Default Aptera 2e is coming back!?!?

Sorry, I felt this deserved its own thread. I need to drive to Santa Rosa and check this out!

Sonoma developer Aptera plans to assemble futuristic electric vehicles in Santa Rosa in partnership with Jonway Group | PressDemocrat.com

"A Sonoma developer plans to assemble futuristic electric vehicles in Santa Rosa in partnership with a Chinese automaker that acquired the prototype from a failed Southern California startup."

From May 2012.

"The partnership could produce 25,000 cars over the next year, Deringer said. The new company, called ApteraUSA, is aiming for a price point between $25,000 and $30,000."

Aptera Homepage | Aptera Motors is being updated a bit as well . . .

How can I be #1 in line!?!?

That's great news. Both for the future of electric vehicles and the Bay Area job market.

Can you imagine the Bay Area as the new meca for electric vehicles with Tesla/Toyota venture in the East/South Bay and Aptera in the north bay?

edit: yah! 100th post!
