This New Solar EV Has a 1,000-Mile Range—But You May Never Need to Charge It
Both variations sold out in just 24 hours.

San Diego-based Aptera has just unveiled a new solar-based
three-wheeler it claims doesn’t require charging—but just happens to
have a 1,000-mile battery-electric range for good measure.

The futuristic trike, which has an almost Jetsons flying car-like
aesthetic, features more than 32 square feet of solar panels that are
integrated into the body.

Preorders for the Paradigm ($29,900) and Paradigm Plus ($46,900)
opened last Friday, and both vehicles sold out in just 24 hours.

I'm not sure if this very lightweight car would stand up to being
bashed about by large SUVs trying to push them out of the way.  ;)
So maybe it is more of a Californian town car?
