Does Aptera qualify for a Federal Tax Credit?

As you may have heard, 2 and 3-wheeled vehicles do not qualify for the federal tax credit. But not to worry— we have a team in D.C. working hard to fix this. In the coming weeks, you will hear from the Aptera team about how you can help. Spreading our story to any and everyone is our most effective tool to garner more support at the Federal level.
Because Aptera is in pre-production, time is on our side. By harnessing the power of the sun, our solar mobility is a cleaner and more eco-friendly way to move around. We are confident that we will be able to show Congress that our 3-wheeled sEV allows drivers to lessen their carbon footprint more than any other EV on the market, and therefore, Aptera should qualify.
Please look out for announcements from the team through our email newsletter and social channels @aptera_motors. We’ll also keep you informed on tax credits specific to your state.

At Aptera, we believe efficient transportation is crucial to managing our natural resources. With a focus on efficiency, Aptera makes better use of materials in construction and in their use. This saves resources we cannot afford to waste and lessens our overall impact on the planet and each other.

Why are we different?

Aptera has the longest range of any electric vehicle ever created – breaking the 1,000 mile per charge barrier. Integrated solar can be configured to provide over 40 miles of range per day with over three square meters and 180 efficient solar cells designed into the body structure. This makes the Aptera the first vehicle capable of meeting most daily driving needs with solar power alone.We have solved key manufacturing challenges allowing for rapid, high-volume and cost-efficient vehicle production – Aptera has just six main pieces.
