Aptera's Solar-Powered EV Goes From 0 to 60 MPH in 3.5 Seconds
Achieving the stunning numbers is all about cheating drag and reducing mass. The most efficient four-seat Nissan Leaf Plus, with a 62kWh battery 1,557kg (2x) and is EPA-rated at 310wh per mile, 3x more than Aptera.
The body shell is made of simple resin-infused sandwich-core composite sections bonded together, both lighter and less costly than steel or aluminum.

2 or 3 Elaphe 50 kW (67 horsepower) in-wheel electric motors will power it. Less than 100 Wh of energy per mile, making it about 2.5 times as energy efficient as a Tesla Model 3 >> 16km/kWh.
Regardless of capacity, the pack will be liquid cooled, though not with the conventional radiators and pumps used by most EVs. Instead – and the team was very vague on this point, referring to pending patents – the cooling is achieved, somehow, via the body surface.

Aptera's engineers plan to evaluate the effects of using two wheel motors against three; virtually everything else up front is power electronics.
The battery remains located on the cabin floor, tilted up at its back end.
The Aptera body design was inspired by the VW 1L car with Cd 0,159 compared to 0.30-0.40 for typical cars. The XL1 is 3.47m long, 1.25m wide and 1.10m tall. VW ID Buzz: Wheelbase 3,3m, Length 4,94m, Width 1,98m, Height 1,96m. Tesla’s Model 3 has a drag coefficient of 0.23, and Volkswagen’s ID 4 electric SUV is at 0.28
Front Wheel/Tire Size P175/65 R14 X 5.5, Rear Wheel/Tire Size P195/60 R15 X 6.5
