This is Aptera, an electric commuter car that runs itself on solar, and it’s set to start at just $25,900.
The car is also designed with the lowest drag coefficient thanks to its design and lightweight. And yes, there are solar panels built right onto the vehicle. So you just drive it and leave it out in the sun to recharge. Would you ever consider a solar electric car option like the Aptera?

It’s a Self-Powered, Solar Electric Vehicle (SEV)
Normally, solar panels on electric vehicles don’t make sense because most electric cars are so heavy that the solar doesn’t do much.
But in this case, the car is so lightweight and its drag coefficient is so low, that it does make sense to use solar panels for self-recharging.
In other words, the car is so efficient, that it doesn’t take much energy to get it going as well as to keep it going. Therefore, built-in solar charging makes sense for it. And it can charge up to 40 miles of range per day from the sun, which covers most people’s daily needs.
And some models can have batteries with the ability for up to 1,000 miles of range!
It’s set to release within the next few years and will start at just $25,900, and it will also be eligible for EV tax credits, taking the price further down.
