    Everyone, thanksfor your input. I’ve never doubted that Aptera’s EVs are superior than the other startups. I’m waiting eagerly to get my hands on one. Many have advised against getting a SEV since I live in Vancouver, BC. However, I’m curious to find out for myself what kind of range (solar recharging) I would get in a region that’s not known to get as much solar energy throughout the year.

    Hi Sarah, I’ve applied to the ambassador program a couple of weeks ago. I live in British Columbia, Canada and I’d like to be involved in helping Aptera gain traction in the Canadian EV market.

    Many people I’ve spoken to have concerns about how Aptera EV’s will perform in adverse weather conditions primarily excessive rain and snow. I’ve already been clarifying people’s doubts through word of mouth and intend to start a YouTube channel to reach more people.

    I’m a pre-order holder and an investor. Everything in nature has been optimized to use least amount of energy to get the job done and I’m stoked that Aptera is trying to replicate nature in that sense. I’m a strong believer in efficiency and truly want to assist Aptera succeed in an effort to contributing to a better world for our children and the future generations to come.

    These are all good points and one which stands out to me is that, in order for Aptera to succeed and get traction in the EV market (North America) it needs to begin production asap. I understand it’s easier said than done, however the competition is going to heat up real quick. As a firm believe in efficiency, and a desire to do my bit in saving the planet I’m a strong advocate for Aptera.

    I don’t doubt that Aptera will be able to deliver, I Just hope that they are able to deliver in time.

    Let me know if I can help.

    That’s not good. Is there something we could do ahead of time to start a conversation about 3 wheeled highly efficient vehicles being subsidized by the Canadian government?

    Aptera Will be at a disadvantage when it comes to capturing Canadian market share. Tesla and other legacy automakers will have cars priced around the 25k mark pretty soon and Aptera will have a tough time going head to head with these giants.

    I want Aptera to succeed and I’m an investor myself. I align myself with the company’s vision however we need Aptera to start mass production before other company’s. Agree?

    Let’s assume an average American who has used an ICE vehicle all his/her life has decided to switch to electric. What factors will he/she consider?

    1. Cost

    2. Range

    3. Charging infrastructure

    4. Industry leading tech (4680 cells)

    5. # of passengers vehicle can carry.

    These are just a few from among the many factors involved in the decision making process. My point is, in order for Aptera to be the choice mode of transport for this average consumer, it has to check most of these boxes. Either that and/or beat Tesla and other legacy automotive to the punch by making production ready vehicles asap.

    Yes there is no apples to apples comparison between Aptera and Tesla but at the end of the day, they are EV’s. Thinking purely from an average consumer’s perspective I believe that in order for Aptera to gain traction and grow rapidly we need to do everything possible to get these EV’s in the hands of consumers asap.
