I definitely want the 66kw battery, full solar cell package and AWD. Looks like a folding rear seat is going to be available, so I would add that.
Kind of a silly request, but the Aptera has such a happy disposition to it that I hope they use a beep horn to compliment its personality 🙂

Just go to an auto recycling yard and find a space saver spare that will fit over the motor and has the same bolt pattern as whatever will be used on the Aptera.

A wheel, instead of the yoke. Could also use some buttons, knobs and sliders for things like air vents, heating, cooling, radio, …. Things you use often while driving and don’t want to search for on a flat screen.

Given the right to repair attitude hopefully they will put some threaded inserts on the back of the yoke; this would make it easy to make an attachment to round the yoke. Ideally 3rd parties can add custom buttons bound to api calls for anything you would want physical controls for. With a focus on cost things wont necessarily be standard especially if most people don’t want them but customization should be encouraged.

If the yoke is mounted the same way as steering wheels (on a splined shaft with a clock spring, and airbag) then it should just be a matter of removing the yoke, replacing it with a wheel, then making the airbag & horn connections (assuming Aptera doesn’t put the horn “button” on the central display).
