With global warming and climate change becoming more and more problematic with seemingly every passing day, some good news has finally arrived which may help slow down the world’s catastrophic descent into a burning ball of rubble.
The world’s first ‘never charge’ electric car has sold out in less than 24 hours, it has been confirmed by Aptera, the California based company behind the Paradigm and Paradigm+ models.
Both Paradigms are solar powered and have a range of 1,000 miles, meaning not only do they never need charging by their owners, but they can also take in a fair few journeys before their energy is completely depleted before another top up from the sun.
The eco-friendly vehicles cost just $26,000 (£19,661) and attracted plenty of custom on their opening day of sale, with customers scarcely able to believe they were real and not too good to be true.
Despite the cars already selling out, Aptera have informed customers that they can still reserve bespoke models that they can design themselves.
A description on Aptera’s website says, “Aptera leverages breakthroughs in lightweight structures, low-drag aerodynamics and cooling, material science and manufacturing processes to deliver the most efficient vehicle ever made available to consumers.
“Aptera’s Never Charge is built into every vehicle and is designed to harvest enough sunlight to travel over 11,000 miles per year in most regions.”
With the British government recently announcing that they would ban the sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2030, electric alternatives are going to be needed by everyone pretty soon, so Aptera’s model could be the future for getting us all from A to B.
We’d still much prefer hoverboards, though.
