The southern California-based electric vehicle startup, Aptera Motors has emerged with an extraordinary battery-powered three-wheeler that is earning popularity for all the favourable reasons – it doesn’t require charging (on a sunny day). It comes kitted with a solar package that facilitates more than 40 miles (64 Km) of ‘free’ driving every day and is claimed to be the world’s ‘first vehicle that won’t need to fuel up for most daily driving.’
“40 miles doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s the equivalent of parking your car and having it magically fill up with two gallons of gas overnight,” Aptero co-founder Steve Fambro was quoted saying.
BIG NEWS! Preorders for the limited edition Paradigm and Paradigm+ models have officially SOLD OUT in less than 24 hours. Cheers to those who made our launch such an amazing success.

The EV maker moreover contends that there’s an alternative to enlarge the range further (by 35 miles) by selecting to opt for supplementary panels over the car’s hood and hatch.
“So the fact that you can park it at work or wherever and go back to it with more energy in the tank than when you left it – have it charge itself without having to pay a dime to drive it every day. That’s the kind of freedom I think a lot of people would love,” Fambro added.
