Does Aptera qualify for a federal tax credit?

It’s difficult to say how certain we are of qualifying for the tax credit. We have a team in D.C. working hard to make it happen in the time leading up to production. We will provide updates as we receive them on our Move page at Because we are technically classified as an autocycle, we have not been included in the current legislation. Please look out for announcements from the team. We will also keep you informed on tax credits specific to your state.

Spreading our story to any and everyone is our most effective tool to garner more support at the Federal level. We look forward to driving positive change into motion with you as we shift the paradigm.
We hope to show Congress that our 3-wheeled sEV allows drivers to lessen their carbon footprint more than any other EV on the market; therefore, Aptera should qualify. 

Who founded Aptera?

Hear from our fearless leaders, co-founders and co-CEOs, Chris Anthony and Steve Fambro.



How was Aptera created?

Aptera was created by Chris Anthony and Steve Fambro in an effort to make a better future for the planet possible through more efficient transportation. You can learn more about how Aptera was conceived and launched in this video.

What is Aptera’s mission?

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.

What sets us apart?

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 up to 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. In addition, we have solved key manufacturing challenges allowing for rapid, high-volume and cost-efficient vehicle production – Aptera has just six main pieces.
