Electric cars are, in just about every quantifiable way, superior to gasoline vehicles. They accelerate with the speed of exotic supercars. They can run off clean, green power. And with fewer moving parts, electric cars are remarkably durable, with low maintenance costs.
However, you still have to charge them. If you’re a Tesla driver in California, you have access to a network of fast Supercharging stations. For others, charging your car might mean running an extension cord from your condo to the street and waiting 12 hours to get a mere 50 miles of range.
But what if you didn’t need to plug in at all? That’s the promise of the Aptera EV. It’s a three-wheeled, two-passenger “Never Charge Vehicle” priced from $25,900 to $46,000. The car is available to preorder now for $100 down and is expected to ship in 2021.
