    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.

    Mine won’t be replacing anything.

    I drive A 2004 F250 and won’t be selling it off. The truck is much needed in my life. My Aptera will be a fun alternative for all the times I don’t need a truck.

    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

    I plan to keep both Apterae I have ordered. Identically configured. Both fully loaded, optioned, accessorized.

    I’m currently driving a Jaguar XJL whereas my wife drives a Ford RAPTOR. We love our current vehicles as they’ve both been good to us; it’s just time to do our part and go all electric.

    One Caveat: She loves the new Rivian.

    That said, we’ll wait for Aptera & honor our commitment to the product; arrival then full evaluation.

    If she subsequently chooses on an electric truck (Rivian & whatever), I’ll keep the second Aptera, maybe sell it, but most likely it will then pass into family hands & domain. Will deal with that if need be, and then. Hopefully it’s all Aptera, ie. both loving “everything” when they arrive; satisfying all our expectations. I won’t consider any other alternatives (for either of us) until then.

    Excited for the Apterae (pluralized) to arrive! ????????

    Technically I’ll be replacing my obsession with having a small sports car.

    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.

    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!

    My Aptera will be replacing my 2010 Outback. It’s likely thrt by the time I actually get my Aptera I won’t have the need for all five seats + the cargo capacity, so I should be good.

    I currently drive a Mazda 3 but my plan is to alternate between that and the aptera, give the sun a couple days to top off the aptera so I don’t have to plug it in while exercising the Mazda regularly so it doesn’t rot.

    Kids growing, need an extra car. I’m probably losing my Mazda CX5, will use the Aptera as my daily.

    A 2013 Subaru Outback. By the time my number is called all the kids will be in or finished with Uni. Looking forward to a Nat’l Park road tour in a fun 2-seater!

    I will be replacing my 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited. I really like this car a lot but I can’t wait for my Aptera! Unfortunately it is going to be a while…
