    I’d be very happy, if Aptera could be bought with an additional seat for children. At least an Isofix system should be included to fix a children’s seat.

    They said it could be something to revisit but in a later iteration of the Aptera

    The “Aptera model” production start should allow them to move toward other > two seat configurations/vehicles.

    According to US safety regulations, only “Group 0” infant carriers can be used with only an ISOFIX mount: All other child carriers must use BOTH seat belts and ISOFIX.

    Although the storage deck will be lower in the beta prototype, there’s not a great deal of distance between the deck and the inner roof of the alphas, nor is there leg room between the seat backs and the deck.

      As opposed to an additional seat, is the passenger seat approved for child seats?

        In the state of Florida a child below the age of 12 can not sit in the “Front” seats of a car. They must sit in the “Back” seats. Even if there was a third seat Between the current driver and passenger seat in an Aptera, a child under 12 could not sit in it.

          Pretty sure that’s fairly standard (definitely is in Canada). Realistically it’s unlikely the current Aptera will have a 3rd seat option or any any way to legally use a child seat. Just not a family car; ideal as a sports car or for empty nesters. They have taken the current car amazingly far in the last 2 years. Any new coop (3 wheel) or larger (4 wheel) vehicle will probably be 2-3 years away.

            In Florida the autocycle designation has just been implemented so no child safety criteria specified. However, I don’t know any parent that would risk their child’s safety (Even in a safe Aptera) by putting them in a front seat simply because there is no back seat requirement for an autocycle.

    Ive been following this car for a while. I would pre-order right now, if there was a child seat. It’s not practical being a father with a car that I can’t transport my daughter in. Please release a child seat model some day and you will have my business!
