Aptera Owner’s Club just posted that https://www.motormatchup.com website has included data sets for different Aptera configurations. These can be used to run a simulated drag race against another make and model car you choose. I ran my prospective 40kWh AWD Aptera against my Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. You get a very entertaining graphic portrayal of the “race” with results. It’s all “fantasy football”, but a real hoot! Try it out.
Wow. That’s an impressive 0-60 time for the 25kWh Aptera. That was the configuration I reserved originally thinking the lower curb weight of the 25kWh pack model would smoke the 40kWh pack model. However, the rumors about the 25kWh models being produced AFTER the 40kWh, 60kWh, and 100kWh models convinced me to switch to the 40kWh.
OZ is correct. The order of adding to the assembly line has always been 40 25 60 and 100. I have never heard or seen anything to the contrary. Forty will start first, then 25 added to 40, then 60 added to 40 and 25, and finally 100 added to 40,25,60. At that point all will be assembled on the line simultaneously.

I could see this annoying some paradigm+ reservation holders that will end up waiting. From a numbers perspective it makes total sense that the 1000 will be the least ordered but it is also an incredible showpiece for marketing purposes.
Well, since I don’t own a dog in this fight (and dog is the appropriate term for the performance of my 2018 Subaru Impreza) I used the one I wish I owned, the Tesla Model Y AWD. So happy to see my Aptera 600 AWD scorch the Tesla, thanks for the fun Ray!
