Aptera has come a long way to making solar electric cars a reality in the US. As a second iteration, the company introduced its flagship Aptera SEV in late 2020, which was soon followed by three different alpha versions complete with black, white and metallic silver exteriors.
In early 2022, a startup in San Diego began share your beta progress SEV, which is proper as a result, the Tesla Model 3 won and the Audi R8 GT Spyder in a drag race. After the beta phase, the company moved to a new facility with an area of 80,000 square meters. ft. a little to the north in Carlsbad, California, where future SEVs will be built.
In early August, Aptera began teasing its latest prototype, the Gamma. It originally started with post on social networks with images of the interior which offers a clean, minimalist look, complete with instrument panel and central display. A video released later in August gave the public an even closer look at Aptera’s gamma phase.
Now, we got an even better look at the SEV Aptera gamma, both inside and out, during Fully Charged Live in the startup’s hometown of San Diego. Look at it.

A large crowd gathered outside Aptera’s booth at the San Diego Convention Center this morning as the company kicked off the first day of Fully Charged Live with the public debut of its gamma prototype.
As you can see from the images above, this is the most buttoned up future solar electric car to date. To be honest, it was difficult to even get the images you see above due to the amount of people at the Aptera booth trying to get a look at the gamma prototype.
Aptera says that the range will soon be followed by Delta prototypes that will be destined for production before the solar electric vehicles start being assembled here in Southern California. Aptera currently has over 32,000 bookings for its flagship SEV over 10,000 new bookings since May.
The startup says it is continuing to ramp up large-scale production in 2023. We hope to visit Aptera’s new facility here and in Southern California soon and will work to offer you readers a closer look at these SEVs as they progress to the delta phase.
