The electric car was developed by the Aptera startup. It is noteworthy that for such characteristics the price tag came out very budgetary.

US startup Aptera announced the start of accepting orders for its unusual electric car. This became known on Saturday, December 5. The novelty has two main features. The first is a three-wheeled performance. The second can impress even more – the power reserve without recharging is only 1600 kilometers.

True, we are talking about the maximum configuration with a power of 201 hp, an all-wheel drive system and very capacious batteries. The starting equipment has a return of 134 hp. and a battery of 25 kW / h. The range of such a modification will be 400 km – not impressive, but not bad either. In order to make a reservation, you need to make an advance payment of $ 100.

And the most affordable configuration will cost $ 25,900. The large power reserve can be explained by two parameters – the weight of the car in the maximum configuration is only 998 kg, and in the base this parameter is at the level of 816 kg.

Also, due to the shape, the drag coefficient is very low – 0.13.

The developers have not forgotten about comfort – from the equipment we note the level 2 autonomous driving system, a special set for driving in difficult conditions, a tent for camping and even a built-in tent.

In the meantime, new details have become known about the electrification of Skoda cars. The next models with electric motors should be the sedan, as well as the sitikar. In the meantime, Skoda will concentrate on the Enyaq model.
