Aptera To Be Eligible For Funding From Dept Of Energy

As many of you know, I follow Aptera news pretty closely ...

Here's some welcome news.

As reported by AutoBlogGREEN:

Following months of debate, Congress has approved a bill that will pave the way for three-wheeled vehicle manufacturers like Aptera to qualify for funding from the Department of Energy.

... Assuming the bill passes the President's desk, any manufacturer of enclosed three-wheeled vehicles that can carry at least two adults while returning at least 75 miles per gallon will be eligible for funding, though the DOE will still approve applications on a case-by-case basis.

Obama is expected to sign the bill.

[UPDATE] A reader tip reminded me that Obama did sign the bill ... and Aptera applied for and is expected receive additional funding from the Department Of Energy
