The electric car is once again in the national spotlight as
automobile manufacturers compete to create a more environmentally friendly
vehicle.The Obama Administration has
set a lofty goal for the U.S.
transportation industry: 1 million plug-in hybrid cars on the road by
2015.Here is a look at one innovative
car that might be popping up on freeways across the country starting next year.
The Aptera 2e is a plug-in, all-electric vehicle.The three-wheeled car seats two, travels up
to 100 miles on a single charge and can reach a speed of 90 mph.Equipped with state of the art safety
features including a race car-like passenger safety zone, the Aptera 2e is as
safe as any car on the road according to Aptera Motors CEO Paul Wilbur.What makes the car truly unique is its aerodynamic
design.The vehicle resembles the shape
of a bird gliding through the wind, allowing the Aptera 2e to work with the
wind rather than against it.Priced
between $25,000 and $40,000, the Aptera 2e was designed to be affordable for
the average family.Can you see yourself
