I know it will never happen, since they will want to analyze the data and tell us how it is that the car got destroyed instead of the dummies who made it out unscathed. I for one would love to put on some popcorn and watch the crashes in real time even if we don’t get the results right away.

I will be satisfied with seeing the results of the testing. I would like the testing done and the results soon!

I remember seeing a video of them trying to destroy a first gen body shell, with a fork lift, that was done about 10 years ago. If the material now is similar, it is very tough.
They have mentioned that the new body shells parts may be made by more than one vendor to assure the numbers needed for full production can be assured. Currently we only have evidence that they have been able to produce about one shell per month on a proto type rate.
When they get to the point of making at least four Delta’s in a month, then crash testing can begin.

Crash testing needs to be complete before retail sales and delivery begins so can’t wait until four Deltas are manufactured and tested or delivery will be delayed. Aptera will have a testing approach and schedule which will include all required testing. Aptera knows best how to conduct testing to complete it as expeditiously as possible.
We should wait until Aptera shares the testing plan. Let’s not speculate and start a rumor.

Aptera could offer a “Watch crash test live” fund raiser that the highest bidder could win.

If I win can I ride in the car during the test. Should be fun.

You’d have to be a real dummy to do that!!!
- MemberAugust 5, 2022 at 8:06 am
Sure…..do that. Then can I have your place in the delivery line????😄

Some target stickers on your face and blue paint on your nose! I’d be in for a pay per view!

I hope it’ll at least be available on YouTube.

How I imagine the offset frontal crash test to look
Hopefully not how it turns out

I am not so sure anyone should watch a test crash of the vehicle they drive in. Every such test looks ugly and will always be on our mind as we drive the vehicle.

Yes Aptera should provide a live stream of the crash test, and this video clip is telling why it is a good idea:
