    Guys, I am figuring what is going on if my Aptera if for any reason it is out of service on the road, highway due low battery charge, a failure, or a simple break down that allows moving on its own wheels, etc. but need been pulled with a leach or rope from another helping driver?

    Does the Aptera ‘s nose has a pulley eye, or a threated base where install a hook or something similar? I had not seen anything in forum, discussions or either videos.

    Thank you for reading!

    Towing

    Can it be Towed and Charge by regeneration? Unoccupied? Will BMS and Drive Soft/Hardware have that Feature/Mode available?

      adapting motor to screw into average trailer? current motor is heavy, probably requires suspension unlike whats in a average trailer or else motor damage.

    Hmmm – @my Discord… : I guess I was Too Terse in My Query.

    What I was asking was: If an operational Aptera is Flat towed (all three wheels on the Road Surface), Can it Regenerate to charge its battery? Is the Software/Hardware capable of this “Enhancement”? I guess it would require a “Sense” signal from the Braking system of the Tow Vehicle, in order not to be Like a Mule that Refuses to be led away. Maybe Lightest level of Regeneration most of the time, but going to Full/Heavy Regeneration when the Brakes of the Tow Vehicle are Applied Until the Batteries are full.

    Makes me wonder about Regenerative Braking when the Batteries are Full: Is there a Resistive “Dissipator” Bank that absorbs Regenerated Electricity when the Battery (Cue Scotty Doohan’s Voice): “She canna take any More, Jim”?

      There will likely be a freewheel mode, for such towing situations.
