    If you’re passionate about Aptera and our mission, you might want to learn about our Ambassador Program. We’re currently interviewing applicants around the world who want to help us usher in a new era of efficient solar vehicles for the benefit of people and the planet.

    Ambassadors have a wide range of responsibilities including attending events and promotional activities, providing product feedback, engaging on legislative issues, moderating social media forums, and more.

    You can learn more about the program and apply to join our growing community of Ambassadors here.

    If you have questions, please email Ambassador@aptera.us.

    Hi Sarah! I emailed Aptera about the Ambassador Program a couple of weeks ago and haven’t gotten a response. Can you help out please?

    By the way… I wrote another song for Aptera. Check it out on You Tube:

    Hi Sarah! Thanks for accepting me into the program!

    @everyone: Just letting you know it takes some time to review your application but the team at Aptera do review them. All of us are eager to participate but just give them some time 🙂

          John, I would think that it would be up to Aptera to make that determination with the concurrence of the people in the program. I am an ambassador, but I wouldn’t want to put someone else’s info out there without their permission.

    Hi Sarah, I’ve applied to the ambassador program a couple of weeks ago. I live in British Columbia, Canada and I’d like to be involved in helping Aptera gain traction in the Canadian EV market.

    Many people I’ve spoken to have concerns about how Aptera EV’s will perform in adverse weather conditions primarily excessive rain and snow. I’ve already been clarifying people’s doubts through word of mouth and intend to start a YouTube channel to reach more people.

    I’m a pre-order holder and an investor. Everything in nature has been optimized to use least amount of energy to get the job done and I’m stoked that Aptera is trying to replicate nature in that sense. I’m a strong believer in efficiency and truly want to assist Aptera succeed in an effort to contributing to a better world for our children and the future generations to come.

    Is Aptera still accepting new Ambassadors? I applied several weeks ago and have not received a response. Perhaps there was some pre-determined limit and that has been reached?

      It was mentioned in the last Ambassador webinar that they were planning on limiting to 500 ambassador’s, but I have no idea where the number is presently or if it is a hard number.

    Hi, Sarah. I applied several weeks ago, but haven’t received any response. Are you still reviewing applications like mine? I gather there is quite a backlog due to the level of interest and this may be slowing things down.

        Thanks for your suggestion Oz Man. In fact, I have emailed ambassador@aptera.us two times. Once about 10 days ago and a second time 3 days ago. I’ll wait another day or so and emailed once more.

          Oz Man, I’m laughing here in Ohio. Like washing your car to make it rain, after I sent my previous response to you, I checked my email and there was a response from the Aptera team apologizing for the delay and indicating I should hear something by Friday. Go figure. LOL.

          Hi, Davis. I’m new to the Ambassador program as well.

          There is certainly a wealth of resource material on the Google drive set aside for the program, but I have not found a calendar of upcoming meetings either. I suspect it is difficult to make a commitment to a specific date each month for an Ambassador meeting since the pace of progress is furious, but not linear. That is, some periods of time may be slower than others and the powers-that-be may understandably want to have substantial material to share whenever there is a meeting.

    Announced during The Elder Scrolls Online 2022 global reveal, adventurers of Tamriel will soon have the opportunity to explore locations never before seen in The Elder Scrolls games.

    With the upcoming new chapter, The Elder Scrolls Online High Isle, the ESO development team wants to take players to a whole new place and tell different types of stories they might have experienced in 2020 and 2021.

    Before that, the first thing players have to do is to buy ESO Gold in advance, and IGGM is the best choice. First of all, this site sells ESO Gold at a very cheap price and often gives out various coupons. Secondly, it has a 100% secure online payment system with a variety of payment methods for players to choose from. Players can consult customer service at any time if they do not understand anything in the process of trading.

    Best of all, 90% of ESO Gold orders are processed in less than 15 minutes. Once a player’s order is delayed or not shipped, they will issue a 100% refund. If you are worried about where to Buy ESO Gold, you must come here.

    Hi Sarah,

    I would like to apply for Ambassador status, living in Florida, I believe I can promote the vehicle with very good abilities. How can I apply, when the application area is closed.?

    Thanks

      Frenchy, Aptera is working hard on closer monitoring of requests here, but they have a large backyard of social media, etc. to cover. Your best course is to email your information request to, Ambassador@aptera.us. Happy to hear from excited Aptera fans.

