    To start with, my Aptera will replace my 2004 Chevy Impala. I may sell that off soon as many dealerships are begging for vehicles. Depending on how I can stuff work tools and ladders into the car, it may also replace a 2011 GMC Sierra. I would probably end up with the Aptera before my number comes up for the CyberTruck.

    Probably replace my 1999 Solectria Force. The Force is my faithful daily driver and with a power consumption of 190 watt hours per mile it is hard to beat. The power hungry EVs that have come out this century haven’t impressed me. Glad these guys started working on the Aptera again!

    It will be directly replacing my 2018 Nissan Leaf, which was my daily commuter pre-pandemic (I only leave the house once or twice a week these days).

    But it will also be taking over road trip duties when it’s just my wife and I (currently we drive her 2014 Prius, which we’ll likely be replacing with a 2022 Prius).

    I am selling a 2018 KIA Soul I bought for basic transportation. I have not need for a car until my Aptera is delivered so I am getting rid of this. I drive a diesel guzzling semi 10-12,000 miles per month. It would be great to make this money doing anything else.

    I would be replacing a one already most sustainable vehicle. The Stromer ST2 YES!!

    And yes the Aptera would become the commuter in the flat Netherlands for a 40 mile daily trip and

    the ST@ would become the fun weekend vehicle…

    My modded 2019 VW Jetta. It gets 46 mpg when put on eco mode. It also has Open pilot installed for level 2 autonomy drives which I hope aptera’s will be as good or has the capacity to be able to install in. I love my car but fuel and maintenance costs at this day in age are too much. I Will miss the custom exhaust.

    The Aptera would be replacing my 92 Honda Civic CX (Aerocivic) that I aeromodded to reduce the cd to 0.16.

    I have to lol at the number of people replacing an existing EV/hybrid.

    I’m going to be replacing the worst gas guzzler of them all… a 2000 Corvette that gets 24mpg on a good day.

    Ironically, this little 3 wheeler will have a better 0 to 60 time.

    A 2013 Tesla Model S. It was great back then but feels awfully inefficient now. I love road trips, and I want to travel with less impact.

    Replacing my 2007 Honda Accord

    I’ll be keeping my 2003 Cadillac DeVille for a while longer just in case (we tend to get power outages for 1-2 weeks when a hurricane passes by) until I know for sure by not charging it for a month that the Solar Panels can give the Aptera good mileage reliably when it can’t be charged from a power cord.

    It “might” be replacing a Fiat 500. The length of the Aptera though is an issue about getting rid of the 500. We bought the Fiat because we live in a congested city and having the ability to park in spots that 99% of other cars cannot is important.

    Still getting the Aptera but maybe not getting rid of the 500.

    My Luna will be replacing my trusty and only slightly rusty 2000 Saturn LW2 wagon. I don’t need the cargo capacity like I used to and moving from gas to electrons makes me feel good. Getting the solar assist? Even better!

    My Aptera will displace my trusted 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with 200,000 on it. It is the family’s. second vehicle

    A 2015 Volt or 2013 Prius, whichever one croaks first!! They’re both getting up there in miles, though we’ll likely just drop the insurance on one & drive the other until it’s battery farts out and its only value is scrap metal then do the same to the one that is left. In all honesty, we don’t like getting rid of something just because a new shiny thing caught our eye. There needs to be an efficiency gain/carbon offset to getting something new. Both our cars now have long since lost their resale value and we’re just waiting on the engine or battery to reach the end of its service life.

    A 2011 Ford Fiesta my wife drives. I already have a Tesla Model 3 so this will make us a 100% EV family.

    My trusty old 2001 Prius. It should have retired a year ago. But I am keeping it going until I get my Aptera.

      Since then I have gotten an Arcimoto FUV to cut down on using the Prius that the A/C failed on. The FUV has the added bonus of gaining experience with an autocycle and dodging potholes with three wheels.

    The Aptera will replace my humble, trusty but increasingly rusty 2000 Ford Focus.

    The APTERA will be the “Parsimonius Counterbalance” Runabout, saving the Three different Yessiree Good Buddy Monster SUV 4X4s for Hunting and Rough Road Motoring: 2002 Chev Tahoe, 2017 Chev Sierra Crewcab Pickemup, and Polaris XP 700.

    My Aptera will be replacing my 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. I just see it as stepping up my game!
