Wizz..... A real automative innovation.
Aptera Motors is an IdeaLab company building lightweight, low cost, composite, electric hybrid vehicles that are safe and reliable.
By combining patent pending low cost composite manufacturing methods and cutting edge computational fluid dynamics, the company's first car, the Aptera typ-1 will be available for under $30,000 (c.£18,000).
At Aptera conservation and efficiency is central to the design approach to ensuring sustainability.
By entering into every issue with the question of 'how to be more efficient' they maximize the value of every component combined, be they tangible or intangible.
For example, the seats and carpet were born of old plastic bottles and cups, and the fabrics throughout the vehicle use natural dyes.
And the 100 miles per plug-in (as in fill her up) you get costs a mere $0.50. Now that's something!
