Aptera partners with Elaphe for in-wheel-motor technology

Green Car Congress

The rebooted Aptera Motors has teamed with Elaphe Propulsion Technologies on a long-range, volume production electric vehicle powered by in-wheel motors. Elaphe is a perfect match for Aptera. Having tested Aptera’s first vehicles back in 2010, it’s great to finally collaborate.

Others include the Fisker Karma, the Aptera 2e, the Coda sedan, Chevy’s Volt and Tesla’s Model S. Americans who have been waiting for an affordable, all-electric car won’t have to wait much longer. While it will be the first affordable all-electric car to hit the market, several other models are expected to roll out within the next two years. Electric vehicles are powered by batteries instead of internal combustion engines.
