    That is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. Any way we can reduce oil consumption the better. And to do it in this machine would give a whole new view on the world!

    Wow! You’ve got to be kidding me. Really nice car there.
    How much does it cost to have one?

  • http://ApteraForum.com Aptera Forum

    Price will be under $30,000

    In the future Aptera make a green car that looks like a regular car.

    Don’t try to go all out and crazy futuristic, everyone knows that sh@!# never goes further than concept.

    Oh and $30,000 what a rip off. Do you know how many golf carts I could buy with that?!?!

    Next time build a car, don’t try to reinvent the wheel.

  • Nuno Lagoa

    Great looking and great concept.
    But there’s always a but.
    But the front wheels are too large and unwieldy to park. If they were brought closer to the centre it would make things so much easier…

    Good idea, except for one thing. If you plug that car into an outlet, that energy is coming from a power plant where…GUESS WHAT! Fossil Fuels are being burned!

    The only way to have this car be “green” is if one were to charge the car with a wind turbine or some other green generator.

    Green Noobs…

    @ Alan,

    You are right, however, if we restrict ourselves to things that are only “Pure Green” then we’d never get anything done on the eco front. Yes this car indirectly uses fossil fuels, but I’d be willing to wager that it is far less than a car that is burning straight gasoline.

    I think that this is great and I don’t mind that it looks like it’s from outer space, that makes it even cooler. Who wants to just blend into the crowd? I know that not everyone feels this way, and I can see how the outlandish design concept might make it hard for them to appeal to the the all the John Does out there. For the sake of getting more people into efficient cars I think it would be good to offer a more subdued design as well. Just my two cents!

    The design is just not mainstream on this one. Tesla on the other hand had a more mainstream electric that will sell well IMO.
