Noa three wheeler can be made to do anything a four wheeler can.
LOL. Always so serious. Okay, how about this one:That took about two seconds to disprove.
I think what redpoint5 is missing from his calculation is that there is a convenience of less need for charging, which has a value. I'd say that the solar on the Aptera is far morel likely to have a net positive impact than nearly every efficiency mod ever made.Quoting you here @redpoint5 since we're about 100' deep into that dude's main stream EV thread talking about the Aptera
And when the Bolt fires started happening, the point was made about how much more likely a fire is with an ICE vehicle. How well did that reasoning work?Yeah that won't happen. People said the same thing about the Smart and it's a far more dangerous vehicle then the Aptera will be.
They got that reputation because they are EV's, which are treated differently by the media.They got that reputation cause they failed.
I thought they made it a 3-wheeler to avoid having to do that.We should see Aptera crash tests before the end of the year
Well, I think you (and them) are dead wrong then. Everything about this vehicle absolutely screams "niche". I think that like many start-up companies, they have a "vision" but they failed to see if their vision matches what the public actually wants.they want to revolutionize transport not create a niche for people who are looking for an alternative to motorcycles
Two main ways to increase 0-60 is to increase power or reduce weight. Most manufacturers don't go the reduced weight direction because you have to remove things like sound deadening materials, structural safety, and nice things that everyone wants in a car. Looking at the weight is one reason why I question the safety of the vehicle. Safety adds weight.Did you notice 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds for the AWD version?
What else would they say? Do you also believe everything that GM says? Or Tesla?Aptera says the design is intended to maximize efficiency, not to avoid regulations
Difference is that the Tooth Fairy has never lied. 😝You didn't mention the tooth fairy.
It's perfect for long trips. So.... just pull a trailer with little Johnny and all your luggage in it.A 2-seater almost implies a vehicle not owned by someone with a family. Almost.
A light weight two seater for cross country EV treks. To calculate the people in the market for that kind of vehicle I almost had to use two hands.Depends on how the fast charging system is on it I guess. I would imagine that it could cut a few hours out of a cross country trek if it charges at even 150 kW.
Chula Vista?!? I lived most of my life there. We're like brothers.The longest I recall driving in a day was Chula Vista...
Well, it is close. There's a reason that the nickname for Chula Vista is Chulajuana. My wife says I'm not really a white guy because I grew up in Chula Vista and married a Hispanic.I visited Tijuana
Oh, I love making up Spanglish words just to get my wife riled up. In fact, my wife said that I wasn't "fully" Anglo so I said "Okay, but I'm a little bit Anglo... then call me Anglo-ito."I bet you can speak Spanglish?
