Aptera Gets Google Millions

by The Editors on July 23, 2008

Home4Carlsbad’s three-wheeled electric motorcycle company Aptera Motors has received $2.75 million from RechargeIT, a company run by Google’s philanthropic arm, according to VentureBeat.

The 230+ miles-per-gallon Aptera has received plenty of attention over the past few months, and a post here on VentureBeat asking whether readers would drive the odd-looking vehicle continues to get responses indicating that yes, quite a few people are interested in the $30,000 car.

Every little bit helps, huh?

I’m glad to hear this exciting news. Aptera is a company with a big hairy audacious goal. And it’s fantastic that it’s located in Carlsbad.

I hope it’s getting a lot of orders. It’s a zany looking thing but that just makes me want it more!
