A futuristic looking electric car with three wheels, called the Aptera 2e, is supposed to start production in October. Aptera Motors describes their 2e as a two-seat commuter vehicle that will feature a driving range of more than 100 miles per charge, go from zero to 60 m.p.h. in under 10 seconds and hit speeds of 90 m.p.h.
The Vista, Calif., company is one of several new start-ups hoping to sell electric cars. The 2e will be sold only in California initially with plans to sell it elsewhere in the United States by late 2010. Aptera gave a wide range for the price–$25,000 to $45,000.
