❝ Aptera…is claiming its forthcoming electric three-wheeler can operate on solar power without ever plugging in to charge.
Every hour it’s parked in the sun generates five miles of range, so Aptera claims 44 miles of range in a day based on solar charging from the summer sun in San Diego.
Users can still plug in the Aptera EV, which Aptera recently claimed will have a 1000-mile range between charges.
Interesting reads, warts, caveats and all. If it performs as promoted – and affordable in my retiree household – it makes all the sense in the world. Our average weekly shopping trip to town rarely exceeds 30 miles roundtrip. We’re in sunny New Mexico with all the solar energy you could ever wish for pouring down every day. Enough room for my wife and me + groceries, etc..
