    I believe I attempted a while ago. However, I never heard back. Maybe It was closed. Thankfully, I have submitted the application again and am eagerly awaiting a reply!

    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 Harris – It’s unfortunate that those on the far “right” take any mandates as personal attacks on them. It takes mandates to force legacy automakers and energy companies to adapt and innovate instead of resting comfortably on their current profit margins. Can you imagine where we could be now if GM had not scrapped the urban electric car back in 1973 and continued to develop it? It took a start up that was able to stay in business long enough to produce a viable electric vehicle.

      There was always a market for electric vehicles, but it wasn’t until Tesla that it was offered anything that wasn’t a weird one-off low-range prototype. They kept on pushing and refining till they could give the people what they have been needing and wanting for a very long time. If GM had kept pushing, electric cars would probably have been commonplace back in the late 90’s.

        Legacy industries of all kinds often get stuck in a “rut”. It can be understandable, given the risks involved with innovation, both fiscally, and reputation. I remain a firm believer in market driven solutions. I also understand the need for sometimes giving industry a little “push”, or incentive. Elon Musk took the risk, I believe, based on his faith in the concept. I believe Aptera is doing likewise. I think this can be evidenced by the fact that Aptera didn’t freak out when they were exempted from the Inflation Reduction Act’s $7500 tax credit. They still believe they can be successful with out it, even though it probably would have helped them greatly.

      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.
