Second: I hate those stupid-ass Popular Mechanics editors for getting to drive an Aptera Typ-1e before I had a chance too. It’s certainly my most looked-forward-to electric vehicle. They’ve got tons of exclusive pictures and (as mentioned) video. Damn you, Ben Stewart!
Think the Typ-1 looks funny? Well its shape is designed for maximum aero efficiency–the coefficient of drag is an astounding 0.11. Aptera founder and CEO Steve Fambro says sticking your hand out the window of an average car driving 55 mph creates more drag than the Aptera’s entire body.
