Aptera’s solar car, which finally It will be called “Gamma” in its production versionis advancing by leaps and bounds towards the assembly line, which it intends to reach by the end of the year.
Its official debut could be a matter of days and, meanwhile, the Californian manufacturer has revealed juicy images of what could be the final version of the cabin, which includes some amazing details.
Minimalism taken to its maximum expression
Before his arrival, the futuristic three-wheeler that promises up to 1,609 km of autonomy, continues to sweep and already far exceeds 22,000 reservations. To generate so much expectation among its attributes, the technology it equips, its surprising price and its curious design both exterior and interior.
From the images of previous releases, Aptera had already given us some clues about the cabin of its first solar electric car (SEV for its acronym in English).
But now, before the imminent official debut of the production version, the American company has wanted to leave us with honey on our lips with a publication that is revolutionizing the networks.
“It’s here and it’s better than ever” says the official tweet. And until we can finally have more details of the final model that It’s been in the making for nearly two decades. for the moment what we see catches our attention powerfully.
Of course, the interior of “Gamma” is simpler, cleaner and more minimalist than ever, and features some substantial changes from previous teasers and releases.
Among them, the main one is a very peculiar steering wheel reminiscent of the famous Tesla “yoke”, which only includes two buttons at its ends and appears to be made of composite material.
In this sense, the safest thing is that it is a mix that includes cvero de origen vegetal as well as the door skins, as Aptera has worked with a large amount of recycled materials to manufacture all versions of its solar electric vehicle.
Also, “Gamma” has two large screens: one for what looks like the digital instrument panel, and the other -in a central position and oriented towards the driver-, which could bring together the information and entertainment functions that the SEV finally equips.
In the official website of the brand You can also see in more detail both the seats, which seem very ergonomic, and previous versions of the Gamma’s cabin with different color configurations.
These, at least for now, present the round steering wheel that we already knew and that can also be seen in the videos of the first dynamic tests that specialized media such as “Fully Charged Show” have already been able to do to the vehicle.
While the mystery of which of the steering wheels will equip the Gamma as standard is revealed, reservations continue to increase. The company, which says it already has more than 22,000 firm, last year raised $4 million in funding and received more than 7,000 pre-orders (advance reservation of 100 dollars).
24 hours until you can get all the @aptera_motors craziness on your screen.

In the performance section at the moment there do not seem to be changes. Initially, the Aptera Gamma will have two mechanical variants: a 100 kW (136 hp) front-wheel drive version and an all-wheel drive version whose engines deliver up to 150 kW (204 hp).
The first ensures acceleration from 0 to 96 km/h in 5.5 seconds and the second does the same in 3.5. In both cases, the maximum speed is 177 km/h.
Another noteworthy fact is that it has one of the best aerodynamic coefficients of the market, with a Cx of just 0.13. Regarding dimensions, it measures 4.36 m long, 2.23 m wide and 1.44 m high. In addition, it promises a trunk capacity of 708 l.
To the above we only have to add its extensive autonomy or a price that starts at 25,900 dollars and reaches 50,700 dollars – from just over 25,100 euros to change less than 50,000 euros at the current exchange rate-, to have the rest of the ingredients of the recipe for the success of Aptera’s SEV on the other side of the pond.
Gamma has some advantage at the moment compared to other solar car projects that can already be requested under reservation, such as the Lightyear One, but not the Sono Sion, which is already on sale in Europe, and is cheaper than a Peugeot e-208.
