Just like a linebacker poised for the blitz, theAptera takes a wide, three-point stance that makesthe vehicle very stable, yet very agile. Push on thethrottle, turn the wheel and the Aptera’s neutralchassis carves through corners like it’s on rails.The buttery-style doors open upwards, not out-wards. So no matter how tight your parking spotis, you’ll never have trouble opening the door wideenough to get out.Birds glide gracefully through the air, so why notexpect your vehicle to do the same? Drawing inspi-ration from nature, the Aptera slips through the airinstead of pushing it.The efciency meter helps you keep trackof the energy you’re using. It also aidsin establishing bragging rights. Pleaseuse respectfully.Drive in comfort with your controls justa touch away. Placed just where you’dexpect them, you can focus on the roadinstead of your dash.
Time to put all those playlists to work.Simply plug ‘n’ play music through theaudio system, and with the push of abutton, switch over for that importantincoming call.
