The North American firm Aptera's main objective is to break down barriers on the issue of autonomy of an electric car by presenting a vehicle with more than 1,000 km range.
In itself, the new vehicle of the California-based company would stand out for being the world's largest electric car, reaching, according to Aptera, 1,600 km of autonomy, a beast compared to today's models. This is what we know about him.
The information we know so far about Aptera's car
Talking about a car with autonomy of about 500 km was not an everyday thing and one of the most prominent is the Taycan, the Porsche vehicle that has this range (here are more details about this car). Therefore, that Aptera affirms that its next model will have a battery to provide 1,600 km of autonomy catches the attention immediately, although the copy also enjoys a design that has no waste.
As it has been observed in the diffused images, the vehicle design comes in the form of water, a body that dates back to what was seen with a project from years ago. Thanks to this, the car can boast an aerodynamics that will allow it to move more efficiently.
In addition, it has been announced that The car will have three wheels and each one will have an engine with a power of 50 kW (This could be modified to only two engines to reduce weight and therefore consumption). It will also add screens that will serve as mirrors and will add batteries between 40 kWh and 100 kWh.
In addition to the above, as mentioned from the CleanTechnica website, the Aptera car will have a weight of approximately 800 kg, less if compared to other models. According to the company, the bodywork would be manufactured from 3D printing, with doors that will open vertically and with space for a pilot and a co-pilot.
Regarding its filing date, the brand has started a collective financing to raise 2.5 million dollars and thus be able to design 3 prototypes that would be released during 2020. We will see if the company manages to resurface from the ashes of the past with this interesting autonomy and design of the vehicle.
