Aptera acknowledges production delays, major changes – Hot News

Product delays from startup companies should come as no surprise, especially from those aspiring to build green cars. The latest is California based Aptera who is developing a tear drop-shaped, two-seat three-wheeler. The company had originally promised to start delivering the electric 2e by the end of 2008.

 


 Unfortunately, that first “production intent” example is still at least a week away from completion and, according to an email sent to people who had put down $500 refundable deposits, that vehicle will stay within the company. In fact, Aptera will be slowly building vehicles until at least October before it ships any to customers.

The reason is because in recent months the company has made a couple minor changes at customers’ behest. You know, little things like switching the car’s layout from driving the single rear wheel to the two front wheels. That and adding a roll down section to the windows so you can hit the drive through window without opening the door. In order to get a handle on real demand, the company is also offering people the chance to convert their deposits to non-refundable status, which will also get them an extra $250 off the final price. Check out the whole email received by those customers after the jump. Hat tip to aptera buyer!
