    OK, the company & make name is “Aptera” just like “Ford”. However, what will be the model name(s) (since even motorcycles have make & model names)? I think the states require both make & model designations to register a vehicle. I understand the very first limited-edition models will be the Aptera Paradigm so I’m curious as to what model the rest of us will be getting.

    The company is Aptera Motors Corporation

    The first vehicle is simply being called Aptera now….

    Yes there are two (limited number) models:

    Paradigm edition (220 units)

    Paradigm Plus (110 units)

    If you go by the std exterior color offerings there are names like these, revealed on the alpha development vehicles:

    Noir a matte black Aptera

    Sol a matte white Aptera

    Luna a brushed aluminum ( silver ) Aptera

    ( You can order optional custom colored too )

    As I understood it

    Will there be other names????

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    As a game changing vehicle, the first vehicle is just an “Aptera” by Aptera. A future sedan may be a “Peoplehauler” by Aptera. Future variations of the “Aptera” may get some sort of designator or year tag. The color schemes are the color schemes, just like any other car maker has. Don’t get me started on what the Paradigm and Paradigm+ editions likely really are….

    Here is a link to ideas for model names people on the forum came up with.

    Internally and in some legal filings, Aptera called this “The Roadster”. But they decided to simplify and just refer to it as the Aptera. Paradigm and Paradigm+ are merely trim levels of the same model.

      So using the Make/Model/Engine and/or Trim designations, like my VW / Jetta Wagon / TDI GLS, they will be the Aptera / Aptera / Paradigm or Paradigm+

        I’d break it down a little bit differently.

        Aptera / Aptera / 40kWh / Paradigm

        Aptera / Aptera / 100kWh / Paradigm+

    Right ! and since these limited edition models were prepackaged “at offered price”…this might mean something “for some “ Until we know production specs….

    Re the …

    Paradigm 40kWh

    -FWD, Full solar, Enhanced Audio

    Paradigm + 100kWh

    -Same

    Since I wanted an Aptera…

    Sol (Matte white/ black trim )

    60 kWh

    *AWD

    *Full Solar

    * Safety Pilot

    * Off Road kit

    ** Pet Kit

    **Camping kit

    I chose the above * options

    ** these are just simple kits

    And the std VIDA interior

    Folks can order custom exterior color ( wrap) and interiors

    And the beauty of reservation pre-ordering…. You don’t have to commit until it becomes an order!
