How much longer will we have to wait on Aptera to deliver their goods? Maybe choosing Remy to supply the electric motors will be a step in the right direction and hasten the car’s appearance. We were hoping to see Aptera’s for sale this year, but that seems unlikely at this point.
From Green Car Congress:
Remy International will supply HVH250 electric motors (earlier post) for Aptera Motors’s Aptera 2e electric vehicle. Remy is already supplying a High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) electric motor for Aptera’s entry in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize, where the 2e has successfully reached fourth phase of competition.
The three-wheel Aptera 2e has a novel light-weight design weighing approximately 1,800 pounds. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in ten seconds and has a top speed of 90 mph (145 km/h) with a range of nearly 200 miles (322 km).
Aptera said they chose the Remy HVH250 electric motor for the superior technology, reliability and speed to market the motor offers. Specifically, the HVH250 motor provides the high power density and torque Aptera was seeking; and the motor is compact and light which helps keep down the overall weight of the vehicle, contributing to the driving range. Additionally, the technology provides cooling efficiency that permits the Aptera 2e to run at higher speeds longer than other motors, an important feature in today’s freeway-heavy transportation system.
