The Aptera 2E is one of the most expected cars in history, the Aptera is a futuristic-looking car, aptera motors has been working on the vehicle for many years, and setbacks have pushed the release date back to some time this year. In case you don’t know about it. the official confirm that be released before 2012, and the price is fairly from the mid-$20,000s to mid-$40,000s depending on drive-train and other options.

The first person to drive and review Aptera 2E is Jay Leno. The Aptera 2e Series was designed from the ground up, focusing on aerodynamics as one of its main efficiency measures. It (formerly the Aptera Typ-1) is a high-efficiency passenger vehicle, which is two-seat three wheels electric car. It is currently in the final stages of design by Aptera Motors. They are currently accepting pre-orders from California residents.

Aptera Motors claims the Aptera 2e Series accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in less than 10 seconds with a top speed over 85 mph (137 km/h).  Their first vehicle will be the all-electric Aptera 2e (formerly the Typ-1e) , with plans for a follow-on plug-in hybrid Aptera 2h  (formerly the Typ-1h). The fuel efficiency of 300 mpg-US  (0.78 L/100 km) when plugged in every 120 miles (190 km) would make it one of the most fuel-efficient cars in the world.

The Aptera’s long road to production is no secret. In fact, it was the first subject the company’s CEO, Paul Wilbur, touched on. Funding hasn’t been easy, and Aptera is banking on securing a $184 million loan from the Department of Energy to it help continue its efforts.
