Atera Raises $24 Million “C” Round

by The Editors on July 28, 2008

Aptera Interior Photo 540X223Turns out that Google money we told you about last week was only a drop in the bucket. Thanks to Esenjay Investments, the Simons Family, and the Beall Family Trust the Carlsbad based electric motorcycle company has $24 million more to roll with, according to a story on c|net.com.

Aptera has set the end of this year for the release of its all-electric Typ-1, a two-seater, three-wheeled electric car whose streamlined shape might look at home in a Jetsons cartoon. Each street-legal vehicle would cost less than $30,000.

And if you want one: get on the list. The company has reportedly already accepted 3,000 $500 deposits for the 300 mpg vehicles.
