Most people have switched to electric cars because of their efficiency, solar powered car is the most efficient. With a very light three-wheel design and a drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.13, the Aptera SEV can go 250 miles on a fairly small battery and 1,000 miles on a larger battery. The Aptera EV is so efficient that by installing up to 700W of solar power, you can increase your range to 40 miles a day, all you have to do is park your car in a sunny spot.

The company managed to turn this news into more than 22,000 vehicle orders. Now all that's left is to get it into production, which is no easy task for a small startup, but now it's a well-funded startup.

The company announced that it has received $40 million in commitments for its latest crowdfunding round.
