This Wild Electric Car Needs Little Charging, Because It Runs Partly on Sunshine

Aptera Motors, a southern California-based startup devoted to manufacturing “high-efficiency road vehicles,” just started taking orders last week for a three-wheeled car that runs partly on sun. The car is called the Aptera, and it looks like the Batmobile or Delorian of the future.
So what does “runs partly on sun” mean? The car has a 100 kilowatt-hour battery pack, and you can plug it in to charge just like any other electric car. But it also has a solar roof array, called Never Charge, that on a sunny day will add enough energy to the battery for the car to go about 40 miles. There’s an option to put a few more panels on the car’s hood and hatch, which could add up to 24 additional miles of range, according to Car and Driver.
