120 Days until First Delivery
So as the end of August sets in and September fast approaches we are just about to tick over to 120 days until the very end of 2021.
The goal of Aptera as has been stated several times and stands as delivering the first customer vehicle by the end of 2021.
With that in mind I thought it would be helpful to highlight all the things we want to see from Aptera before the 120 day mark.
Of course the information sharing will need to step up to a much more rapid pace (certainly weekly but likely much faster with only 17 weeks left in the year.)
Now not everyone of these will be done by Aptera directly but most will. Here are 40 that I could come up with:
Do you have any you would like to Add?
1 Beta Vehicles
2 Gamma Vehicles
3 Delta Vehicles
4 Real Road Testing
5 Full Solar config Charging Tests
6 Vehicle Testing by Elaphe to fine tune their motors for Aptera
