What you want for reverse is a predictable response. Most ICE vehicles are limited by the gearing of reverse which typically a higher ratio than low gear in forward. EVs typically perform better than ICE vehicles because the primary difference between forward and reverse is the polarity of the juice.
I remember a video four or five years ago where some guy raced a Nissan Leaf around a course at like 25-30, maybe even 35 mph.
The reality is most folks just hardly ever use reverse and would be uncomfortable trying to do more than park or reverse out of a garage.
I would imagine the way the issue is solved is by recalibrating the accelerator to require more movement to accelerate quickly in reverse. The power would be there but you would have to want it more.
What is really wonderful about the Aptera is its ability to have torque vectoring out the wazoo. Seriously, one could program a verbal command for a rally-type kick of the rear end around style of back road racing that involves cameras and processing in some future app. Or a the thing is modulated by a true virtual handbrake.
There should be a process to develop those kinds of applications with vetting before they are widely available to the community.
