Going green | Teardrop shaped electric car: Aptera 2e

If you live in California you might just see this 3-wheeled electric car cruising people to work.  It’s not good for much else because it’s a two-seater and only has a range of 100 miles per charge.  I can’t see a lot of storage room in there anywhere for groceries… Anyway, as far as the […]
