Frustration can lead to great innovations, and that's what happened with Steve Fambro and Aptera. Fambro was fed up with Southern California's traffic and wanted a solution to electric vehicles' biggest problems - range and charge times.
So, he created Aptera, an ultra-aerodynamic, lightweight car with a unique design. The hood, roof, and dash are covered in solar panels to extend the range and reduce charging downtime.
Aptera boasts a massive 1,000-mile range, but performance is not sacrificed with a sub-four second 0-60 MPH time. The car is expected to hit production in 2023, with the caveat of better performance in sunny weather.
