Aptera Releases Full Spec List at TED

Aptera, who we've been following for years now, is finally letting the public take a look at the production model of it's fancy, fish-shaped electric / hybrid-electric car.

So now those folks who've put deposits down on their Aptera actually know what they'll be getting. Things we didn't know include an optional rear-view camera, seats made from recycled plastic, a DVD based navigation system, an proximity-unlock / auto-start smart key.

The coefficient of drag, as expected, is phenomenal at 0.15 (the 2004 Prius is about 0.26.) Airbags will keep passengers safe, though as this "car" is technically a motorcycle in most states, it won't be held to the same safety standards. Aptera, however, seems to be making the car as safe as possible, with the same crumple zones and cheap cialis australia seat-belt systems that you'd see in any other car.

A spec listing being handed out at the TED conference was transcribed by Josh at the Aptera forums and is available below.

Two important things we don't know...the price and the delivery date. When Aptera first released it's plans, they said the car would be $20,000, but that price has been rising steadily and it's now expected to be no more than $40,000. The delivery date has also been pushed back more than 10 months, much to tramadol official site the disappointment of folks who've put down their deposit. Aptera's most recent announcement has the first deliveries taking place this October.

We can say it as eco-friendly car.

wow. it sure looks amazing. it would be nice to have a test drive or smth to check it.
Width, test drives
written by Rei, February 04, 2009
1) Aptera has stated that they are aware of 5 mg cialis concerns over the width, and will be addressing that before the get viagra fast final release.

2) There should be a video of one of the test drives up later today.

For the latest information, stay tuned over at the Aptera Forum (
CdA drag area is non generic cialis important, not drag coe
written by Carl, February 04, 2009
One of my peeves is marketing literature that makes aerodynamic claims (really styling) and claims of low drag coefficient, but cross sectional area is usually more important, and the drag*area product is what matters. The Aptera is good not only for drag coefficient, but also reduced area. See

It would be great to only quote drag area in any spec mentioned, not drag coefficient. (Same as quoting MPG not engine efficiency.)

Rear view cameras too costly or wouldn't pass the regulations?

From 20K to 40K - nice job of economizing.
Well, never mind...
written by flux_flux, February 06, 2009
Well there goes my plan of getting one...I could do 20,000...but not 40,000. Guess I'll go start a company and make toilet paper out of viagra pharmacy in india bamboo to propecia sale make up the difference.
Cost and accessories
written by JSTDADD, February 07, 2009
Cost is $27,000 to $40,000. Electric strippo expect $27,000 or a little more. Many, many options including bigger (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery pack to increase range to 120 miles. The hybrid version, to ship in 2010, is expected to start around $30,500.

Rumor (and California Law for Motorcycles) says that the small exterior mirrs are required (at least one) and they do get rid of a bad blind spot just to the rear of the doors. Rear facing camera is likely an option and generic form of cialis they are showing an LCD projection on the left quarter of the windshield-mounted rear-view mirror. Over the past year they changed to front-wheel drive, which reduces noise, improves reliability and regenerative braking. The range (100 miles) is at 55 mph, so it is a pretty good number. Don't let small horsepower confuse you because electric motor horsepower is cheapest price for cialis not comparable to gas motor horsepower in vehicle use. Aptera stated this week that 0-60mph performance is less than 9 seconds.
