Recently Aptera [2] announced that they have rolled out the first pre-production model of their eagerly anticipated 2e [3]. The sleek electric vehicle features an incredibly strong and aerodynamic [4] body, a lithium-based battery, front wheel drive, and an improved door design, marking a significant landmark on the road to release by October of 2009.

Although Aptera [2]‘s pre-production 2e will be slightly different from the finalized vehicle, it’s great to see the company on track for a release later this year. The Aptera 2e is designed to go from 0-60 in under 10 seconds, have a maximum speed of 90mph and give you around 100 miles [5] on a charge. The final cost of the vehicle is yet to be decided but is expected to be between $25,000 to $45,000, and Aptera has already received nearly 4,000 deposits
