According to a 5/5/2022 CleanTechnica article “Maryland Stops Treating 3-Wheeled Cars Like Motorcycles”. Maryland’s autocycle law (applicable to the Aptera, Polaris Slingshot, Archimoto FUV, and ElectraMeccanica among others, presumably) required that the vehicle have a steering wheel. The Archimoto FUV has a handlebar. Maryland changed the law to replace “wheel” with “mechanism.” This would have affected the Aptera only if a “yoke” is not considered a “steering wheel” (probably not the case). But now that ambiguity has been eliminated.
Anyway, Aptera is mentioned in the article a few times, which is a good thing.
