    I have a Moose test question.

    I see in the vehicle dynamics test video they do a run starting at 2.39 and finish at 2.45. (rough but conservative measurement)

    6 seconds to run 110m ( track length is 110m from first to last cone according ISO 3888-2:2011) means an average speed of 18.33m/s .

    18.33m/s means average speed is 66km/h.

    Why is nobody jumping for joy about beating the Moose?

    Aptera Owners Club did a video on it a month ago – definitely important. When done with production intent polished vehicle it will actually count. https://youtu.be/9BRaKbWQdxY

    Fyi: Both I and Brian Jacobsen used different methods and calculated 72 kph average.

      Yep, more like 72km/h.

      My number is low and conservative so that the trolls on Youtube would find it impossible to reasonably contest.

      For me what will count will be when all configurations (Combination of wheels driven and battery size) in production ready vehicles are tested and the results published. I believe wheel configuration and battery size will have a measurable effect on moose testing and speed of successful completion.

      I ordered a 400mi two wheel drive with full solar. I want to see the performance numbers for that configuration.
