Counter that with much less damage in case of a side swipe. When parking on a road I always try to park at a bit of an angle with the rear further out for that reason.

That grille reminds me of what Andreas Zapatinas did at Subaru. And he had some previous experiences at BMW and Alfa Romeo too, even though he didn't take part on the development of the 2002.

The interior is just as amazing as the exterior.

Would be interesting to try the hybrid approach on this design, eventually resorting to the engine and rear swing-arm assembly of some large scooter.

This is where we are maybe a bit different from other small guys, from the [Electra Meccanica] Solos, Arcimoto, and some other guys [that are shipping]. We are building a brand. The Nobe brand. We anticipate three models [a planned 200GT cabrio and 500 model, a four-wheeled mini-truck, have also been designed by Meelis Lillemets

Here's where they redeem that side-by-side seating and steering wheel, add a fourth wheel.

edit: I watched the video. The camper interior sounds nice, but Aptera has the lift-back

Unless they could consider to do a reverse-trike with a front loading bay, similar to some older tricycles which used to be made in countries such as Germany or Portugal.
