After paying $4.41 per gallon in San Jose the other day, I decided to take action. For $500 I reserved a production slot (#2,366 to be precise) for the new Aptera hybrid vehicle being developed in Carlsbad, California. When delivered sometime in 2010, this vehicle will cost about $30,000, get over 200 miles per gallon and will have a top speed of about 85 miles per hour. Plus, it looks cool.
