    This is great news. More people will be able to invest where the $1k was a barrier for some.

    Yes thank you for setting this up, for I was one who at present was not able to commit a full $1000.00 until January of 2023, but now I have invested, not much, but that will change in the future…. nice! Thank You again!

    Can everybody invest in Aptera using Republic no matter which state your residency is in? I could not invest using Apter’s investment page because my residency is in South Dakota. Just checking before I go through the process and being denied at the final step.

      I am no expert in SD investment law, but you probably would have the same problem, because I doubt SD’s laws have changed in regards to these investments.

      I had no idea that SD is a worse ‘nanny state’ than CA!

        It has nothing to do with SD investment laws! It has to do with the agent being registered in SD. I invested in 4 previous investment rounds with no problem but the platform on Apter’s website has denied me and some others from investing because of our residency. Hawaii is another state they are not registered in according to another individual trying to invest. I contacted Aptera and they said they were working on the problem which was a month ago. Now they are also raising money on the Republic platform and I have contacted both Aptera and Republic but no response yet. So I am asking on this community forum to see if there is any verification before I try again.

          I was so disappointed when I was not able to invest because I live in Hawaii. Now I am so happy because I am now able to invest via the Republic offering and have, and will continue to do so. Give it a try, hopefully it will work for you in SD now also !

    Are perks for each tier cumulative?

    Very happy to kick in my $210 — perhaps more next year. The process with Republic was very convenient. Here’s hoping a large portion of the 38K+ reservation holders can make this small investment in getting Apterae across the production finishing line!

    As of Sunday morning, December 18th, the Republic website shows a tally of 362 investors have put in a total of $446,000+. Let’s encourage more reservation holders to ante up $210 or more to put Aptera into production mode! I know $446K is a long way from the amount needed to get production going, but it’s a good start.

    Great to see that after such a short time the investments are almost $0.5M.

    If you browse the discussions you will find answers by the Aptera team to a lot of questions that are just a speculation at this forum.

    For example the 3rd seat:

    We like the idea of the third seat but it is far down on our priorities list right now. I’d expect us to be able to work on this in 2024. And I would think it would only be possible on the 250 and 400 mile range options.

    Or the supplemental solar charging:

    We will work on supplemental solar charging that you can set up for extra charging when traveling or camping. But this is another low priority item. We’ve designed in extra room to our solar charge controller and we will work on an accessory kit for this once we’re in production. Hopefully it will be a lightweight kit that can add another 1,000W or more to your charging capability.

    RV towing:

    We haven’t trialed this yet but think it can be done relatively easily with some software changes and a kit to attach to the suspension arms. Once we get done with general vehicle validation next year we will start to work on cool extra functionality like this.

    All wheel drive model, power only to the front wheels for saving energy:

    Yes, we will modulate power between the wheels to be the most efficient at a given cruising speed. We still have a good bit of testing to do with Elaphe to refine these controls.

    This is great news, it would be a progressive opportunity for thousands of individuals to take part. Before this announcement was made I made a second $1,008.00 purchase; truly doubling down. Aptera must have operating capital to get our vehicle on the road. I can sit on the sideline or dig into my pocket book and assist to make this happen as best I can. What can one person do? I chose to put my money to work to assist in making this happen. I do not have a YouTube channel, my work keeps me occupied beyond a reasonable ability to do much as an ambassador. There are thousands of us who with a small squeeze, tightening of the belt could become an important factor to make this happen. Of course if you have $50 million lying about that would really make it happen.

    Past minimum $1,000 investors should also get the one free pre-order reservation perk as an incentive to invest even more.

    I was excited when the option to invest through Republic was announced! So far I have invested only $240+ in it, but the small minimum allows me to invest a little every month.

    How does one get the free reservation after investing $1000 through Republic? My brother invested and hasn’t figured out how to get the free reservation.

    Is this program still running? Are funds deposited here easily transferred or count towards the accelerator program?

    • glenn-zajic

      February 3, 2023 at 11:09 am

      Uncle, Funds towards the accelerator program must be deposited thru the Aptera website. Republic deposits will be included in total invested, but not towards the $10,000, but yes it is still running.

    The total investment went from $1.7M to $1.2M sometime over the last couple of days. Anyone have any insight into that?

    Was/is Republic banking with SVB?

    • Biker

      March 21, 2023 at 5:08 pm

      According to an answer in another thread, no, Republic is not affected by the SVB failure.

    This is great and looking forward to a successful launch of Aptera this time around!!
    I invested through just today, not realizing that the investment capability was here as well now (when I last looked it was not). Can I still get a free reservation (I was going to invest anyway so I figured might as well not pay an extra 100$).
    If this is possible, how do I do that?

    (NOTE: I’ve looked around a bit but not a lot… this has been asked elsewhere on the forum without answer by someone else. Putting the question here in case it’s more likely to get an answer… )

      You should contact Aptera directly via their contact page and ask directly- Aptera staff don’t monitor these threads that often.

      Mathew, there is one way that I know of that will get you a free reservation. Investing $10,000 does it. It doesn’t have to be a one time bulk commitment. As long as your total investment adds up to 10k. You do not need to be on the Leader Board, as that investment starts at a minimum one time 10k commitment.
