The Aptera business model is a purchase model not subscription.
When you reserve your Aptera, you select the configuration of the vehicle and premium features you wish to add. The price for the configuration you choose is displayed. When it comes time to order you may make changes and then execute a purchase agreement for that configuration. You get all you select and all that enables that functionality for the purchase price.
At some point there may be over the air functionality available as an upgrade or additional functionality not ready at the time of first production vehicles. At this point, since Aptera is still in the testing phase, we have no infomation on what that may be or if an owner will have to pay for it if they want it. I believe that if it was a feature originally in the plan for the vehicle, there will not be a charge. If it is something new, it is completely reasonable the we would pay for it if we want it.
All will be clear before delivery to customers begins to avoid surprises or misunderstanding.
Without question, Aptera is a remarkable value. Pinch yourself. It will hurt you are not in a dream!
There won’t be any $10,000 up charges for self driving like I was asked to pay when I bought my Tesla Model 3.
