Aptera Hits The Road In October

by The Editors on January 8, 2009

Aptera Profile-300X120In a letter to Aptera car fans, Carlsbadistan’s only car company has apologized for not getting cars out on schedule and promises to have them rolling by October 2009, according to a story on the blog Gas2.org:

Our most recent corporate commitment was that we would deliver the first production Typ-1, now known as the 2e, by the close of 2008. Despite our well-intentioned efforts, we were unable to complete that vehicle before the close of the year, so it’s now slated for January 16. However, unlike prior plans, this vehicle will not be delivered to a retail customer. We will continue our builds but at a much slower rate starting with a small test fleet of the enhanced vehicles, then moving to our volume production launch on October 1, 2009.”

The all-electric cars will be priced in the “mid $20k to $40k” range depending on options. We can hardly wait.
