More on Aptera

Mostly a presentation about the work that Idealabs is working on, but a bit about Aptera, an Idealab company.

Series hybrid, expected range 1000-miles. From the presentation, Series Hybrid means the vehicle will run on batteries and then use its motor to recharge the batteries when a plug isn't available. Seems a little too good to be true.

Also some interesting work being done on PV and Solar Furnaces, and other technologies.

Found on AutoBlogGreen. See their article for some commentary about the battle of snipes Tesla and Aptera seem to be having.
