    Aptera writes: You can return your vehicle for a full refund after purchase within 7 days or 1,000 miles, whichever comes first. Does that mean after receiving the vehicle or after signing the sales contract?

    You could try but I would be surprised if not

      I wrote an email to aptera 5 days ago but haven’t received an answer yet

        Hi, Jacky. You’re not alone. Wanted to let you know that it has taken a long time for the Aptera team to respond to emails I have sent also. I’ve waited a week or more in a number of instances. I understand they are probably deluged with emails and don’t have a PR staff of 50 people (meaning I’m sure they’re doing the best they can with the personnel resources they have) so I have an opportunity to practice my patience which can use a little development! Guess I’m saying you’re not the only one for what that’s worth. Keep the faith. You’ll probably get an answer eventually.

    Some kind of drive before you own is a must. Maybe a location, even temporary, in every other state for a demo ride.

    The “7 days/1000 miles” return policy is most likely to compensate for the inability to test drive before purchase.

    This would be ok for local CA buyers, but is not going to be practical for those all the way across the country. Personally I’m ok with coming to the manufacturing location for test drives.

    This also brings up the issue of how can Aptera be delivered across the country. In looking into this, the width prevents it from being transported on all of the usual transportation carriers for either cars or motorcycle trikes. I’d like to know if Aptera has already come up with a solution for this.

      And then I’m wondering how the return (hard to imagine this) would be handled. Who would pay for the return? I guess the owner could just put it up on eBay and most likely turn a profit.

    Hi Dirk! I’m checking with the team and will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Thank you so much,

    For those picking up Aptera in California remember to take Rt. 66 when driving home.

      I’m planning going up, what I consider, to be one of the most beautiful drives in the world. 395. Hopefully it will be the time of year that the Aspens have gained their color. And the air has that crispness to it that says Winter is coming.

      And then up and through Yosemite or 108 and over Sonora Pass. Ending in Oakland.

      It’s going to be sublime.

    Not too unlike early (current?) Tesla, I’d guess they will ship it to you and start the clock when you accept delivery. If you refuse, or wish to return it, they say “OK, fine, can we make you a different one?” and send the original to the nearest reservation holder. BTW, trucks that can carry heavy (wide) pickups can carry Aptera, provided a center load path. Or, flat-bed/floor truck or trailer. Plenty of precedents out there.
