Aptera Typ1

Mon, 10 Sep 2007

Aptera has released images of their Typ1. Designed by Jason Hill of design consultancy 'eleven' for maximum energy efficiency in aerodynamics and sustainability, the Aptera seats two side by side in a three-wheel configuration. Key aspects of the vehicle are safety and functionality with a driven simplicity in the shapes and lines.

The Aptera is constructed of composite materials and features aluminum and steel elements creating a safety cage. Nearly all of the interior elements are made of recycled materials and are eco-friendly. Drivetrain options are plug-in hybrid or all electric, while transporting two adults and a child in a safe, climate-controlled environment. The Typ1 uses minimal electricity, gasoline or diesel fuel. The first two drivable Typ1 prototypes will be completed in a few weeks.
