla, but portions may be tried out. Perhaps the name should be changed from Aptera to Alset (Tesla spelled backwards).
