Aptera website updated...

Aptera's website has been much less annoying, and it looks like they've put some real information up.

It looks like manufacturing won't begin for another year and that some of the system selection is still underway, such as battery sourcing for both the electric and hybrid models.

One interesting figure I noted in the reading was a reported 230mpg using a small diesel engine with no electric assistance. They project 300mpg for most commuting applications (first 120 miles of travel) and then dropping to around 130mpg over longer distances for the hybrid.

Not too shabby.
