The automotive industry is in a period of change. Every time new sources of energy are experimented, and one of these vehicles is the Aptera Launch Editiona car that combines the electric and solar technology.
The vehicle, which since 2020 was announced as a promise of technological progress, is close to becoming a reality and the first model that can be delivered to customers.

The proposal is very different from what is known. It is an ultralight and aerodynamic 3-wheel car. In addition, it has solar panels that convert the sun’s rays into motor energy. They are 700-watt panels on the hood, roof, and rear.
But the most interesting thing is that this vehicle may soon be on the streets. According to the Business Insider page, there are nearly 5,000 Aptera Launch Edition vehicles slated to go into production.
One of the benefits it offers customers is that it reduces the inconvenience of recharging. It has a range of 650 km and will have 3 motors integrated into the wheels of the tricycle. In addition, it reaches 100 km/h in 4 seconds and its top speed is 112 km/h.
But it is not enough that it uses solar energy. According to the specialized media, the vehicle can also be charged by plugging it into the current. Aptera Launch Edition vehicles will feature a standard Tesla charging port. However, they will not be able to connect to direct current fast charging stations.
The next step is to achieve a range of 2,000 km. To achieve all this, an investment of at least 50 million dollars is needed. Once this is achieved, the vehicle will be delivered this 2023.
