Aptera Reboot - Improved
 
This is very interesting - the original founders of Aptera have restarted the company, and have redesigned it:

It appears to have in wheel motors on all 3 wheels. This will improve aero, by avoiding exposed drive shafts, and probably more efficient, too.

They are 50kW in-wheel motors.

200 HP on a lightweight trike? That's monstrous.

The most important number.
How many years?

They went with hub motors so this one might be vapor too.

"Next year!"--every year.

With the proceeds from the aptera 1 scam dwindling, they had to let enough time elapse for the stench from that and elio to dissipate before rebooting.

Stupid chassis can't handle high hp and speed. That was proven at x-prize, and it hasn't been improved.

Frank, Frank, Frank, Frank! These things only matter for cars that are actually produced!

So, when are they rebooting that Eel scam trike?

They should have aimed for more low-hanging fruit, like a20 kWh battery should be plenty
