    I was on a brief road trip through Arkansas the other day and passed the ubiquitous Google Street View car on the interstate and that got me thinking. Aptera should make a pitch to Google to replace their Street View fleet with 1000M Apterae. Seems like it would be a great cost-saving decision for them. Yes, I realize that the camera would cut down on the efficiency and aerodynamics but it still would get great range. Anyway, I’ve got Aptera-on-the-brain Syndrome. I guess.😆

    Google should be approached about adding a fleet of Apteras. Good idea!

    Also, Apple has similar vehicles so they should be approached.

    I don’t think the drop in efficiency should be that bad at “street view” speeds, should it?

    They are only driving about 20-30mph, right?

      When I passed the one on the interstate he was going around 60

    It’ll be cool if there was an Aptera icon for Google maps.