      Frenchy – what part of Florida are you in? I want to do a test sit (to make sure it’s comfortable getting in and out) before buying and would prefer to see one here instead of flying to CA. Hoping to find an Ambassador that will let us sit in theirs. We are down in the Keys.

        Laura, Ambassadors do not have priority of delivery for vehicles unless they were early reserves of 400 mi paradigm vehicles. The rest of us are in the same pool you are. If you can identify one of the early paradigm reservations by name who is in FL, GA, or AL they may be able to help you out

        I am in FL but planning to go to San Diego as my reservation date is down the road my guess nine months.

    Oz is right about a large backyard of requests. That said, it doesn’t appear there is any monitoring of emails to Ambassador@aptera.us, based on my own experience. I emailed them my request to be an ambassador 2 weeks ago, after being ignored on my first request via the previous method of applying that did not use that email some 4 months ago. It looks like that first method used Survey Monkey, but it is no longer functioning. It would be nice if Aptera would simply email “sorry, but we have enough ambassadors already”, but I have yet to get even that basic of a response. In any case, it isn’t being handled very professionally.

      Philip – I know it is frustrating but remember these folks are trying to onboard and train hundreds of new people as we speak, in addition to creating a manufacturing operation, AND completing all the testing of the vehicle. I am sure their delays are unintentional. Hang in there, we need good people telling the world about Aptera.

      I hear you, Philip. It would help to get some sense from Aptera staff about the volume of email requests they have in the queue. Then at least we wouldn’t be left guessing about whether our message got lost or is behind 387 other messages they are working through. As Ron Miller said, it is a crazy busy time for the company with the move and the employee expansion on the front burner. For sure, it is frustrating to be left wondering what is really going on especially when it comes to getting involved in the ambassador program as you are trying to do.

    Except for “…battery options and more” there isn’t an Ambassador living who can answer your questions because Aptera hasn’t yet developed answers to them! The vehicle is still in the early stages of development and there are only four built examples: Three Alpha prototypes and one Beta prototype (that’s just a suspension test-rig). Most serious testing won’t begin until the Gamma or Delta level of prototyping is reached – up until then they’re still making basic engineering and design decisions.

      Agreed! I think most information is supposition at this time. As I understand it, ambassadors are not employees of the company and don’t work with/or in engineering. Their information comes from the group calls that all have access to when they are recorded and posted to social media. Also, if someone has a question, they can submit it directly to Aptera (As Leonard often suggests) to get an official answer. I have seen some of these and they are essentially saying what you are saying, “That information is not available yet”

      I think it is best to be patient and wait for Aptera to disclose “Official” information when it is ready and they feel comfortable doing so.

      Hi, Steve. Good luck with your video. Efficiency numbers are scattered about in a number of places. Obvious ones to mention are the low weight and low CD of Aptera. Latest Aptera brochure has some. Many of the Aptera update videos include quotes from Chris Anthony on the subject. The FAQ spreadsheet, currently taken down for updates, is another source.

      They may not be accepting any more applications for ambassadors. they had suspended reviewing/approving ambassador applications sometime ago. I am not sure if they have resumed. Either way, they owe you an answer.

    How do i apply to become a brand ambassador?

  • Richard Harris

    What are the actual benefits of becoming an official Aptera ambassador? I know there is no order/delivery upgrade. Is it to get information before the general public? Or is it simply to push the brand? Personally, I am going to educate my friends and family about Aptera. I don’t need any special ambassador designation to do that. Most of my friends and family are not the type to gravitate to EV technology, mainly due to political views. Too many on the “right” are knee jerk anti EV. I believe, if done properly, EV makes perfect sense. Are there drawbacks? Sure. Can they be overcome if done properly? Absolutely. I think Aptera does things right. I’m in the choice over mandate club. I plan to push Aptera’s great ideas to my circle of friends. The benefits of Aptera need to be pushed to the entire political spectrum. I will be an independent “ambassador”.

      Richard, there are very few specific benefits to becoming an official ambassador, although I did get a nice tour out of it. You learn more being in this forum than we get directly from Aptera. We all love the design and ethos of the company. We believe the world needs vehicles like this and want to do what we can to support them in their efforts. I do battle with those anti EV people all the time and sometimes do not even mention Aptera in the process. I figure they are not smart enough to understand. Nothing wrong with being an independent thinker or advocate. Good on you.
