Evey one of these that cost as much or more than a full sized car is doomed before it gets off the drawing board.
Part of the problem is it is electric powered and people that do long distance commuting can't use this car unless it is a hybrid.. In a sense these cars are a good thing as they helped pave the road for Elio.. Paul knows the shortcomings such as price and driving range and can drastically improve on this..
Gizmag. 'New company set to resurrect the Aptera automobile'
There is - supposedly - one built in the USA and one built in China. It would be neat to see a hybrid version or a version with a gas engine. Perhaps they could extend the range with fuel cells. Perhaps similar to the one from Intelligent Energy.

100 MPG, Hand-Built, Gasoline-Powered Aptera Set For U.S?
Green Car Reports June 12, 2013.
'We were skeptical when a Chinese automaker then took up the reins, but that same company still promises the Aptera will return--maybe even as a straight-up gasoline-engined vehicle.'
I'll wait for my Elio because I believe there is a greater likelihood it will be produced
AND IT IS MADE IN THE USA
And it will fail again. No way they can touch EM's price unless they're willing to sell for a loss just to get into the market.
Would be tough to drive it home from the factory.
Wow, two years ago and they still really have nothing.
