    I am not sure if I missed it, but did they publish expected braking distance? In a light car/auto cycle safety comes down to the ability to avoid an incident. Acceleration is more than adequate and I am hoping braking distance is the same. Any thoughts or facts regarding this issue ?

    Outside of the moose test, nothing has been stated as of yet. They may be waiting for crash testing and such. Seems like it would have been a good time at the track to test and get/give some numbers on braking distances. Just one more thing to throw up on top of the “wait and see” pile.

    Pretty light, and majority of stopping power comes from front wheels which aptera has 2 of. I’m guessing 60mph-0 in 115ft or less, and that we should be more aware of the tailgater behind us….

    Also I think the regenerative brakes on the new porsche gave it the record for shortest stopping distance. I guess it will depend how high we have the regen set
